Excellent beer, one of the forefathers of American IPA's, and a great showcase of centennial hops.

This is a beer that makes sense to me. A perfectly biting flavor of citrus/hop/malt without the need of a pinch of this and a pinch of that (which I favor as well but this one doesn't need the extra alchemy, it's near perfect as is).

This used to be a regular for me then I got lured by the new - what sweet delight to revisit liquid bliss. Sometimes comfort comes from happy familiarity.

Pours hazy orange color, frothy lingering white head. Nice hop aromas from enormous hop additions. Love the American malts on the front end and nice crisp finish incredibly floral hops on the back end.

Love the fish on the label. Nice cloudy gold with interesting lacing. Smell is crisp yet faint. Eating jalapeno hummus it's hard to pinpoint taste exactly, but it's certainly as crisp as it's carbonation. Best I've had from this brewery.

Two hearted is a very well balanced ipa. At 7% its right in the middle of the pack in strength. The taste is a perfect blend of hops and malt. And at the price point, it's a very reasonable daily drinker. I recommend any ipa enthusiast to try this if they haven't already.
