Look: It pours a cloudy dark orange color. It has a slightly off white head.

Smell: It has aromas of citrus, apricots, and pine.

Taste: It has flavors of citrus and apricots. There are some caramel flavors that provide the malt flavoring.

Feel: It is a light medium bodied brew with a moderate bitterness that lingers a while on the palate.

Overall: This is a moderately bitter IPA with fruity flavors and a bit of malt that is well balanced.

Two Hearted Ale was golden amber in color with a large white head. The head had good retention and left some lacing behind. The aroma was mostly hops (grapefruit) with a little malt in the backround. The taste was very good, cirus hops with a malt backround and a bitter finish. It is medium bodied and medium in carbonation. While the beer is bitter, it is not overly so, making it a very drinkable beer. Recommended.

Thanks to the very informative and generous onecrazymofo for this normally, unreachable IPA.
Pours a beautiful, golden orange w/ a full finger of creamy, tan head after a subtle poor....impressive lace.
Smells a bit sweet w/ hints of orange, grapefruit and vanilla. I can actually smell more malt than hops, which is reminding me of a Victory Hop Devil.
Taste is bitter hops in a good way....not the sweet IPA I was expecting. Again, tasting grapefruit...very refreshing and well balanced.
I could definitely make a session out of this beer....thanks again to onecrazymofo for the chance to try this very exceptional offering.

Thanks to franksnbeans for this extra.

Pours a slightly orange tinged yellow with almost two inches of white foam. The aroma is of citrus and pine hops, orange, grapefruit and lemon fruits as well. Nice biscuit type malt aroma. Taste is a good crisp flavor with just a right touch of bitterness. Good combination of citrus flavors and sweet malt backbone. As it warms up I detect some toasted aromas, toffee and butterscotch. Great mouthfeel and carbonation, the fizz makes it feel almost creamy. Great beer all around.

Had this at Big Muddy Pub in Alton,Illinois for the first time about three weeks ago.Easily one of my top two favorite beers on Earth right now.

A-Golden,slightly orange with a beautiful
two finger,stark white, pillowy head.Impressive
lacing for the duration of the pint.

S-Probably the highlight of this beer for me.The
Centennial hops are unmistakable.Pineapple,persimmon and fresh
hops on the nose.Even more exotic fruit notes
that I can't pinpoint.

T-Everything you would expect from the nose.This beer is an exercise in simplicity but still delightfully complex.Fresh fruit juice sweetness balanced perfectly with hoppy bitterness and light caramel malt.

M-Full,oily and satisfying.

D-This is a dangerously drinkable beer and it definitely belies it's 7% ABV.Easy to get caught up and drink a sixer.
