More beery with a kiss of hops on tap at the Barbary for the Dead Milkmen. Has that just right amount of bitter hops to keep you coming back with a strong malt backbone. Slightly citric. Well carbonated and crisp dare I say a bit watery.

Huge frothy head. Huge malty aroma. Massive malty taste with solid hopping. Love it.

Let me start out by saying this...I was stunned at how similar this is to Bell's Two Hearted, there's a few slight differences that make this not quite on the same level, but what a great effort by a local brewery. Look is a coppery brown color with a thin head but with lasting wisps of foam and lacing. Smell has lots of floral and citrusy hops and some pine. Taste has big citrus flavor (lemon, orange, grapefruit...both the juices and the rinds), some pine, and some floral notes. Good balance between bitter and sweet. Feel is about medium with medium carbonation, finishes dry and clean. It's just slightly more harshly hopped and slightly rougher on the finish than Two Hearted, but overall, a fantastic APA option for beer lovers in PA and the nearby areas.

Orange-straw color with a thick white head and plenty of lacing. A pleasant floral aroma with citrus and pine. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Moderate hop bitterness balanced with hop flavor and a light malt backbone. Refreshing and easy-drinking. A classic.
