Two Hearted Ale is brewed in the American IPA style and comes in with an ABV of 7.0%. Brewed in Michigan, the beer is quite difficult to find in the Boston area, but if you can find yourself a six pack of the Two Hearted Ale do not let this one pass you by.
The beer pours a very robust amber color with hues of orange mixed in. When poured into a standard pint glass, a remarkable almost creamy off white foam was produced that left a light wispy lacing along the pint glass throughout the offering. There is a very light level of carbonation to Two Hearted Ale which lends to the smooth consistency of the pour.
The aroma upon being poured is immediately noticed. There is a rich floral scent that is appreciated along with a hunt of grapefruit and pine. One can tell that there is going to be a pleasant hop nature to this beer just upon the pouring of it.
As with any good beer, one can only hope that it is the taste that will truly shine with the beer. And you can rest assured that the taste of the Two Hearted Ale is a true bright shining beacon in the beer world. A complex taste hides the fact that this is an IPA at first because there is an initial smooth taste to the beer that again is noted with the grapefruit undertones. However, give the beer a second to work and the next taste is a very deep and rich hop taste that is what scores this beer so well. The hop nature of the beer brings out a nice bitterness to it but there is still that simple and smooth backing to the beer that is highlighted as well.
The drinkability of this beer is quite high and certainly could be used as a nice session beer even though it comes in with an ABV of 7.0%. There is not an offensive or overly alcohol strong nature to the taste of the beer and the smoothness that holds together the offering adds to the drinkability of the beer. With the pleasant taste and pairing of the sweetness aspects to the hoppy aspects, the beer could be deceiving, though, as it does pack a nice little punch.

Bright nose, bright taste with piney/sharp hop bitterness, mildly balanced with a minimum amount of maltiness. Very delicious. Drinks very clean and smoothly, no heat. I think this is a fantastic beer, much better than HopSlam for my money. Wish we could get it consistently here in CA!
