Notes/Commercial Description:
An India Pale Ale style well suited for adventurous trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and an incredibly floral aroma.

4.22/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, batch number 9846 (that makes it about 2 1/2 months old, for those keeping score). Enjoyed from my Lost Coast pint glass.

A: Fairly clear yellowy orange in color, with about 1 1/2 inch head. Left a bit of lacing along the top edge of the glass.

S: Plenty of grapefruit and lemon, with a hit of pine and dry hop. Very little malt aroma.

T: Light, fruity and floral with lots of pungent grapefruit. There is a touch of sweet malt, but it is well balanced and not overpowering.

M: Thin with medium-low carbonation relative to other IPAs I have reviewed recently. It is also lacking that dry, astringent feel of a very hoppy IPA.

D: This one is a little too drinkable. If the ABV and price were a bit lower, I would call this a "session IPA."

Two Hearted is by no means a hop bomb IPA, but a perfect choice if you're in the mood for something mellow. I would recommend this one as a "starter" IPA for people who want to experiment with the style but haven't yet succumbed to hop addiction.

Having said that, I would like to try a fresher batch of this beer. I spent 5 minutes digging around for the pack with the highest batch number and still came home with one over 2 months old. Curse you, Bell's esoteric batch numbering system!!
