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.

Fresh bottle from the brewery store.

Pours a nice clear, rich gold topped by an rocky head. Gorgeous lacing and retention.

Pine and grapefruit dominate the aroma, with tangerine and caramel in the background. Quite restrained for an IPA though I must say.

C-hop flavor dominates, lots of grapefruit and pine, balanced against a nice sweet pale malt and toffee. And that's it. Lots of citrusy hops balanced against caramel malt. But expertly balanced. Simple. Uncomplicated. Satisfying. Which is just how I liked my American IPAs.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very satisfying.

Just a topnotch IPA, all the way. Not sure I get what about it is "two hearted" or how that ties into the piscine motif of the label though. A little weak in the aroma as compared to my top favorites in the style, but otherwise fantastic!

I flippin love this beer. Aroma is soft citrus/floral notes, but also somehow briny and evocative to me of the seashore or (as more appropriate for Michigan) a day out on the lakes. The mouthfeel is rather full-bodied for an IPA. Carbonation is not noticeable. Very little bitterness/dryness--just a faint note from the hops. What is amazing here is the beautiful balance between the malts and hops, and the easy drinkability that somehow highly rewards every sip. And again, I find this beer highly evocative--really reminds me of laid-back days in the great, wild outdoors. One of my favorite IPAs.
