This was a popular beer at the bar I worked for in Ohio. We carried many beers by Bells and I liked most of them. After the popularity of the Two-Hearted Ale in our bar, I had to try it. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of American IPA's so I'm trying my best to adjust my palate for this style of beer, but I just couldn't find my chi with this one. I liked that it tried to balance itself out with subtle citrus hues, but I just found the hops to be way too overpowering. I felt that it became slightly easier to drink about halfway through the pint, but overall the excessive hoppiness does not seem properly balanced with the rest of the beer.

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.
