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.

Finally able to try the famous Two Hearted Ale (Hopslam, you're next...)
Poured into tulip; slightly hazy orange-gold with a fluffy white head, very nice lacing. Smell is muted bready malts balanced very nicely with sweet floral and fruity notes, as well as some yeast scents. Taste is incredibly well balanced; it starts out with smooth subdued malt, buttery flavors and herbal/citrus/bitter hops all blend together in a delicious orgy of flavor. 7% isn't noticeable at all, I'd be tempted to session this one all day. Overall I'm a bit underwhelmed, but such is the case with probably almost any super-hyped beer.

Frothy off white head. Clear deep golden color with little to no carbonation bubbles.

Floral aroma with fruit, specifically cranberries, and black pepper, big wonderful smell.

Tastes of herbs and malt up front and is quickly met with lots of spicy floral hops. It's robust and complex. With every drink you get that great aroma and a surpisingly different taste that both contrasts and compliments each other.

Nice mouthfeel almost creamy and very smooth.

Lots of hops, but very smooth and fun to drink and enjoy.

Does taste like an IPA but is very hearty...

Medium head, long lasting. Hazy amber color, upcharge of streams of medium bubbles. Straw aroma with definite marmalade smells. Hoppy, bitey flavor, more like orange rind than grapefruit. Malts slightly cut the hops, preventing a "back swallow" burn and giving a lightly syrupy, medium body. Impressive fullness. Solid beer, definitely as interesting as Kalamazoo's fleet of Stouts. A mouth "wrangler" to some degree, but not catoonish. Its rare that I get particularly excited by an American IPA but the hops on this one are outstanding without being overwhelming, juicy and straddling the line between citric and minty but retaining a fresh sense.
