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.

Served on-tap at Mad Mex in Columbus in a pint glass.
A: Golden; served with a white fluffy head that died to a good lace.
S: Pine, citrus hops, earthy grapefruit, and sweet malts.
T: Bitter, slightly piney, mixed with peach and strawberry fruit character. The alcohol is mild but comes off as gin. There is well-balanced, yet strong hops character.
M: Moderately syrupy with a frothy carbonation.
D: Exceptional for an IPA.

At The Porter 1/20/10 during Firkin Madness

Beer wasn't all that different from the tap or bottled versions, but was slightly more enjoyable - so will offer short review with modifications on original.

Nice hazy orange color with a large-bubbled white head. Smell had all the tropical hop characters and bready malt this beer is remarkable for. Flavor was also enjoyably sweet with fantastic mango/citrus/pineapple flavors over biscuity caramel malt. Mouthfeel was smooth, not dull like some cask beers and the lack of carbonation really seemed to prolong the bitter finish.

Two Hearted is a very good IPA that is even better as a cask ale.

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Bottled 26 day ago from this review.

A - This color is perfection for an IPA IMHO. Light clear golden orange that the sun sparkles in. Big 2.5 finger brilliant white head with nice retention. Leaves a nice collar around the glass with beautiful webbed lacing. Awesome.

S - Citrus grove of orange, lime and grapefruit. Nice floral hops with some earthiness and pine mixed in. Hints of light sweet malt and honey suckle. Fantastic balance.

T - Light citrus and hints of tropical fruit up front. I get some earthiness and floral hops with a touch of pine bitterness. Some sweet malt and honey suckle come in the middle. Finish is some bitter citrus. Not too bitter and not too sweet.

M - Great medium mouth feel that is very easy to drink. Carbonation is really good. Refreshing and hits all the taste buds.

O - Really solid IPA when fresh. My first time I had it, the bottle must have been old because I didn't care for it as much. Glad I gave it another go when I found it fresh. very happy that Bells dates their bottles.
