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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Slightly hazy orange color. Thick two fingered head that settles and leaves a good amount of lacing as you go.

Smell: Piney hops dominate. Grapefruit and citrus in the background. Pleasant aroma.

Taste: Citrus takes the front in the taste. Each swallow turns into a piney hoppy taste with a bit of floral hops in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and easy to drink. The hoppy aftertaste will be a bit much for those who do not consider themselves hopheads.

Drinkability: Good tasting brew with mabey a bit too hoppy of an aftertaste to appeal to non hop fans. Would not have more than one of these at a time. Not that it is bad, but leans a bit too much on the hops. I still believe that the 90 Minute is the ultimate beer when it comes to this style.

Thanks to the guys at Brown Derby International Wine Center in Springfield, MO for hooking me up with Two Hearted Ale.

Poured a crystal clear golden yellow into a pint glass with a two finger white soapy head. Head retention was good. Moderate lace noted.
A little on the pale side, but still looked nice.

Aromas are straight-on grapefruit and pine sap slathered in sweet bisquity malt.

Flavors are replicated from the nose. Nicely balanced. Shades turn from citrus to sweet malt to bisquits and on to bittering hops. Not overkill, but not weak.

Feel is good, maybe thinner than most good IPAs I've encountered, but the carbonation fills the gap nicely.

This is not a knock your socks off IPA for the extreme hophead and it's not intended to be such. Overall Two Hearted Ale is higly drinkable and enjoyable. One great goto IPA if you have access in your area (which I don't). I should've bought a case...damn.
