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.

3.75/5  rDev -12.2%

Appearance: Golden orange. Slightly hazy. Lots of lacing. White foamy head.

Nose: Hoppy and grassy. Some fruity notes.

Taste: Malty upfront, bitter hoppy finish. Not overpowering though.

Medium body. Pretty light carbonation

Relatively drinkable beer for an IPA

12oz bottle courtesy of Tangfoot. Thanks! I've been looking forward to this one...

A: Hazy amber, poured a gigantic rocky, off-white head that receded to a film of bubbles, and patchy lacing. A fairly steady stream of tiny bubbles streams from the bottom of my pint glass.

S: Clean, hoppy.

T: Really well-balanced! It seems like the flavors alternate from malt to hop and back again, with neither flavor trying to out-do the other. The finish is pleasant with a drying bitterness.

M: Smooth and creamy, with a light prickle from the carbonation.

D: Excellent. Two Hearted has lived up to my expectations. Too bad I don't live in MI.

On draft at my sister-in-laws wedding

Appearance: Pours a deep orangish amber with an offwhite head (maybe 1-2 inches). Head quickly fades with some sticky lacing on the glass.

Aroma: My favorite part of this beer. Aromas of fresh herbal hops some citrus, some pine. A balance of several hop varieties. Each playing off each other to give a depth of aroma that keeps you guessing.

Taste: This is an American IPA. Rich full malt with powerful hops. Grapefruit citrus. Cascades hops.By style guidelines its probably on the edge of double IPA with the amount of hop bitterness and flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Full bodied but not thick. Smooth and balanced although very bitter.

Drinkability: If I lived closer to MI or even in a state that sold this, I would drink this every day. Its my favorite Bells and its in the top 5 for favorite American IPA's. Smooth balanced and worth drinking every day.

I have seen this around and had no idea what it would be like, I've been trying singles lately and found it at Wine and More in a single so WTH. From the very first taste, WOW. Love it.

I came here and read the reviews and don't see the "bitter" some speak of. This is an excellent perfectly balanced beer that just rocketed to the top of my favorite list. I like stouts and have been "lighter" beers, this one will be hard to beat.

Aroma is pure hops, very similar to Dogfish 90 minute. No fruity hop aroma, just a thick blanket of hops.

Appearance is cloudy, golden color. Small head that dissipated pretty quickly.

Taste is again pure hops, not insanely bitter, pretty well balanced with malt.

Mouthfeel is nice, viscous and a little bit oily.

Drinkability is surprisingly good for a super bitter 7% ABV beer, could definitely have a few.

The beer was poured into a snifter. It came out amber with about 2 1/2 fingers of white head. The scent was very floral and fruity. The taste was extreme citrus with just the right amount of hops on the back end. The mouth feel is very smooth. I love this beer and try to pick it up anywhere that I see it available.
