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.

It’s been too long since I’ve had a damn fine IPA. So, let’s have a damn fine IPA. Two Hearted Ale pours a hazy dull copper with half a finger or less of foamy white head that's quick to dissipate. Loads of citrus and pine hops on the nose. Herbal and earthy in the hop profile as well. Simple, clean and... whatever the smell equivalent is for "tasty." A very hop forward brew, no doubt, but the balancing power of its smooth malt backbone cannot be overstated. The finish has hints of citrus, lingering malt and then a swooping bitterness comes in to wipe the palate clear. Exquisite. Goes down way too smooth for its 7% ABV.

Appearance - Orange, light copper with a slight haze. No visible carbonation. Half inch, khaki-colored head. After the head dissipates, lacing remains clinging to the side of the glass.

Aroma - You can smell the beer as soon as you crack the bottle open. You have sweetness from the malts and hops, citrus fruits (grapefruit, orange, lemon) as well as floral hops.

Taste - The grapefruit, orange, and a hint of lemon hit your tongue at the front. You get the sweetness from the beer as well. The floral flavors come in towards the back of the mouth and leave a nice, lingering bitterness. The aftertaste is a great combination of the fruits and floral flavors.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is minimal. Medium body. Bitter, but not overdone.

Overall - A delicious and flavorful IPA. Great stuff!
