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.

Appearance is golden. Light color for an IPA. Solid head w/excellent lacing.

Smell is floral. Citrus fruits. Lots of grapefruit and some orange?

Flavor is slightly hop bitter up front but the aftetaste is almost sweet (in a good way) with the citrus flavors lingering.

Mouth feel is excellent. Smooth. Goes down easily for the 7% ABV.

Overall this is an outstanding IPA. It makes an appearance in my fridge fairly regularly.

Two Hearted Ale fills a Blue Point snifter with hazy amber (SRM 6-8) while occasional columns of tiny bubbles add to the ¼ inch, pale orange, creamy head that quickly dissipates.

The aroma is dominated by apricot, followed by fresh orange and clear, but minimal, grapefruit and floral notes.

This offering is quite bitter up front with an equal balance of citrus flavors. Crisp and clean, with a light apricot finish that lingers. Slight warming ushers in the grapefruit flavors.

The medium body and dry finish accentuates a rough texture and light prickly carbonation.

Two Hearted Ale clearly deserves its reputation. One can easily imagine how a fresher example would be exquisite. Three months from bottling, this one still delivers while unwinding after a long day.
