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.

Unbelievably, in my five plus years of drinking craft beer I have never had a two hearted!

A- two hearted pours a darkened orange body with plenty of foam and a hazy glow. Very bold color amplifies the sticky white lacing that clings to the edges of the glass

S- a surging flower hop scent is coupled by a biscuity scent and balanced malt scent. Citrus, pine, and caramel scent are right there as well. It's a very appealing aromatic brew coming from an incredibly balanced scent profile

T- AWESOME! Perfect balance between piney citric hops and a clean biscuity malt backbone. Sweet hoppy fruit flavors are literally coated by the right amount of sweet malt that finishes with a bitter end. Some delicious grainy flavors linger at the end. Dare I say this is the one perfect description of a balanced ipa? Quite possibly

M- carbonation spot on with good flavor

O- hype for this beer is now understood. Two hearted is not a hops assault. It's a delicious balanced ipa that is not often achieved this deliciously. Pine, citrus, tropical fruit... Meet caramel, bready, sweet malt with a bitter finish. I will enjoy this leading up to the SU lacrosse game today! Come to NY Bell's!

As I write I'm enjoying this beer. I poured it into a snifter glass. The color is a nice, kind of a golden orange color. Had a wonderful amount of carbonation. Smell is good but when compared to some other well known IPA's is relatively mild. Taste is very good to even superb. Highly recommend this for you to try. I will enjoy this many more times.

Not your mainstream everyday IPA.

Unusually light copper color for an IPA and a bit cloudy, head a bit thin

Pleasing floral aroma

On the lower end of hoppy for an IPA, light enough to taste some complexity in the hops, leads with a flavor more like a Marzen, but finishes like an IPA

Feel is typical for IPA

Overall a nice change of pace if you get bored with the standard IPA fare.
