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.

"When in doubt, go with Two Hearted" is not a bad way to go through life. I've had this one many times before, but never took the time to sit down with one and write a formal review. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a beautiful caramel-gold, with a towering two and a half finger head of thick foam. Slightly hazy, with some incredible lacing.

S - Smells like running through an orange orchard, I imagine. Fresh citrus with some herbal character like an evergreen or spruce tree. Grapefruit and some tropical nature as well.

T - Eminently drinkable. Bursting hops with a great malty finish, some bready character in the aftertaste. Completely balanced and satisfying.

M - Maybe just a little on the lighter side, but can't fault it for its ease of drinking.

O - Easy to see why why this is old reliable. I'm so happy that I have everyday access to this beer. It scratches an itch, that's for sure.

On tap clear copper. Pure grapefruit on the nose with hop resin.

Tastes like clean crisp resinous grapefruit juice. Mildly carbonated big bitterness with a balanced finish. Slick mouthfeel that coats the tongue. Clean good flavors with intense drinkability. Nice big malty back bone that holds the beer and all it's flavors together into one great sip that leaves you looking for more. Had this out in chicago over the weekend and it was my first time out there, this along with some others i've had while i was out there made it clear that between english ipa's and west coast ipa's there is a legitimate midwest style ipa that is simple and delicious in it's own way. Super drinkable with simple but well blended flavors. Good reputation for a reason.

I really like this beer - served from a 12 ounce bottle into a six ounce glass. Light head, no lacing, dark amber color, a little bit cloudy. I would not really call this an American Ale, more like a hoppy amber, with a lot of the hop taste on the back of the tongue, very citrusy.

It is a refreshing and satisfying beer, highly recommended, and I am usually an IPA guy - this is a refreshing little break from hopbursted IPAs which are becoming so common.
