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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- A lovely amber/golden. Frothy head dies down to a lacy ring around the glass. its a beautiful beer.

S- Dominating piney hops with a underlying bked bread aroma

T- Hops did not dominate as much as I would have expected,but it is the primary taste throughout.here is a slight bready malt presence but it provides a meek body. The beer starts bitter and then the citrus/pine flavors take over, only to fall quickly into a chalky bitterness.

M- Ive heard people say they felt this beer was thick and syrupy, but I am not getting that at all. There is a very passive carbonation, butthe beer seems a little thin.

O- nice IPA.Hop heads will enjoy this, even though the hop profile isnt overly complex.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pale Straw to Gold in appearance. A small head that shows significant retention, but little lacing. Notable carbonation.

Smell: Strong floral/fruit bouquet. The fruit is very sweet--almost like a mango or pineapple.

Taste: There is a slightly fruity taste up front, and a slight hop finish in the back, but overall Two Hearted is a well-balanced IPA.

Mouthfeel: Moderate to minimal carbonation and a slightly creamy taste with a very crisp finish.

Drinkability: The balance makes it the beer very drinkable, and the carbonation isn't noticeable. 7% ABV, though, so take it easy on these bad boys.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Pours a beautiful golden honey. Ciders envy the radiance of this beer's color. Very minimal head that dissipates extremely fast.

S: Extremely floral- that is the most obvious scent at first...beneath that is the fragrance of hops intertwined with some pine notes. The more you smell, the more they all combine into one fantastic fragrance.

T: Like the smell, the first thing you get here is floral. Then hops. Then all pine. Then as you get deeper and deeper into your glass these all weave together into one perfectly balanced potion.

M: Medium carbonation when it first hits your mouth, then it turns velvety smooth. Dryer finish. Wonderful aftertaste...the pine almost leaves a minty sensation.

O: To be candid, I am very biased towards this beer- it has long been declared my all-time favorite way before I ever sat down to review it. That said, I almost expected to find some kind of flaw when I sat down and put 110% focus on it...but nothing really came to me. If anything, I suppose it's the fact that the first three or four tastes are never *as* great as the rest, probably due to your palette getting acclimated or something.

Just a perfectly balanced and solid all around beer. Everything an IPA should be.

I know that all 5s should be rare. This is a great beer.
Pours a hazy, burnt orange and is capped by a big frothy white head. There was nice lacing in my glass. Citrus aromas explode from the glass and are underlined by tropical fruit and a slight sweetness. Some pine as well as some grapefruit, pineapple, and orange flavors meet a nice malt feel. Medium body and medium-light in carbonation, Two Hearted Ale is well balanced.

This is one of my favorite IPA's for everyday drinking. It pours with a nice head and has a piney citrusy smell to it with a little bit of sweetness. It is very hoppy with a complex taste which is very drinkable with a nice balance between piney and fruity hops.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus, pineapple, peaches, mango, grapefruit, some piney resin and light malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a great tropical fruit taste from the hops giving it some citrus, pineapple, grapefruit flavor with some piney notes and light caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Great start to IPA Day!
