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.

Served on tap at a columbus airport bar, into a large weizen glass
I’ve had this beer many times, but finally decided to review it while I sit at the airport waiting for connection flights

A: Dark golden with 1.5 fingers of dense white head. Has good retention and leaves a solid amount of lacing.

S: Citrus hop aromas, particularly orange and grapefruit, with a subtle piney aroma as well.

T: Citrus hops again, with a nice (but not overwhelming) bitterness. Heavy grapefruit, along with some orange and lemon zest. There is also the soapy flavor that I always notice when I drink this beer, which isn’t really a positive or negative, but it makes it identifiable if nothing else.

M/D: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Served too cold at this place, but can’t fault the beer for that.

O: Certainly a good IPA. There are many better ones out there, as Two Hearted doesn’t have the depth or complex palate profile as some of the best IPAs, but its definitely worthy of a drink and a nice find at a random airport bar.

Side note- better from the bottle.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Hazy golden in color with a slight brown hue. Small white head.

S - Tangy citrus and earthy pine aromas with a hint of sweet malt.

T - Hoppy citrus and pine notes immediately hit, followed by a light malty sweetness. A nice bready malt taste comes through towards the end with some bitterness lingering from the hops. This is a delicious IPA.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and creamy. A slightly dry finish.

D - Two Hearted is one of my favorite IPAs - for good reason. The delicious hop flavor is perfectly balanced by light malty sweetness and is highly drinkable for the style. I always try to have a six pack available in the fridge.

P: 12 fl oz bottle into an imperial pint glass. Bottle date is 01/17/12 = 3 days old!

A: SRM is straw yellow with a tinge of orange and brown. Semi-translucent and hazy. Head is off-white, 1 in, puffy, dissipates to 1 cm.

S: Big hops come off the nose with citrus notes and a malt base that gives some caramel and bread notes.

T: Big hop notes of citrus(grapefruit) along with some light floral notes. A touch of honey sweetness hits before the mild malt base. Aftertaste is a mild hop bitterness and light malt.

M: Medium body. Hops hitting first opens up the palate. Honey and malt hit, adding a bit of body. Mild hop bitterness on the aftertaste adds to the complexity of the beer and hits the edges of the palate. Semi-wet finish.

O: A classic. I have had this beer hundreds of times, but never written a review until now. This beer is very flavorful, packs a big hop punch, but is still mellow enough for the average beer drinker to enjoy. It pairs fantastically with a number of foods as well. I was very excited to get a sixer of this so fresh; how does Bells get it bottled and in stores in 3 days??? I will buy this again and again.
