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.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12 oz. brown bottle to a pint glass. Received from weizenbob in trade - thank you!! I wish Bells would distribute to Colorado this stuff is so good.

A: Rather hazy golden orange color with a slight cloudiness. Nice white head with good retention.

S: Great citrus hop aroma!

T: Citrus hops in your face with bittering hops at first. Very smooth draw unlike most IPAs. finishes crisp and clean.

M: Very even with strong carbonation.

D: Absolutely!

This has become one of my favorite beers not just for the style but overall. Such a terrific brew.

Low carbonation. Light amber. Honey straw. Two Hearted starts with a decent head and keeps solid lacing throughout. Malt bouquet profiles bready malts. Biscuity. Tropical hop aromas. Mango. Hints of sweet melons. Flavor is hop forward but not so much as to be tipping the scales one way or the other. A decent balance for the style overall. Medium-bodied. Sweet malt accentuates citrus-centric hops. Cascade and Centennials play their hand for sure. Caramel and toffee flavors as well as a bit of nuttiness blend in well. Great all-around beer that reminds one of a lawn-mower style beer. Low IBUs and decently hidden alcohol could make this dangerous.

Keep hearing about this beer on the forums and figured since I had the oppurtunity to try on I'd go for it. This beer pours a nice amber color with a 1 finger head that retains fairly well.

Smells malty and slightly hopped. Some caramel notes linger as well. Nothing really special but decent.

Tastes sweeter than I would have expected again caramel is the predominent with some citrus undertones. Slightly dry and bitter finish.

Smoth and crisp mouth feel.

All in all I think this maybe a little hyped as it is pretty basic, nothing spectacular. Worth a shot, but I won't be something I buy ofter.
