Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 12-11-2001

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.

A: A golden hazy yellow with a two finger ivory head that dissipates very quickly.

S: A sweet and bitter aroma. I can't identify the hop variety through the sweetness the comes from the beer.

T: Bitter at first with a pine and citrus note to it. It is then followed by a little too much sweetness for my liking.

M: OK carbonation and good retention.

O: A solid IPA. Is worth trying but don't go too far to get it.

Tasted On: 01-28-2012
Freshness: Bottled 12-19-2011
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Dogfish Head signature glass
Purchased: 6-pack from Wino's Depot, Bowling Green KY

Appearance: Clear, yellow-orange color with an off-white head. Beautiful lacing an an OK amount of retention from the finger-high head.

Smell: Big hop aromas of citrus; pineapple and grapefruit.

Taste: Heavy bitterness, with fruit/citrus flavors. Nice malt base supports the dry, hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated and crisp, with a medium-full body. Finish is bitter and dry.

Overall: Very good example of an IPA; tasty and flavorful.

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.
