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-Pours a hazy honey/gold with a thick white head that stays around for a while and leaves some lacing on the top of the glass.

S-Citrus hops are pretty strong, but you can also smell the biscuity malt as well.

T-Much like the nose with a decently strong citrus hop character balanced out by a significant malt backbone. Very tasty stuff.

M-Pretty thick for the style which I liked.

D-This is some very tasty stuff and a few can easily be drank in a session.

Overall, this is just a great beer. It has a significant malt character which some might not enjoy, but overall you can never go wrong drinking a Two Hearted.

A - Golden Red - excellent head - good lacing during the drink

S - Fruity and Floral

T - Some grapefruity citrusy notes. Excellente! Bitterness that just sits on your tongue and tastes fantastic.

O - This is my favorite American style IPA. I have yet to find one that beats it.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date. Pours a medium ambe with a fluffy 2 finger head, nice longevity and lace. Nice aromas of hops mixed with a fair amount of orange. Malt aromas are present but quickly fade due to the hop aromas. Something seems off in the flavor. I think it is too unbalanced. Yes, it is supposed to heavy on the hop side but its kind of harsh. I think it just needs a bigger malt presence. The hop amounts are fine, as is their flavor, its just a weak malt presence. It is still a good and quality made beer just unbalanced IMHO. If the malts were a bit more dominate, it would make an excellent brew.

Pours a cloudy golden slightly amber. Two finger fluffy cream colored head. Very attractive attenuation. Sticky lacing as the head slowly recedes.

Smells of some floral slightly citric and grassy hop notes. Almost like there's a touch of lavender mixed in somewhere. Slight caramel sweetness.

Taste stands out. The hops don't blow away the sweet dulce de leche malt notes. There is more of a grapefruit hop note than floral in the taste. Back end brings some of the slight lavender like floral hops.

Moderately carbonated and feels fresh and slightly sticky on the tongue.

Overall, this is a great ipa that stands apart from the crowd. I definitely will have and keep having this again.

Edit, I might be mixing lavender notes with mango. Seems odd but that was my initial thought.

A classic American IPA. It pours the color would expect, has a perfect head, and then the nose- wow! Great hop aromatics. The taste is just perfect- fruity, perfume hops, without any astringent bitterness. Just amazing. Malts are then as a great backbone, but this beer is about the hops as it should be. The approachableness of the hops is what really sets this apart from the crowd. Any average non hop head can have a sip of this and say- this is a really tasty beer. That is an accomplishment that can't be understated- for the masses and for the hop head. Between Two Hearted and Stone IPA for the best all round IPA in the US, in my limited experience.
