Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter.

Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere.

From notes 8/24/13. Pours a very deep gold producing 2 fingers of off-white, moderately lasting head that leaves behind unbelievable rings, streaks and webs of clumpy lace. Aroma is citrus and floral hops somewhat balanced with a nice sweet malt. Taste is citrus, sweet malts, caramel, pine and pepper (in that order). A nice dry finish, the taste is also well balanced.

Pint can poured into a snifter

Look:
Color is orange, like a muted shade of the beer's label. Cloudy. Big foamy head with great retention. Ton of sticky lacing.

Smell:
Floral. Oranges.

Taste:
Grapefruit. Slightly pungent. Bitter rind. Dank. Sweet pine.

Feel:
Seltzer crisp. Medium body.

Overall:
This is a fine beer. It is not the best American IPA I’ve had, but up there. The bitter citrus rind bite lingers a little longer than I’d like, especially now that I’ve tried “New England” IPAs like Toppling Goliath’s Pompeii. This is a solid 4. Depending on the competition, I'd be open to getting this again.

11/4/18 (Chicago): Canned 9/25/18, purchased at Bell's General Store earlier in the day, 6 pack cans $11.50 w/ tax. Can poured into pint glass. Slighty dark golden color, puffy head, thick lacing, solid carbonation. Citrus pine aroma, sharp pleasant, sweet. Very well balanced, citrus pine taste, dry hops, bitter nice. Dry creamy mouth feel, solid presence, smooth drinking. Overall excellent IPA, glad I stopped at Bell's Brewery for this one!

T---Juicy & fresh. Malt backbone nicely balances the grapefruit & pine. Very tasty.

F---Juicy & wet. A little bit of bitterness.

O---High quality beer from an excellent brewery. Will definitely get more.
