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.

One of my favorite ipas, first enjoyed in North Carolina in Avon at the outer banks. Smell is amazing with great hop notes and rich flavor. Excellent body and head retention, beautiful lacing in every glass!

Hands down the best, in my opinion. High ABV but doesn't taste like it; not over powering. Smooth as silk. I could drink these all the time.

I’m somewhat new to craft beer, and this is one of the first IPA’s I truly enjoyed. Wasn’t too hoppy or bitter, and has a at citrus taste to it

I usually have to fight the hops when it comes to IPAs, but this beer has a fantastic malt profile that really brings a solid balance. This citrus doesn't taste artificial whatsoever, which I've found to be unfortunately prevalent with ales of this nature. The alcohol content actually feels like a contributing ingredient rather than an obligatory addition. Not to mention, the smell is phenomenal. My only gripe is that the mouth feel is a bit syrupy and doesn't necessarily meld well with the other characteristics. Regardless, this it perfect outlier to throw into a session.

Pours a medium amber color with some haze. Head is off white with excellent retention and great lacing. Very little carbonation is visible.
The nose is hoppy and fruity. Lots of citrus and just a bit of pine bitterness.
Excellent balance between the malts and hops. Sweet type caramel up front then comes in with some tropical hops bitterness.
Mouth feel is light, smooth and refreshing. Carbonation is crisp.

Like a less complex Anchor Steam but is not a slight - this is an excellent lightly hopped beer.
