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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Super hazy orange hue with an off-white head.

Aroma: Orange, citrus, caramel malt.

Taste: Big malt bomb but with enough hop assertiveness to stay within the style. The hop flavor is a mix of watery orange, a hint of grapefruit, and pine. It imparts a moderate bitterness upfront that fades to a slow burn in the aftertaste. Very palatable. Dry finish. It is as robust as the 7% ABV suggests.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Easy drinkability but not quite a 'juicy' IPA.

Final Thoughts: I've had this one before and it's never blown me away like its collective rating would suggest. It's simply a good American IPA. Would I drink it again? Only if it's the only IPA option.

Had this beer at Tallahassee brew-fest

A lot of people like to glorify bells, and proclaim this to be "the best ever" for IPA's, and I don't like to buy into the hype

I also do not like IPA's, so I'm the first to rip them apart, but I just cant bring myelf to hat this beer
Its just too good, and thats coming for a malt loving beer snob like myself

The hops character does not grate on your taste buds like so many other IPA's, and its mouthfeal/body reflects its hopp bitterness perfectly

If you see it, get it. Its a great IPA, and although its not my favorite, I feel like its a a very well made brew that deserves the reputation it has.
