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.

A: This beer pours a nice golden orange body with a thick head that slowly fades and leaves a lot of lace on the glass.

S: There are a nice strong hop smell with a some spice and a strong floral smell. There is also a good amount of sweetness from the malt.

T: Just like the smell, I am getting a strong hop flavor that is floral and a little fruity. There is also a sweetness from the malt that linger for a long time.

M: There is a nice full body and has a bit of crispness on the back of the throat.

O: This is a fantastic beer! This is the definition of a fantastic IPA.

A-Poured into a pint glass. Nice two finger head that dissipates rapidly. Has a cloudy light copper color. Does have some nice lacing that forms after I take a few drinks. Nothing extra ordinary here.

S-Nothing exciting here. I get a few notes of citrus, but that's about it.

T-I get a few of the "floral Hop" flavors that the bottle talks about, but that's about it. Very light on the citrus flavors. I guess I was hoping for more of a in your face IPA, or maybe that's what I prefer.

M-Very crisp and smooth. A very easy to drink IPA.

O-I nice beer. For me this is a good solid IPA. There was nothing that stood out to me appearance, smell, or taste wise. Maybe I will pick up on some things after I drink another 6 pack. Just a nice solid IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. PKGD 09/18/12.

A: Pours a hazy golden straw with a 2 finger dense white head. Some nice lacing as it fades away to a covering. Some visible floaties in the body of this beer, tough to see any carbonation. Good lacing on the glass.

S: Very fruity hop. Pineapple and citrus all over. A nice herbal skunkiness A nice sweetness to this as well. Very authentic whole hop aroma.

T: Well balanced hopiness, earthy and fruity with a malt backing. Isn't overpowering hop yet certainly enough to satisfy a hophead. Nice freshness to it.

M: Medium bodied with a nectar like quality. Doesn't leave any unwanted resins. Very drinkable esp considering the ABV.

Overall simply an amazing IPA. Kills most in its style. Bell's knows best how to make incredible IPAs. A must try.
