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.

Look: Beautiful color, clear, great lacing
Smell: Big nose of Centennial, rich smells
Taste: Great citrusy notes
Feel: Nice carbonation from bottle conditioning. Probably the best feature as it compliments the hops so well.

Overall: One of my perennial favorites. So good when its so fresh.

I agree with much of the citrus and floral attributes given, however, I was put off by over carbonation and a strange metallic after taste...

Clear, amber colored beer with a two finger high head. Lacing stays on the glass.

Nose: Hops, citrus, honey and pine.
Taste: Orange, pineapple and grass.
Body: Light, smooth body. A little bitterness and medium carbonation

I really can't understand the hype about this beer. I my opinion it is highly overrated on ratebeer and beeradvocate.
Maby it is because the bottle I got my hands on at Total Wine & More is not fresh?
This one was bottled on december 1 - 2014 * Two and a half months ago.

Don't have the beer in front of me for a review, but it is one of the best American IPAs I've tried.
