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.

L: Deep golden with a hazy, unfiltered quality. Relatively thin, pale head, 1 finger on average.
S: Pine, citrus, slightly soapy.
T: Crisp bitterness, refreshing and fairly meaty for a beer of this style. Pineapple and hops most apparent, with some orange in the background. Alcohol not evident.
F: Medium-thick body, not like most IPAs.
O: Very solid every-day IPA. Not overwhelming, not insanely boozy, and with a nice balanced feel and taste.

One of the most balanced and tasty IPA's I have had to date. There is a smoothness and balance here, that is usually not found in many IPA's. The sweet malt and hop bite complement each other amazingly. This is a strong contender for favorite IPA.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes

Finally got to taste this last night.

A deliciously different IPA. As soon as I tasted it I thought their was something different going on here. I suspect it's the Centennial hops that give it a more woodsy or piney flavor.

If you are put off by the citrusy West Coast IPA's I suggest you try this one.
Unfortunately I only had one bottle - now I need to go find more as this is fantastic.
