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.

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.

Had this on tap at Detroit airport. Nice medium Amber with a 1-finger creamy head. Good retention with thick persistent lacing. Nice piney, citrusy aroma. Good maltiness and balance in the mouthfeel. Overall very nice.

12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Half a finger of foamy white head quickly settles to a ring and thin center layer over hazy copper liquid. Dots of lace stick to the glass. Aroma is floral hops, caramel malt, citrus hop, slight tropical fruit. Taste is hop forward with grapefruit peel, floral, and earthy pine bitterness. Some biscuit malt sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, bitter drying finish.

A: Yellow orange hue with good lacing that fades within a few minutes.

S: Tangy, estery, and slightly lemony. McLovin' would agree it smells like "hops."

T&M: Good body. Straw like, and grassy. Crisp yet creamy. Bitter hops at the finish.

O: An OG to the style. A brewery that helped usher me into what craft beer is and means.
