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.

I love single hopped ales. Nowhere to hide. You have to use your skills to manipulate the hopp in order to express it in the end product. They do a very good job. The smell is amazing! Great job Bell's.

Not as hop-strong as most IPAs...definite citrus and light grapefruit, but very smooth and balanced...doesnt beat you over the head with the hops but gives just enough sharp bitterness

Appearance: Kind of a tint of hazy orange/yellow.

Aroma: The usual floral/hop mix.

Taste: Easy to drink with a mixture of hops and a bit of malty-creaminess.

Overall: I enjoyed this, but I have been spoiled lately drinking a ton of heady topper and Lawson's. As a single IPA, this is decent. But to me, it lacks that fruit bomb character that I enjoy. I guess I just enjoy DIPA's more. A decent IPA, but there are better American IPA's out there like Lagunita's Sculpin, Dogfish Head 90 minute, etc. Cheers!

This one is not underrated for good reason. Great taste at a very reasonable price. Bell's has world class beer and this one is right at the top!

Golden clear. Fresh hop aroma, but doesn't kick your face in. Fruity, citrus, slight pine and creamy. A great balanced IPA.

A - Pours to a murky orange gold. Generates a nice finger of white soapy head, lots of little carbonation bubbles streaming up to the top, whispy lacing.
S - Oranges, tangerine, light hops and even lighter slight caramel. Very sweet, smells like an orange soda in the glass. Very appetizing aroma.
T - Not nearly as sweet as the aroma, the orange and tangerine are upfront but very mild and not very sweet, the hops come in back, not very bitter or strong, there is actually a strong "beery" taste to this, such as a pilsner or a light pale ale. Makes for a smooth and easy drinking, extremely sessionable beer, as well as an easy introduction to IPAs for domestic drinkers, but it isn't an over the top IPA for me.
O - A good beer, not great, but good, could use a little more of everything, too light. More sweetness, more bitterness, I've had pale ales more bitter than this. But it is, to be sure, a GOOD beer.
V - Good value, decent price and comes in a six pack!

Quite possibly my favorite beer ever and I'm not even an IPA person. Perfectly balanced. Beautiful aroma. Not too hoppy.

Very hoppy. Easy to drink but still strong. Very good choice from double door
