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.

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

Blue Ridge Grill (Broadlands, VA) - draft in pint glass
A - Golden copper, 1/2 inch foamy/creamy head that lasted to the end; great lacing
S - not too muuch here, distant fruit
T - Strong, but not overpowering hop, mild bitter, secondary fruit and orange citrus
F - Nice body and just the right level of carbonation
O - Not an IPA fan, or at least I haven't been, but they are slowly growing on me; bottom line is that I liked this beer, easy to drink, healthy flavors, good balance, moderate complexity
