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 had this before but after Bell’s became available in Texas, this has become my favorite IPA. Consistent, great hop aroma. Checks all the boxes you want in an IPA.

Easily on my “Island Beer” list if I could only drink 5 beers for the rest of my life.

A very drinkable American IPA. The flavor is perfectly balanced and opens flavorful without being aggressive. The aftertaste is smooth and lightly bitter encouraging a continued enjoyment. I believe this to be a better beer than most of the rankings.

Huge fan of this beer. Overall, everything about it is great. From the look, to the smell, to the taste, it is one of my personal favorites. Not to mention Bells is a great brewery overall. For sure in my top 10 favorites. A great balance of bitterness and "fruityness" that really fits the mood from just hanging out on the porch to watching a good band perform. Nothing overpowering, yet incredibly full flavored.

12-oz. bottle poured into a 16-oz. mug. A moderate pour creates a finger sized frothy white head which quickly fades to a ring. Lots of lacing.
Golden amber slightly cloudy, appears yellow in front of light.
Smell features piney hops and abundant malt.
Taste follows; semi-dry and bitter at first with a malty semi sweet middle and apricot flavor. The finish is spicy and dry with a lingering hop bite. Alcohol is noticeable and peppery.
Medium-light body with low carbonation, even throughout the palate.
Malty, spicy and well hopped, a smooth drink despite the spice.
