I hate burning oil to import products over long distances, but now that Two Hearted has come to Texas, you may truck it down from Michigan all day long with no protest from me. With an incredible creamy white head and lacework, balance
and mouthfeel to spare, a nose of citrus and just-enough pine, and the most enjoyable hop-soup palate for this type of IPA you'll ever find, Two Hearted is a Midwestern classic that you can't leave behind once you've left. I love this beer.

Bottle poured into a Bell's snifter

A: Pours golden orange amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and laces beautify.

S: Floral, citrus, very lemony, some pine, a bit grassy, some bready malt, and a little caramel sweetness.

T: Floral, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, spicy pine, bready malt, and caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: It's hard to compare an old school IPA like this to all the modern super hopped stuff, but it still holds its own. Really nice use of centennial hops.

Tried it for first time in Texas of all places. Always wanted to try it and it didn't disappoint. I call it classic representation of Midwest IPA. Floral, piney, slightly amber, great malt balance and incredibly long lasting finish. Loved it!

Not your beginners IPA. It looks amazing with a rich head and amber coloring. The smell is divine with very rich floral scents bursting out. The taste is very strong with intense citrus flavor. Pretty bitter but still immensely drinkable. Every beer drinker should have a 6 pack of this available at all times.

Such a classic. Always dependable, always solid. This IPA defines the type. A great blend of west coast/east coast. If you've never had it, get it.

When in doubt, I can always trust Two Hearted. I love this beer, near and dear to my heart. Americana and nostalgia in a bottle, one of the finest crafted IPAs ever. Never dissspoints and Im down with the cans.
