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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Looks like I was pouring an apricot into the bottle with a slight head that is gone rather quickly.

S - Has a nice floral/critrus aroma that is easy to smell.

T - Has a very pleasing flavor that is not overbearing and it tastes pretty much like it smells. It has nice combination of citrus/floral and malt.

M - You can put quite a few of these back in one sitting. Its mildly carbonated, you can't taste the alcohol and the body is not very big.

O -This is a very good IPA with a nice blend of flavors and a smooth taste. This is one that you can enjoy on a nice hot day that will hit the spot so make sure you have a few more cold ones.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

A - Light copper, pours a hazy with effervescence. Nice full head; wee bit of lacing.

S - Abundantly floral, with pine, grass, overtone of grapefruit. ROunded out with a perfect sour-sweet malt. Same profile as plenty of IPAs, but this smells assuredly balanced.

T - Big citric bitter burst up front. Tapers off fine into a good bready-English malt palate. Vibrant and flavorful, but still completely refreshing. A nice sweet/bitter balance that yields notes of blossoms, cinnamon and orange as it warms a bit.

M - More full and sticky than I'd expect, given how drinkable it is.

O - Really blown away by this. I cannot count how many IPA's I've had in my life, but finally trying the Two-Hearted Ale I see why it's such a mainstay of the Midwest. This one is magnificent.

A - A hazy light orange. Almost looks like a DIPA/IIPA.

S - A mix of floral hops, malt, and sweetness.

T - A superb balance of everything that you get from the smell. Hops up front, followed by a nice maltiness.

M - Medium body.

O - An outstanding IPA that is highly drinkable/sessionable.This is one beer that every BA should try, especially those that are hopheads. Buy it by the case!
