Bottled on 03/04/13

A: Golden-straw in color, slightly hazy in appearance. Cream colored head of varying bubble sizes. Fair amount of carbonation rising to the top.

S: Very floral, citrus peel, faint pineapple fruit.

T: An excellent blend of flavors - floral, grapefruit and orange peel, orange fruit, mellow pineapple, earthy, faint yeast. Soft bitterness and a highly balancing biscuit and dough pale malt presence.

M: Pretty light, but not watery. Being a little on the thin side makes it go down very easy, so I don't have a problem with it, I would just typically expect a bit more body from a beer of this ABV.

O: A very good IPA that I think has reigned supreme in Michigan for a long time, although I think it has been passed in recently by a number of offerings from Short's. For the price though, Two Hearted is damn tough to beat. I will also add that I think Two Hearted on-tap beats it from the bottle by a noticeable margin.
Note: Bottle date does not match up with the review date because this full review is overriding a previous 'Had' rating.

Love this beer. Smooth, crisp tasting beer with an outstanding color. Drink it from a very nice pilsner. A real treat. Most of our friends and relatives are crazy for this beer. It is one of my favorites. The smell is strong and powerful and the taste is excellent. 9-6-2014 This beer gets better every time I drink it. It is my favorite

Reviewed from notes.

A - Slightly hazy copper color with bright white 1 finger head. Decent lacing.

S - Very herbal aroma, some grainy malt

T - Herbal hops up front, peach and orange fruity notes mid-sip, and a bready finish. Warming alcohol. Malt profile reminds me of a Pilsner.

M - Light and fairly dry.

O - Not as clean and crisp as I like my IPAs. Still refreshing. Decent, but I probably wouldn't get this again as there are lots of better options out there IMO.
