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.

I usually have to fight the hops when it comes to IPAs, but this beer has a fantastic malt profile that really brings a solid balance. This citrus doesn't taste artificial whatsoever, which I've found to be unfortunately prevalent with ales of this nature. The alcohol content actually feels like a contributing ingredient rather than an obligatory addition. Not to mention, the smell is phenomenal. My only gripe is that the mouth feel is a bit syrupy and doesn't necessarily meld well with the other characteristics. Regardless, this it perfect outlier to throw into a session.

Pours a medium amber color with some haze. Head is off white with excellent retention and great lacing. Very little carbonation is visible.
The nose is hoppy and fruity. Lots of citrus and just a bit of pine bitterness.
Excellent balance between the malts and hops. Sweet type caramel up front then comes in with some tropical hops bitterness.
Mouth feel is light, smooth and refreshing. Carbonation is crisp.

Like a less complex Anchor Steam but is not a slight - this is an excellent lightly hopped beer.

What a perfectly balanced APA!!! This beer has one of the best mouth feels I have ever experienced in an IPA/APA. Not too bitter, but not too malty either. Incredible that this is my first time trying it when it's in every store I frequent. This will become a frequent resident in my fridge rotation. If you get the opportunity, go for it with this awesome brew!

Doesn’t get any better then this! Hands down my go to IPA when I’m lucky enough to find it in Denver or friends bring it back from the Midwest. Don’t hesitate if you can find it, you can’t go wrong. Cheers.
