12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick fluffy off white head. The aroma is very floral and grapefruit. The flavor is once again full of grapefruit and some breadiness.

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!
