COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

this was awesome. the malts and hops are well balanced. very east coast IPA feel to it. bitter finish but nice and creamy to start with. the orange, lemon and pine aromas and flavors work themselves in with the hops. excellent.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 rerate, batch 8359. God, this stuff is good when its fresh! Floral, bitter, with an almost candy like sweetness, but balances out before it goes overboard. It leaves you with a long wonderfully bitter aftertaste, and you just cant wait to have another swig. I had to re-rate this, only because i love it so damn much.

Smell is of piney hops. The color is amber. The head is a nice light white. The taste is full with a nice citrus hop cut. It is a classic IPA.

shadey (1909) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Clear gold color with a very large rocky white head. Lots of lacing. Hoppy full aroma with a mildly hoppy flavor. I donít know why this is so highly rated. Seemed pretty standard to me. 6/5/6/3/16

RERATE: Deep golden pour with a nice white fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts with a nice dose of flowery hops. I’m still less than impressed with this beer. It’s obviously quality, but I’m not sure what makes it stand out from all the other quality IPAs out there? 6/3/6/3/17

Nice strong aroma with a taste of citrus and strong hops. Subtle malt aftertaste prevents it from being overhopped. This is a beer Iím gonna wish I could get my hands on more often.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2006 Rerate: Had this on tap at the Fiddlerís Hearth. Man it was truly fantastic. Fresh aroma and flavor. Really hit the spot. Two Hearted Ale has fine balance all the way through. In the aroma, the Centennial hops and sweet malt intertwine great. The bitterness is kept in check with a good malt back bone. It poured a hazy yellow-orange and a small off white head. The medium body makes this beer a staple beer in most households.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Thanks to Pailhead for this one. Massive citrus/hop aroma. Very aromatic beer. Cloudy/yellow/gold with a two finger thick head. Surprisingly light though still very citrusy and hop flavored. A lot of grapefruit rind in the finish. An excellent maxing and relaxing brew that lives up to its rating.

Big creamy head. Look orange but has a hint of grapefruit taste. Solid IPA with the usual hops but more flavor and complexity than most.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Bottle. Bright orange amber, medium fluffy head. Lots of hops in the aroma (cascade), grapefruit, some earth. Sticky pine medium body, west coast all the way. Harsh carbonation really bothered me in this one, adds to the bitterness. There are better IPAs.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 One Iíve had many times, this time in a bad from a bottle, poured into a glass. Pale amber with a nice head. One of the more ridiculously hoppy IPAs Iíve run across. Sometimes more piney, sometimes more floral. The malts underneath are especially pleasant, sweet, and smooth, but they are overpowered a bit. Not my favorite IPA, but close. Rerate note! If you can find Cask Aged Two Hearted (called Hand Pulled at the Berkley Front in Berkley, MIchigan) GET IT! Itís very different from the regular, smooth and aromatic in a way that far exceeds the regular! I would rate it a 4.4 at least!
