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.

omhper (19374) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2003 Bottled. Cloudy orange with creamy head. Citrusy nose. Sweet and medium bodied with a relatively hoppy grapefruity finish. The mouthfeel is light and sparkling.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 2002 bottle. Dark Brownish Red ale. This was interesting. For some reason I didnt care for the mixture of hops in this one. Needs something more. If ever there was a case of a too-hoppy-IPA this might be it. Though, I dont mind Sierra Nevada’s PA or Ipswich’s Ipa. I suppose I shall have to buy this beer and review it.Rerate. Not much changed from first impression. The heavy hops flavor, with the additional dry hopping creates a tough act to balance, and the pale crystal malt does not get the job done. Sure, it tastes wonderfully of hops and is fresh and clean, but there just is not enough good malt flavoring. Points for a good yeasty flavor though, dont get that often in IPAs. Aroma is very dry, some yeast, some earthy hops. 2003 FRESH bottle. Ok, well it looks like I got my first case of bells gone bad in the previous ratings. Guess those 2002 bottles had sat out too long. These new bottles were much better. Gone is the astringent, stale taste. Much better balance than I remember, but there is a weird alcohol flavor in the body that is quite prevalent on the finish. Not pleasant at all. I just dont seem to get along with this beer.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Dark golden body - lasting, big bubbled head. Very dry like champagne. Smells somewhat sweet and hoppy. The flavor is robustly hoppy, but not too bitter at all. A very smooth finish, with some vanilla notes. Alcohol is definetly present.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2003 One of the best IPA's I've had in recent memory. Cloudy copper ale with nice fluffy head, which is the sign of great quality ales. Aroma is superb, piney and citrusy. Has it's own uniqueness to it and different from other great IPA's. I smell a little cedar as another reviewer points out. Nice lacing. Very crisp and carbonation is solid. I only wish I could buy these locally. Would be a regular for me.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2003
Cloudy golden color, high carbonation, small but creamy head - citrus and hops in the aroma in abundance - flavor is very woody, with heaping helpings of various hop varieties that coat the tongue much in the way malts would do in a sweeter beer (it's an odd sensation, but enjoyable) - great hop finish, not overly bitter, with some hints of cedar - this is an excellent IPA

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 Strong cedary, piney, grapefruity, citrusy nose, no doubt due to the hops. Smooth sweetish maltyness. Sharp bitterness at the end, with some saltyness and some alcohol noticed, lingering bitterness. Grapefruity and a bit woody?. I don't know, to me this wasn't very exciting, a bit one dimensional, even though it had quite a lot of flavour, i found it pretty easy to pick apart. Still, quite alright. (Re- rate, better than i remembered it, so i marked it up a bit- thanks to mwsf)

dins (266) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2003
Coppery with great big head. Well hopped, touch of malt, and a crisp, clean finish.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2006 Nice dark golden color. Fluffy white head. Great earthy and citric hop aroma and appropriate flavor. Good balance from the candy sweet malt. More bitterness than malt flavor as expected. Overall a great beer.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2003 Very hoppy aroma. Cloudy golden in color. bitter feel on palate. Thick creamy head that lasts.Not as much hoppiness like some ipa's. A excellent belle's product.

ElGaucho (2206) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 4/02/04: Re-Rate. Almost a year later and on tap instead of teh bottle, my feelings regarding the Two Hearted are virtually unchanged. Independently, I gave the draught version a 17 overall and the Flavor an 8 instead of a 9. Very piney and hops up nicely as it warms. A nice enjoyable beer! 4/27/03: Very hoppy aroma, but on the dry side. Large, foamy, off-white head; somewhat rocky. Amber, hazy color. Decent lace. Hoppy, sweet and alcholic flavor; full-bodied and very tasty. Well balanced with malt notes evident.
