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.

12 oz bottle. Pours yellow clear with big head that fades before you know it. Nice hops and somewhat rich malts (nutty flavor). Finish is simple with little to no aftertaste. Very easy drinkable beer malts does not over power this above avg beer. And sweetness is very low key(which i like)

Pours from the bottle with a reddish copper color and a light tan head that stays with the beer nicely. The aroma is hops, the first flavor across the lips is hops, the finish is hops. But I do not feel like I’ve been smacked in the face with branch of hops. The malts and carbination are there, but just enough to make overall experience very enjoyable.

A 6 pack purchased at From the Vine. This is a spectacular IPA. Citrus and hops rise out of glass as soon as you start to pour. I taste orange and pine. A great example of the styoe.

Aroma is orange blossom and treated lumber.Foggy orange-amber color with lots of fine particles. The big foamy head left wet lace in the glass but it all dissipates rather quickly. Fruity orange and peach flavor. Wet palate and superdry chalky bitter finish.

FOAMer (45) - Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Deep golden color, vey clear fro the bottle. Very nice off-white to white head. Lite malt aroma with stong hop aromas. Earthy to grassy in aromas no to very little yeast aromas. Strong hop bitterness with malt just to balance.

Great IPA. Pours dark golden color and aroma is amazing. Floral, citrus. Sweet malt taste perfectly balanced by substantial hoppy bitterness and spicyness.

Pours tan-orange w/ light-tan head. Bitter-sweet-tart flavor. Lots of hops and malt. Powerful flavor abounds. Creamy finish. Boquet is floral. Glad my sis left half a 6-pack in the fridge for us last wknd. YES!

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 Update: 2003-04 versions sampled in Oct, Nov '03 were firm in character but bland and totally lacking in the Two Hearted "brightness." Dec '03 versions sampled so far are much better and are beginning to approach the fantastic 2001-02 versions. The rocky, white lace left after an exhuberent pour is starting to come back. The awesome smell is evident after cracking the bottle, but still not quite as strong in the glass. I have only one question... who is the idiot that keeps this from being a year round brew? .............................................. Prior Review: I was pleasantly surprised when I opened a bottle of this very plainly marked beer. It has a huge aroma and is somewhat overwhelming at first. Things settle down quickly though as the brew reveals itself to be one of the top IPA's around. It's a unique and well thought out beer. Consider yourself lucky if you actually find a six pack on the shelf. The 2001-02 version definitely had more personality than the 2002-03 version. I hope it's simply a case of Bell's notorious quality contol and not a fundamental "blanding-out" of the recipe.
