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.

Bottle. [Thanks to my Secret Santa]
Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a smallish bubbly/creamy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is brilliant, lots of hops. Lemons, grapefruit, pine, lavender, flowers and a little crystal-maltiness behind it. Low carbonation. Flavour is mildly bitter at first, then expands with a well-balanced malty base of sweetness, then finishes medium dry with a good powerful hop addition. Grapefruit hops are most apparent, so are lemony and grassy hops.

BeerandBlues2 (11964) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 11, 2006
12-oz. bottle, Batch 7237 from tjthresh. Pours a slightly cloudy bronze, brass with a medium frothy white head, diminishes somewhat to a patchy film, some lacing. Aroma is very fragrant floral and citrus hops, perfumey, caramel malt (meal, grain, straw), slightly toasted, yeast (dough). Moderately bitter and medium acidity, tart hop rind, pine juice, malty balanced flavor with a hint of oranges. Medium bodied, fizzy and dry palate.

Scopey (11949) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Tap at Abraxas Lounge, Miami. It pours golden yellow, with a 1cm white head. The nose is floral, fresh pine and grapefruit. The taste is lemon, lime, grapefruit, pine, resin, floral, some underlying sweetness and grass, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Crisp and easy drinking. I wasn’t blown away by this, but still it’s a solid, enjoyable IPA.

Bov (11737) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 16, 2009
courtesy of Chris Beers - pours a cloudy orange colour under a huge foamy white head; fairly fruity hoppy nose (mango and apricots) with notes of fresh cream; quite soft mouthfeel and full-bodied; a robust but never aggressive bitterness takes control of the taste; moderately dry bitter and long fruity finish - balanced and robust; very well-made

DSG (11353) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 5, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Re-rate 10/19/08:Bottle. Batch 8677. Thanks a lot for this bottle archmik! Clear, maybe very slightly hazy, deep golden color. Aroma has quite a bit of floral hops with some citrus, but also a nice malty tone with caramel and some cookie notes. A sweetish flavor at first with some malt, continues hoppy and bitter with some grapefruit and with caramel lingering in the background. Medium-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. A very good balanced IPA. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8

Bottle. Hazy orange with a medium white head. Flowery, citrusy, hoppy nose. Flavor starts with sweetish malts, then comes some nice citric hoppiness. A bitter finish with some grapefruit notes. Medium-bodied with a nice mouthfeel. Very good stuff! 8/3/8//16=3.9

Dogbrick (11164) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 Rerate 10/21/03: After getting a sixer of Two Hearted this year, I have to bump the score up. This really is a top of the line IPA. 09/29/02 (3.8):There's hops it that there beer! This was a 'guest tap' at Barley's brewpub here in Columbus, and although I usually find it wrong to try beers outside of the brewpub where I am drinking, I'm glad I made an exception here. Cloudy orange color with a thin head. Strong hoppy, floral aroma. Hops dominate the flavor as well, bordering on the extreme. This beer will definitely keep your attention. Take a whiff of one of these during a boring meeting and you'll wake right up. You'll probably get fired but you'll be awake.
