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.

Dogbrick (9118) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2006
12 oz bottle. Cloudy golden-orange beer topped with 1" of white foam. Hop aroma just spills out of this brew, big sweet orange/pine aroma, a little bit cedary and fruity as well. Almost tropical, but still balanced by some resiny character. Beneath the bright, sweet hop aroma is an equally pleasant slightly earthy sweet malt character. With all of that delicious aroma, youíd think the flavour couldnít match it, but it does. Sweet pale malt with just a kiss of caramel and bready flavours topped with strong sweet piny and grapefruity hops. Hops arenít really unusual in their profile but the execution is impeccable. Lingering bitterness. Very tasty brew.

I havenít had this in a while, it was the first IPA I really loved. It is nice and citrusy with a medium to low bitterness.

Meilby (8674) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle 355ml @ Hotel Room, Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, grape, floral and hint of pine. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long fruity, slightly dry and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

shrubber85 (8582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bottle. Lime, tangerine, and pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-amber with moderate head and nice lacing. Sligntly sweet tangerine flavor quickly followed by moderate pine hops. Strange finish - after swallowing get a watery slightly metallic taste with pine hops returning a few seconds later. Nice that its flavor isnít the typical orange grapefruit.

mcberko (8545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2011
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of potent grapefruit, piney hops and citrus, balanced by caramel malt. Flavour is heavy on the piney hops, grapefruit and citrus, with just enough caramel malt. Most wonderful IPA.

3fourths (8481) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Clear light orange with a tall soapy white head. Crisp and sharp hop aroma of peaches, scotch and musty pine. Very crisp and light while maintaining an even hop bitterness. Has a nice sweet wood and peach flavor.

Scopey (8397) - 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 wasnít blown away by this, but still itís a solid, enjoyable IPA.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Hop phantoms had invaded my tongue and declared it a ghost palate...I was desperately ņ la Recherche du Houblon Perdu...Remembrances of a real IPA were slowly drifting away...And my tastebuds, naively still open, were about to lose faith...Until (perchance!) a horde of Michigan soldier bees commenced the emergency pollenization of my forlorn tongue...Immediatly, hop vines started to thrive, citrus fruit started to multiply and firs grew bigger and firmer...A smell of lush jungle vegetation and toasted cereals started to emanate from my still reeling palate...Two Hearted Ale is always a quenching reawakening...

Pours deep straw colored. 5 for appearance, definitely. Excellent head and lacing. Super hoppy, citrusy, floral, fruity aroma. 10 for aroma. Tastes very hoppy, with nice malt base. Finishes very smooth, with hints of hops, malt, citrus, and perfumy florals, with some Belgian white alishness and sweet candi sugar and fine chardonnay qualities. Super complex. Great beer. Bells is in my top 10 brewers of all time. My second 5.0 rating. Perhaps I put too much emphasis on complexity, but I cannot deduct any points on this one. Awesome!!
