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.

12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Half a finger of foamy white head quickly settles to a ring and thin center layer over hazy copper liquid. Dots of lace stick to the glass. Aroma is floral hops, caramel malt, citrus hop, slight tropical fruit. Taste is hop forward with grapefruit peel, floral, and earthy pine bitterness. Some biscuit malt sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, bitter drying finish.

Pours a light orangey color, clear, topped with a fine white frothy head. There is a strong and plesant citrusy hops aroma, my favourite. The taste starts easy, followed by a fairly strong bitterness in the finish. Not too strong, but still kicks nicely. Drinkable and enjoyable.

Had this beer in a bottle. Copper yellow color with lots of head. Clean, light citrus aroma. Nice hoppy taste with light citrus taste. No aftertaste. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DATE REVIEWED: August 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... OCCASION: Happy 38th birthday, myself--with the fam, Jer and Matt...APPEARANCE: orange amber body; filmy and hazy; thick, white three-finger head; lacing extends upward and thickly spreads across the glass--a great start... AROMA: fruity and hoppy; apple and citrus first; some bubblegum yeasts too; lastly, some metallic suggestions... PALATE: fantastic, medium-bodied and arresting--effervescent and alive; an IPA to sip and simmer with--little suggestion of alcohol, but definitely weightier than a pint glass... TASTE: balanced caramel malts underpin a hop festival of Noble and citrus--tangy tangerine and teeth-rattling pine resin, a combo that shakes and soothes in unison--this is the IPA the beer folk warn us about...OVERALL: as IPAs go, a mecca of sorts--the hype is to be believed--and although there are many that rival Two Hearted, it is a beer I will seek out again, even if it’s only found in a case at a PSU distributor, as this was; the name itself evokes that "slow" short story that nonetheless reveals so much of man’s plight and hope, and this is a worthwhile stab at perfection....

This is my IPA of choice. Lightly carbonated, medium-sized head. The floral hops give this beer a superbly balanced taste, and are even more pleasant as your drink warms a bit. The finish is crisp.

Transfer from BA review on 9-10-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a light amber color with a tiny white head. The head faded quite fast to leave only a very small amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is very light and consists of some sweet caramel, bread, lighter fruit smells and a citrus hop smell. Taste – The taste begins on the drier side and is of a light roasted malt with a decent presence of a an citrus hop bitterness. In the middle it sweetness slightly with some flavors of caramel and light fruit coming to the tongue. These flavors are rather short lived however and fade toward the end, where a more sharp bitter earthy and citrus nature come to the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly above higher than average side in terms of creaminess with a medium level of carbonation. Good for the hop flavors as well as for the more bitter and sharp hop flavors. Overall – Not much sweetness here but very nice and dry. A flavorful and tasty drier IPA with a nice sharp hop and malty base.
