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.

Pours hazy gold with a 1 finger head. Nose is of rasins and spruce and then spruce and raisins .... and hops. Taste is a fruity (almost grapefruit but not quite) folowed malty sweetness and then by hoppy bitterness. I am not a pale ale guy but I can appreciate the work that went into this. It is extremely well thought out in it’s complexities. It is hard for me to get over the spruce nose when I take a sip. That being said, if you are of the IPA loving community, this beer would be the cat’s ass.

Bottle from batch 8271, bought @ Knightly Spirits in Orlando and brought back to UK by good friend. Poured a lovely golden colour, with a good head and lively body. Lovely hoppy taste with a touch of sweetness. Not quite as ’ in your face’ as some of the very heavily hopped USA beers I’ve tasted but none the worse for that. An excellent beer.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 Poured a bright orange with a dense 2-finger foamy head that lingered for ages and left very good lacing. The slightest swirl sends the head back up to a finger. Nice. The fruits leapt out of the bottle at me - oranges, grapefruits, lemons, etc. A slight piny, grassy scent could be detected under the floral fruits, as well as a slightly sweet malt base. Clean, crisp taste that was dominated by the floral and citrus side of things. Quite a zing on the taste buds. I caught a little bit of the malt in the background, but not much. Zesty. Medium bodied with a decent clean finish with only the slightest bitterness in the aftertaste. This is a great example of an IPA, though it was probably a litle bit on the fruity side to be in my top few IPAs. Nonetheless, a well crafted brew from Bells.

Love this one. I got a mixed 6 and liked third coast ale, a similar one, even better.

Strykzone (6719) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2008
A nice looking beer with an amber orange hue. Some flourescence. Two finger tan head with good retention. Pine and grapefruit aroma. Very well hopped with grapefruit dominant. Malt is a distant second. As it warms some peppery spice shows up. Very nice feel. It is creamy, smooth and fizzy. Bitter, too. Quite good but a 99%?

Bottle. Actually a bit disappointing as I typically love Bell’s beers and had heard many great things regarding Two Hearted. Large and frothy head with a yellow color. Aromas of herbs, pine, and grapefruit. Moderately bitter with a short duration of flavor.

On tap at Redlight. Has a nice amber color. Really sweet fruity, flowery smell. Malty, big and hoppy. Nice burn at the end.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Draught @ Cole’s. Clear golden with lots of lacing. Mellow hoppy aroma. Very leafy but not a lot of pine. Some citrus rind. Nice level of carbonation. Super dry and really mellow finish. Super smooth with an exceptionally delicious hop kiss. Really rindy. My kind of IPA.

On tap at OTH. Pours hazy blonde, thick white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and floral. Taste, hoppy with nice grapefruit / citrus notes. Light bitter finish, but overall remains a lot sweeter than the West coast ipa’s.
