12 oz bottle thanks to Santa. Orange pour with a beautiful head. Faded to a decent lace-forming ring. Aromas were very floral, and very sweet citrus, sweet pineapple, some vanilla. Malt came through quite a bit more in the flavor. Citrus still in the hoppy finish, some nuttiness too. Very good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Clear orange with a snow white head. Fresh mandarin orange nose with a whisper of maraschinos. A little pina colada gets musty. Starts clean, light and floral. Under-ripe peach and golden raisins. Flavors a little thin. Develops mild bitterness with some citrus returning. Delicate but delicious.

An upper-end IPA in my book. Hops flavor is strong, but blends smoothly into the citrus/pine flavors and is smoothed out somewhat (not too much) by the woodsy/oaky malt undertones. Great finish - bitter, yet refreshing.

Bottle at Artís Tavern, Glen Arbor, Michigan. Pours with ambient waves of wheat yellow and nice lacing. Aroma is orange, pine, and sour citrus. Flavor is a nice mixture of sweet grapefruit and subtle pine undertones. Palate lays the flavors on thick. A very well-made IPA; balanced almost perfectly.

Had this one bottled at Lunar in Villa Park, Illinois. Deep golden pour with a light tan head, slightly cloudy, with a very pronounced hop nose, plenty of hops and roses in the taste. Excellent IPA.

Prototypical delicious IPA. Extremely floral nose, with grapefruit and clean pine. Ample malt to balance the hops and provide a great body. Caramelly hop mouthfeel and a satisfying intense finish.

To me the aroma is sorta pine-y, like Upper Michigan along the Two Hearted. Iíve tried at least 10 different great IPAís and this is my favorite of all. Two Hearted is complex, amazing, and a gracious example of really good beer to be simply enjoyed anywhere. Reminds me of camping in the U.P on the Two Heart.
