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.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 This beer has more than 1000 ratings, yet I lived in the States for 30 years without coming across it. Now I live in Europe and had to get one through a trade (thanks, turdferguson). Appropriately, I drank it while watching "American Beer" for the first time. Pretty, hazy and sunshiny yellow-gold with frothy white head that lasted. Big, fresh hoppy aroma with citrus and floral notes. Tangy and bitter flavor with notes of lemon and cherry wood. Dry finish, mildly bitter aftertaste. Strikes me as a beer interesting enough to sip on a cold day, yet refreshing enough to glug a couple after mowing the lawn. Tasty and versatile and excellent.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draft at Union Street Public House-Alexandria VA. Poured dark gold and hazy with a small, thick head. Aromas of hops-fragrant but not overwhelming. Tastes of hops but balanced enough to drink several. Very smooth palate and easy going down the throat. Very well done and will buy this when available.

Arayaga2 (2122) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Nice hazy orange with quick fading white head. Aroma is piny with grapefruit. Taste is same, only thinly so, and disappointing and weak. Mouthfeel is rather fizzy and detracts from hop taste. Not sure what all the raving is about. $3/12oz

Excellent IPA, although not hoppy as insanity or anything. Wicked sick label, eh? I wonder what the fish would think you if you forced him to swim in a vat of Two Hearted Ale. He’d probably think, "Nobody’s ever died like I’m about to die within 72 hours."

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Pours a hazy copper color with monstrous lacing, carbonation and head. Aroma is very hoppy. Taste is hoppy as well but it finishes really smooth with little aftertaste which is surprising for an IPA. Good brew!

[386-20070630] Tap @ Winking Lizard (Cleveland, OH). Hoppy citrus grapefruit aroma. Clear, orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head and some lacing. Flavour introduces more hoppy citrus, though less grapefruit and more naval orange. Medium body. Quite nice.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 pours a somewhat cloudy dark yellow gold with a 1.5 finger fluffy white head. aroma is a powerful hop aroma with some malt and grapefruit, a touch of melon, and a touch of orange characteristics. has a medium to full body with good lacing and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but stronger. has a nice smooth dry hop aftertaste and a touch of pine. the hops really do linger a bit afterwards and feels a little slick in the mouth. an AWSOME ipa one of the best!! i would pick this up by the case along with three floyds alpha king. hopefully bells comes back to Illinois very very soon!!! re-rate awsome in a mini keg!!
