Draft. Pours golden with small white head. Floral piney aromas. Lost of hop flavor but not overwhelming. There is a good malt balance in this beer. Finishes with lingering floral hop flavors. Very good beer.

This beer pours coppery with an inch of foam. The aroma is quite hoppy, which smells yummy! The flavor is dominated by hops, but a great malty finish. This beer is well balanced. The body is medium with medium carbonation. This is a great beer and will remain in my drinking rotation!!! PaperKnife (82) - - DEC 30, 2011
Draft. Bright golden color, thin lacy white head. Sweet, citrusy and pine aroma, cereal and malty as it warms. Dry, cereal, grapefruit, lemon, peppery. Alcohol becomes more apparent as it warms. UnionBeerCzar (82) - Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2012
22 is my lucky number and this is my lucky 22nd rating! I saved this beer for it because it is my favorite beer of all time and the beer that broke me into craft beer. I remember the first time I had a lady, the first time I met Mary Jane, and the first time I had a Two Hearted. I was headed on a trip to the west side of the mitten with a lady to do some camping many years ago and on a whim (maybe it was the hemingway-esque line) I picked up a sixer of this brew. I stuffed it into the cooler and proceeded to our camp spot, it was of course raining cats + dogs and nearly impossible to make camp. I reached into the cooler and pulled out an icy cold bottle in the hot humid car and took a sip. My life was changed forever, seriously. I can’t lie though a couple of summers ago I cheated on Two Hearted with Founders Centennial and I thought it might best it, but absence made the heart grow fonder and I found my way back home to My beloved 2<3’ed. I feel blessed to be a Michigander and claim this as my everyday IPA, doubt I’ll ever put out another 5 ever but I had to for this one. Tonight I had it on tap @ the Union Woodshop into a mason jar, beautiful orange glow and thumbs worth of off-white head. Smells of flowers in spring and crisp fresh lake air. Taste is impeccable for a single hop (centennial) IPA, balanced, crisp without biting, citrusy, very light pine. Simply tremendous mouthfeel and finish. Also the phenomena of Two Hearted burps is unlike any other IPA I have ever drank. Seek this beer out if you have not had it and enjoy. shoeshineboy (81) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Wow! Delicious IPA. Beautiful Hop Aroma destinguishable from 10 feet away. Poured a Dirty Golden yellow with a fast disapating head. A gorgues Blend of subtle malts and Intense Hop additions has moved this to the Top of my list. Well Done!

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Very citrus forward and only a mild bitterness. One of the classic American IPAs. Excellent slipy120 (81) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Pours light brown with a very light tan head. This beer is very hoppy with a very hoppy aftertaste. Tastes like a double IPA. Me not being a fan of IPAs did not particulary care for it but if you love hop infused beer you will like this. viet959 (81) - , Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Aroma: very floral hoppyness, some malts. Appearance: Clear dark golden color with nice head that leaves a nice lacing when it dissipates a few mins later. Flavor: floral, hoppy, pine, malts. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter.
Overall: this beer is good but not as good as the 60min or Stone IPA in my opinion. It seems like it’s lacking in complexity and finish. it’s mainly relying on it’s awesome aroma to win peoples vote. swenocha (81) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2010
Great floral/citrus aroma. Pours paler than I expected. Pale amber. Bitter, but well balanced with the malt. Thin head, gentle lacing. Can’t believe it’s 7%... Great, great IPA rollsrace (81) - - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle conditioned ipa..the settlement shouldn’t be poured...so less beer per bottle. Seems like a normal ipa to me nothing special
