looks like this thread is long gone-but I tried it in the mid-summer of 2011 along with other styles and types...at that time i didnt even know the difference between styles of beer but I loved it so much that i saved the bottle so I would know what it is-i should prolly have more than one beer if i want to claim it as my fav_o well-lol-currently on a Ranger kick _8.95 for a sixer _cha-ching!

I love it! I have the clone in my secondary right now! I only made it because it has remained in my mind for years since I tried it. It was a bad one.

My old roommate from back East sadly informed me (we can't get Bells in Colorado) that someone mixed up kegs and tapped the Hopslam keg as Two Hearted Ale.

I've been crying ever since.

Found this on tap while in Arlington, VA last weekend.

Lots of hype, but it did not disappoint!

So, now I'm looking for bulk Centennial with no luck.

Just bought 2 crowns of Centennial Hops. Can anyone guess why?

Planted my hops last night. Popped open a bottle of 2H and poured it into a glass with 2 capfuls of bourbon. Man was that good! Probably could have went with a single capful, but it was still an amazing flavor combination!

So now its almost 3 years after my original post. I've had tons of IPA's since then. 2 hearted doesn't even crack the top ten. These are in no particular order but are definitely better than 2 hearted any day.

AleSmith
Ballast Point Sculpin
Russian River Blind Pig
Cigar City Humidor Series Jai Alai Cedar Aged India Pale Ale
Tröegs Nugget Nectar Ale
Green Flash West Coast
Ithaca Flower Power
Port Brewing Wipeout
Port Brewing Mongo
Firestone Walker Union Jack

Any thoughts on how Denny's 50 would work for B2H?

HopSlam is the shinnizle. It is weird aroud here, I can find more taverns that have it on Tap, than I can find Liquor Store that carry it bottled.
