Three Hearted Ale All Grain Kit O.G: 1064 / Ready: 6 weeks Is this the river Hemingway was really writing about in "Big Two-Hearted River?" Did he change the name in the story, not to hide the presence of brook trout as big as his arm from other fishermen, but to hide the presence of this beer? Obviously. NB's Three Hearted Ale is a larger-than-life American IPA with a hop aroma so thick you can almost see it. American base malt and crystal malt create the big body, pale-amber color, and slight grainy sweetness, while Centennial hops deliver pronounced bitterness and a citrusy aroma and flavor. Hoppy and appetizing, this beer can't be beat with grilled lake trout and baby potatos on a cool evening. Brew one and make Papa proud.
