Kind of ironic that the 1st Bells Two Hearted I try is cask conditioned. At the time, I wished I had a bottled version of it so there was something to compare it to. Said that, after drinking the cask (adn eventually trying a bottle), I can say that the cask version does not disappoint!
The color was a cloudy deep yellow/orange with a typical cask head that lasts throughout.
The smell was a slap of citrus and hops on the nose. Very refreshing. Since this was on cask, I was expecting more of a low scent.
The taste was remarkable. Creamy big mouthfeel that sits there and hop flavor busting through. Definitely a well balanced cask version of a wonderful ale. Drink one and burp that hop taste all night.

Two Hearted Ale fills a Blue Point snifter with hazy amber (SRM 6-8) while occasional columns of tiny bubbles add to the ¼ inch, pale orange, creamy head that quickly dissipates.
The aroma is dominated by apricot, followed by fresh orange and clear, but minimal, grapefruit and floral notes.
This offering is quite bitter up front with an equal balance of citrus flavors. Crisp and clean, with a light apricot finish that lingers. Slight warming ushers in the grapefruit flavors.
The medium body and dry finish accentuates a rough texture and light prickly carbonation.
Two Hearted Ale clearly deserves its reputation. One can easily imagine how a fresher example would be exquisite. Three months from bottling, this one still delivers while unwinding after a long day.
