Poured from a 12ounce bottle into a Pint Glass
Pours an amber with hints of mahogany, the head is a phenomenal three fingers and amber white. The lacing of this beer almost outdoes the massive fluffy head and the retention never leaves the top of the beer uncovered. Once settled into the glass the beer takes on a beautiful haze letting you know that this beer is packed with flavour!
Hop citrus, grapefruit, grapefruit and some more grapefruit waft from my glass. I love the smell of the Centennial hops absolutely fantastic.
The smell is a perfect preview to the deliciousness that awaits in each mouthful of hop infused goodness. A sweet, citrusy, hop flavour of grapefruit balances well against the bittering hop characteristics of this beer. Seems to sweeten as it warms, a very bold candied sugar flavour is present for the majority of the taste, a slight bitterness presents itself almost as an afterthought and soon fades back to a light candy and citrus flavour.
Carbonation and viscosity make this beer pleasing to the palate.
A very drinkable and well-crafted beer, it has everything if not more than I would expect from an American IPA. Extremely flavourful and well balanced this beer plays on itself first by captivating you with it's deep amber and frothing white head. It takes hold with it's magnificent aroma of grapefruit, citrusy hops, and a hint of sweet fruit. The flavour drags you in with a ridiculously large grapefruit and citrus flavour congruous to the bittering subtleties of the hops. The feel of this beer in your mouth and it's sheer need to be consumed get you hooked. I set this beer as the standard to which all others in this style strive to reach.

Two Hearted Ale - Bell's Brewery
7% ABV 55 IBU
APPEARANCE: Pours a hazy slightly cloudy golden straw color. Big huge billowy head that dissipated rather quickly leaving some great lacing patterns.
AROMA: The nose was a bit subdued. Floral notes, summertime dandelions and soft grass. Nice & mellow citrus and pine hops.
TASTE: I get grain and sweet malts up front. Nice citrus wave crashes and releases some grapefruit and tropical fruits. Slight bitterness on the end.
MOUTHFEEL: Light and crisp with medium body and medium prickly carbonation. Dry snappy finish.
OVERALL: Very solid brew. I think of it as a gateway into IPA's. Not a lot of that bitterness that I'm used to but still really enjoyable.
RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!
