An India Pale Ale style well suited for adventurous trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and an incredibly floral aroma.

I was about to comment on how underrated Bell's Two Hearted is. But then I hopped in here to post my review and see that it actually scores quite well. While not talked about that often, it is certainly an outstanding year-round India Pale Ale. Two-hearted is readily available here in Terre Haute, and I commonly order it when no other beers pique my interest. Certainly a top notch IPA.

Reviewing this one from the tap as that is generally how I drink them. Consumed in a standard pint glass at TGIFriday's late late last night. A darker clear golden-amber color with an impressive amount of soft loosely packed nearly white head. Had several pints of the two-hearted and noted distinct rings of lace left after every drink. Even though the head had receded to about one finger before I took my first swig, there was plenty to stick to the side of the glass.

A very nice combination of sweet grapefruit and other citrusy scents. A touch of flower and pine add to a very well-balanced nose.

Bell's Two Hearted starts out with a crisp bitter taste that is extremely creamy, rich, and full-bodied. It transitions to an excellent citrusy fruit (apricots, grapefruits, etc.) before coming full circle to a hopped, slightly bitter finish. However, there is very little lingering bitterness that I think often detracts from some IPAs.

This one has to be near the top for drinkability. I order it over just about anything that isn't new or different. Along with Hopslam and the Expedition Stout, Bell's shows that they can brew some outstanding beer. I still think that their beer in general is undervalued - I guess that leaves more for the rest of us.

Finally getting around to reviewing. The beer pours a mildly hazy copper amber with a thick head that settles to a thick collared ring. Nice lacing too.

Good scent of orange and grapefruit. Well done. A hint of caramel as well, but mostly all about the hops. Taste is similar with plenty of grapefruit. The caramel sweetness finishes with a crisp firm bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a great level of carbonation that comes off very well. Mostly dry finish, but the caramel sweetness lingers.

Great all around IPA that may not have the bells and whistles of today's over amped IBUs or latest hop cultivar, but comes together very well.
