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.

Bought a six pack in Niagara Falls, USA for $10.95.
A - Nice dark amber thick white head. Good retention.
S - Slight citrus and pine. A little malt. Much less aroma than I expected.
T - Mild hops flavours and some mild malt sweetness. This beer is incredibly well-balanced and the alcohol is almost unnoticeable.
M - Very smooth and light.
O - Fantastic beer. Great stuff.
