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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Poured orangish gold in color with a white head that left plenty of lacing.

Smell - Lovely floral hop aroma, very pleasant.

Taste - Hops dominate the taste. The beer is light enough on the malt and heavy enough on the hops that I am getting my much needed hop fix without interference from the malt. Great hop flavor to pair with the great hop aroma.

Mouthfeel - light/medium in body. Nice and crisp.

Drinkability - Sessionable, in fact if I could get this easier it would be my new go to IPA. We've just began to see Bell's here in VA and I couldnt be more excited. Hopefully we'll get some better distribution b/c this would always have a home in my fridge.

Orange, lightly hazed. A whipped-looking white head rises a good three fingers high and leaves behind patchy lacing. Bright sugary citrus aroma, like a handful of centennial hops. The flavor is certainly not a letdown if you're looking for hops. But its not an in-your-face tongue massacre, its loads of fresh, oily hop flower power. Like candied grapefruit, but never heavy and cloying, the filling mouthfeel is surprisingly easy to handle . Naturally bitter, though not overly so. This is an IPA all about that sticky hop cone FLAVOR, not just IBUs. Really delicious stuff...I've found its already become one of my favorites.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: deep golden ale, not quite clear, ivory head a few fingers high, smattering of lace trailed behind, persistent filmy cap

S: flowers and rain, chewy grains, notes of citric pith

T: crisp and fresh malt bill supports a gorgeous hop array, bringing many floral and citric powers to the fore

M: crisp and tight, clean and light; moderate bitterness and superior drinkability

O: top-tier IPA action here - glad Bell's has found its way to Long Island - the flavors and smells and feel are fairly style-typical, but there is something that happened in the execution of this beer that produced a product of exceptional quality. In terms of craftsmanship, it draws comparisons to the best of the rest.

cask at Maduro Madison with dirtylou and golden2wenty1

appearance: The fluffy, off-white head recedes only partially, exhibiting great retention and nice lacing. The beer is a pretty clear golden-amber in color.

smell: The aroma is full of leafy green C hops and pale, grainy husk aromas. The usual tropical fruits, though slightly muddied in the cask.

mouthfeel: The carbonation is low, and the body a full, smooth medium.

taste: At first I notice an unexpected oak flavor. Flavors of crisp hops and subdued caramel malts. Light to moderate bitterness in the finish.

drinkability: easy...There was more of a difference between this and a standard Two Hearted than I expected.

bottle dated 11.12.13 consumed 12.06.13 - just as lovely as always, floral and bright citrus rind of lemon/lime/tangerine, so fresh, exceedingly cleanly malted with a perfect bitterness, a personal favorite and key to my intro into the scene - scores left intact. going back to my roots tonight with two hearted, double cream, cherry, java, expedition, and third coast on deck.
