Beer added by: Todd on 12-11-2001

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.

A - Poured a pale gold, thin and short head.

S - Grapefruit, citrus, soggy woodland soil and grass.

T - Resiny, woody hop flavors bloom out from the front. Very earthy and herbal, gradually fading into a more juicy, citrusy flavor. Almost 'soaked' tasting. The citrus hangs powerfully in the residual taste.

M - Fairly light body, very juicy, with a decent carbonation.

O - I can see why this is often considered the archetype of the IPA. Has all the major American hop flavors rolled into one, and with a very middle-of-the-road crispness and bitterness.

It was pretty smooth. Had a nice taste of sweetness and crisp.

Very good and complex for an IPA. Deserves the high ratings. I am generally a wheat guy - but the two hearted ale works and is very good.

A little too much grape fruit at the tip of the tongue but it's a decent beer.

The stonger aromas of spice, hops and malt and deep color can lead drinkers to belive that this is a heavy beer but it is extremely crisp and smooth mouthfeel from the carbonation making it a perfect all-occasion beer. I didn't get any fruity notes from this beer, so it was a nice change from many of the overly floral and fruity IPA's crowding the shelves today.

Two Hearted is a full IPA. IPA is now the new entry level beer for breweries. This is single hopped. It has centennials hops with a malt background. It is the largest single purchaser for Bell's. It is 100% centennial hops.

beautiful golden orange color, but a fishy smell with a bitter taste. Good beer, I'm just not an IPA fan

I do not typically like IPAs, so this is not one of my favorites. It has a nice golden orange color, a slightly fishy smell, and floral and hoppy notes.

I was very excited to try this beer, and it certainly lived up to expectations. The combination of hops, malt, and carbonation make this a delightful, multi-layered brew. I would happily seek out Two Hearted again and again.

Bottled 3/28, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pretty solid, nice hoppy, floral taste, but lacks the aromatics that would really set it apart from the crowd for me. Just my personal opinion, but I think this one was probably world class some years ago, but other easily-available beers have surpassed it. Like, a biplane is awesome and I respect it for it's role in history, but I'd still rather fly on a 777, you know?

This beer is awesome. A Hop head delight yet has a zesty, fruity, grassy dry finish that is so calm and enigmatic to it's hops. Definitely a go to beer.

Just OK at best... Had on tap but simply was not as good as anticipated. I might try again to see if it was just a tap or local issue.

The color of this beer is a really dark yellow. The aroma you get is a citrus smell and is kind of strong. Tasting this beer it has a zing and tangy taste to it and the aftertaste is really unpleasant.

I am averse to hops, so take that into consideration when considering my evaluation

A bit overrated IMO. Not bad but not great. A little too bitter for my taste.

Glad the Whole Foods in my area started carrying Bell's.

Look: Light copper orange with minimal head. Light lacing is left around the glass as you sip and enjoy.

Smell: Nice notes of the variety of hops that are used in this beer. I pick out sweet orange, tangerine, and a slight malt sugar.

Taste: Very balanced taste that starts off with the bitter bite of the citrus flavored hops followed by a nice balance of sugary sweetness from the malt. A nice representation of the American IPA style.

Feel: Light to medium mouthfeel that leaves a pleasant lingering aftertaste that diminishes slowly after every sip.

Overall: I would say I'm satisfied with this beer from Bell's Brewery. I was glad I finally was able to get some and it surely did not disappoint. I'd recommend picking this one up the next time you are looking for a smooth IPA for a 2 to 3 beer session.

Great IPA, golden color, not to much head, carbonation just right, smell to mango, citrus fruits and some floral, but I think is its weakness, I like stronger smells, taste is a little light for and IPA, I like it, not too bitter, and not too fruity, but with some character, easy drinkable, I'll have it again.
