Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

As perfect as an IPA as I could ask for; a very favorite. Strikes the perfect balance between hops and malt, retaining characters of both in flavor (far too many IPAs are stupidly hoppy, heavy-handed). Smooth and endlessly drinkable, my ideal session brew. Perfect head, beautiful color. The benchmark against which I judge other IPAs, and indeed, other beers in general.

I'll say it this way: it's the only beer that I'm offering at my wedding next spring :)

Finally got my hands on this while in PA for my cousin's wedding.

Poured from the bottle into my duval tulip. Has a nice dark amber body with a slight off white 2 finger head which left nice lacing down the side of the glass.

Aroma - Lots of pine and citrus flavors coming through on the nose, some of the malt makes its presence shown.

Taste - Hops from the word go, this is a very complex brew. Lots of piney and citrus up front, and the hop bitterness combating the smooth sweet malt. Makes for a great combination of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium, alcohol notes are hidden well, but adds to the wonderful flavor of it. carbonation is great.

Overall - A very solid IPA at a nice ABV. What a great beer to have year around. I can't wait to pick up more of it.

Notes: I drank this on the 23rd of October. This beer got to my hands after a transatlantic trip on the 3rd of September.

A: I poured the Two Hearted can into my Duvel tulip glass. The body is super cristaline, with a orange-y amber touch to it. 1 finger thick white head that had some nice lacing.
S: It reminds me a lot of Pliny, which was the last IPA I had before this one - lots of pine and fruity aromas, more like citrus.
T & M: The hops presence here is beautifully made since it is backed by the pine and citrus on the aroma. The hops are so awesome that even though this beer has only 42 IBUs, you want to play with it in your mouth, going from one side of the tongue to another, enjoying every sip of this beer. The alcohol is barely noticeable and the carbonation is awesomely done.

O: It's the first Bell's I have. I haven't had that many 'huge' IPAs but this one was a true surprise for me. Need to get some more of this.
