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: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Smuttynose pint glass.

Appearance- Cloudy orange color with little to no head. Mild lacing around the top of the glass.

Smell- Very mild. Some subdued hop notes. A bit of malt. About it.

Taste- Some piney and floral hops precent. Not overly strong in flavor. Good, but very mild. Some malt backbone. ABV is hidden.

Mouthfeel- Light and smooth. Perfect carbonation. Not resinous at all.

Overall- A very light IPA. It's nice, but I've had better.

Fluffy, "marshmallow" head on top of a cloudy yellow-orange body.
The scent is dominated by grapefruit hoppiness, but a hint of malt is there too.
Very hoppy in the start of the drink, but a malt presence becomes more pronounced on the back of the tongue.
Definitely very smooth and drinkable, one of the gems in the Bell's line of beers.

Enjoyed at The Beer Bistro-West Loop in Chicago, IL. Served in a Bell's shaker pint glass.

Served with a two finger head and shows copper with orange accents. Good head retention, and splotchy lacing. Big floral and citrus aromas on the nose. Fairly bitter citrus-tinged hops are ever-present as is the biscuity malt bill. Finishes dry with citrus rind bitterness. Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, and smooth. Very drinkable, however the nose tends to promise much more depth to the flavor than is actually delivered. Certainly a very solid American IPA, but nothing groundbreaking. Still not among my top choices for go-to American IPAs

Batch 8984

A - Color is medium gold and hints around at light orange in the right light. The off white head tops out at just over half inch before settling to a paper thin cap. Retention is average while light lacing is able to stick around afterwards.

S - Aroma is loaded with citrusy goodness. Lots of orange gets backed up by a lighter mango smell. Gets sugary about midway. More fruit finishes it up. Could be some grapefruit that pop in for a visit.

T - Sweet citrus flavors dominate this brew. Loads of orange with some bitter grapefruit that come together to make a very juicy beverage. The malt base really just supports the fruity hops. Some hard candy comes through at the end. Light bread flavors come through in a very distant aftertaste.

M - On the lighter side of medium bodied with a slightly active carbonation that tickles the palate. Finish start out sweet and fruity finishing off with a mild dry bitterness.

D - Drinkability is good. This is a juicy well balanced brew. Alcohol is hard to pick out in the flavor and aroma. The bitterness level works very well with the other flavors. The malt stays out of the way (for the most part). Bells has a good thing going with the Two Hearted. This one is easily reocommended.

A-Pours a clear, light copper color with a pillow of a white, creamy, two finger head that had great retention and very strong sticky lacing.
S-The aroma is probably the most "tropical fruit" smelling beers I've had. The hops lend a very mango-like hop aroma to the beer. And I guess some mild fruity esthers from the yeast. Oh yes, and pinapples too! Very tropical. Great for a summertime IPA!
T-Mirrors the aroma exactly with tuns of pinapple and mango fruit with a hefty yet very clean bitterness that every American IPA ought to have.
M-The body is medium with a very clean and crisp finish.
O-Overall, I'm really enjoying this beer. Bell's really knows how to make a great beer.
