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.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, bottled 4/29/12. Pours a orange yellow, with a one inch white that leaves attractive lacing. Smell is mango, pineapple, tangerine, grass, and grapefruit. Taste is all of that extremely well balanced, leaving you with subtle grapefruit finish. Body is light, plenty of carbonation, on the dry side, and very drinkable. I need to thank my friend Pat for hauling from Florida for. A true treat! Fans of Stone, Finest Kind, and Flower Power should all really enjoy.

This is an excellent beer!
A: Golden hue, impressive pour with thick long lasting head
S: party for the nose! spice, hops, full power feel
T: this is the best part....some say over rated, I say one of the best beers i've had in 30 years of drinking! This has full body, nothing thin about it, tastes roll around in your mouth, makes you want for more! citrus, hops, spice its all here.
M: very full bodied, almost chewey, thick and delicious
O: deserves an everyday place in my fridge. I dorve 2.5hrs 1 way to get a case of this in PA and it was worth it. I kept 1 sixer for "next time". Hard to find on east coast, but deserves better distribution.

Bells is one of my favorite breweries. After trying Hopslam and enjoying it, a friend of mine recommended Two-Hearted Ale, the other popular (and non-Imperial) IPA brewed by Bells. Alright, here goes:

A: I poured the beer directly into a glass to see the type of head that would be produced. It was large and white (very large, actually). While the head dissipated quickly, it was large enough to impress me. The beer's body was a clear orange and quite pretty to look at (especially with a massive head sitting atop it). Perfect IPA-type appearance.

S: Very floral and citrusy. I love the smell of lemons, so I'm quite partial to the smell of IPA's, but what really stood out was this beer's flowery aroma. It smells similar to sunflowers.

T: Delicious. Can taste lemons, oranges, white pepper, various spices and grapefruit. The dominant flavor was lemon, though. Furthermore, for an IPA there was very little hop bitterness, and the aftertaste was barely noticeable (very different from most IPA's in which a bitter, stinging aftertaste is apparent). I was so shocked that I accidentally started gulping it down quickly before realizing how much of the beer I had actually drunk (more than 6 oz). I would almost classify this beer as dangerously drinkable.

M: Very smooth and non-bitter, which is shocking for an IPA. Like I said in the 'taste' section, this beer is dangerously drinkable.

O: Excellent. One of my favorite IPA's.

The beer was poured into a snifter. It came out amber with about 2 1/2 fingers of white head. The scent was very floral and fruity. The taste was extreme citrus with just the right amount of hops on the back end. The mouth feel is very smooth. I love this beer and try to pick it up anywhere that I see it available.
