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 a word of warning, I have not always been the biggest of IPA drinkers. Over the past year or so I have gravitated towards dark beers with a lager or two sprinkled in, but with my shift further north I have decided to expand my palate a bit and give the bitter side of the family a solid few months of effort. That being said, Bell's Two Hearted Ale may be my favorite IPA of my limited experience. Its very floral hop forward with a strong citrus backbone.

One thing that seems to be common practice is the introduction of bittering agents. This one is much less bitter than something with such a strong hop infused flavor. Huge carbonation which helps to usher in that freshness factor IPA drinkers cherish so much. Nice sunflower color, poured a half finger head. Floral and grapefruit aroma. A little tropical fruit in there, maybe some mango? Smells sticky sweet and acidic. Deceptively pungent in the flavor department, almost saison-esque with the amount of flavor this little number packs in. Nice alcoholic burn in the aftertaste, wait for a second after the swallow and it creeps in.

Did I mention I love this IPA? Seriously, between this and Ten Fidy there isn't much room in my favorite unhyped not-limited beers club. Didn't have to fight to buy some and the price is right on target.
