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.

Slightly hazy amber-gold, small creamy head with some lace. Smell is pine, grass, pineapple. There isn't much sensation at first swig, but toasted malt fades into super bitter, fruity, piney hops. The hoppy bitterness dominates from here. Medium-light body, but syrupy.

If you like em hoppy and bitter, try this.

A - Pours a golden orange with a nice head and great lacing.

S - Nice blend of piney and citrus hops. A little sweet, but the hops are the focus here.

T - Nice hoppy flavor. A little sweet and citrusy (grapefruit most predominant). Some pine as well.

M -Great hoppy and dry finish. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Pretty smooth and drinkable.

O - Two Hearted is a classic IPA and an excellent example of the style. It won't blow you away, but it's definitely a go-to beer.

Poured into a Sweetwater pint. 2012 Edition.

A - A nice frothy pale head on top of a relatively clear yellow. Bar none, this is the beer's worst quality.

S - Grapefruit, pine, and sweet hops. All the scents are soft and very nice on the nose.

T - Loaded with citrus up front, dominated by grapefruit. The beer moves into a nice fruity hop bitterness. The malt is not particularly dominant, but for the style it's damn near perfect.

M - Medium bodied brew that is rich, smooth and creamy. Carbonation is on point, complimenting the hops nicely.

O - For a standard IPA, this might be the best in the business. All the qualities that this is "lacking" are all relative to degrees of robustness, which are found in a DIPA, TIPA, etc.

A long time favorite that I've never had the chance to review.

The beer was a golden color that wielded a two finger eggshell white head. The head disappeared pretty quickly, but settled in to a film of bubbles and left some sticky lacing.

Grapefruit, grass, and other citrus fill the nose. There is a note of some sweetness. Caramel maybe?

Again, very citrusy hops that follows in to a earthy bitterness. There is a fruit-loopy sweetness that rounds out each sip. The most that I can make out from the malt is some caramel, but there is enough of a backbone to help out all the hops. Has a mellow bitter finish.

Medium bodied with a smooth and creamy carbonation.

This is my go-to IPA. It's not the absolute best, but the drinkability is uncanny. Lots of flavor and it won't bog you down. The only thing to watch out for is that it hides the 7% very well, so the booze will catch up with you.

Slow pour into a standard pint glass.

A: A very light copper and fairly cloudy. Plenty of carbonation bubbles raising to the head. One finger of dense light biege and very dense head that was long-lasting.

S: Strong grapefruit and citrusy aroma with a touch of pine and floral slipping through. Just a touch of sweetness, too.

M: Medium body with some carbonation and a dry finish.

T: A Grapefruit and citrus bitterness in a very big hops blast. Again there is a little pine and floral after the intitial citrus rush. And just enough malt backbone to to keep the bitterness from becoming overwhelming.

O: The upfront hops blast really gets your attention. The grapefruit and citrusy bite come in a big rush and then blend with the pine and floral flavors adding interesting layers. This is another great offering from Bells that is sure to please hop heads.
