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.

This is my be-all, end-all brew; my go-to beer in times of indecision. To put it bluntly, this is my favorite beer on the planet. I've felt this way for years, and my opinion is unlikely to change any time soon. On to the review!

It pours a lovely, hazy copper with a pearl-white head. The lacing is very much abundant.

The aroma is huge citrusy, flowery hops. Hops dominate the smell to the nth degree.

The flavor matches the smell. This stuff is ridiculously hoppy. We're talking massively Godzilla-sized hoppy. It's unbalanced, and I fucking love it for that. The thing is, it's so damned crisp and so damned refreshing that I don't care that the malt footprint is so tiny. There's enough malt in there to leave some smoothness, but I want this to be the treehouse for the hops kids. They can put up their "No Malts Allowed" sign. I'm down for one dash of malts in my hop-tastic beer.

The mouthfeel is creamy and medium-bodied. Heavenly, if you will.

I could drink a case of this every day for the rest of my life. Granted, at a deceptive 7% abv, my liver would begin to look like Hans Moleman (look, we've worked two Simpsons references into one review) and I would be smashed off my ass for all of time, but it would be worth it.

To the folks at Bell's Brewery, consider this my love note; my heart poured onto e-paper in ode to your beautiful, perfect libation. I am forever in your debt.

- Hugs n' kisses,

This is the beer that made me love beer. The hoppy aroma draws you into this beer and adds to the slightly bitter taste. This beer is slightly less bitter than most other IPAs and is a great add on to any beer drinkers list. This beer comes strongly recomended.

Bell's Two hearted Ale is one of the most delicious beer's I have ever tasted in my young life. It has a citrus flavor overtone that comes through, however it is not too strong and nicely balanced. The has no bitterness to it and it goes down real smooth. Another plus if you're a hop head like myself is that the beer is pretty darn hoppy.

In conclusion Two Hearted Ale definitely warrants a 5 rating, and if you see this beer at your local beer/party store pick this up!!

Btw Bell's I just want to give a big shout out to you guys and whatever you're doing keep it up! And please make similar beers just like Two Hearted Ale.
