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 a fantastic beer that I drink pretty regularly. One of my favorite go to IPAs. Pours a nice color and a decent head. The smell is very good, zesty citrus which is one of my favorites. Taste is very much full of those same notes as well. Always a good beer to drink

My first chance to sample this highly rated brew since Bell's has just begun to be distributed in our area.
The beer poured a light copper to dark amber hue with an adequate amount of head. The lacework stayed on the glass the entire pint.
Aroma of piney/citrusy hops (chinook and cascades?) with a hint of sweetness in the background. Somewhat fruity as well.
Hops overwhelm the malt but there is a finish of sweetness followed by a lingering bitterness. Very biting mouthfeel due top the carbonation level and the IBU's involved.
Overall, it a good beer but too much pine for my tastes.

Bell's makes some great Stouts. Their Oatmeal Stout is amazing, but I haven't been too impressed with their other offerings. I'm going to have to go against the grain here and say that Bell's Two Hearted Ale is just another horribly over hopped American ale. I know it's an IPA and hoppiness is a characteristic of the style, but I just don't think there is enough maltiness and body in this brew to support all the hops. All I can taste is a sickening amount of floral and citrus hops. To me it seems very unbalanced and astringent. In my opinion it certainly doesn't belong in the BA top 50.

I poured this from a 12oz bottle I got from Westy's outside of Harrisburg PA. It's sort of a golden amber with a smallish head that lingered for a while. Nice lacing throughout. The smell is great with lots of pine, citrus, and a little honey. Very balanced. The taste is much like the smell lots of citrus, pine, and some clove as well. Not too bitter but not sweet at all. The mouthfeel is smooth and dry at the end. This is a very drinkable beer. The kind of AIPA that you can have many of. Definitely one of the best AIPA's I have ever had. Really perfect for the style. Very hoppy but not stringently bitter - nicely balanced. Great beer.
