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.

Pours an almost transparent, light copper with a 1-finger white head. A little of the head sticks around throughout.

The smell is mainly citrusy (tangerine & orange rinds) & floral hops with just a slight hint of pineapple. Taste is floral hops with a little citrusy bitterness. There's some sweet malt at the end. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean.

This is a highly drinkable IPA that goes great with cheddar cheese. Like a subtle Hopslam.

This beer has a resident spot in my beer fridge as well being a top pick while being bellied-up at the pub. I can't believe it's taken me this long to formally rate it.

Clear (if you don't swirl & pour in the sediment) golden amber color with a sticky booming light beige head. Globular lacing for days.

Resinous fresh hops and pineapple galore. Let's break it down; pine sap dipped in powdered sugar, dripping citrus twang and steaming sourdough bread scents.

Flavors are beyond fresh citrus, apricot, peaches & pineapple all entwined in a floral hop bouquet to die for. The malt backdrop is graceful and rounded - no sharp edges here.

Mouthfeel is prickly velvet. Nice bite served on a plush velour medium-full body. Fine carbonation at a moderate level. The finish is dry, sweet and goes on for days.

The drinkability? Are you kidding me? Definitely a beer to have "If I were stranded on a desert island".

This IPA is perfect. The most citrusy and well-placed malt profile I've ever had the pleasure to experience in an IPA. The hops are oily, fresh and uplifting - not at all husky or raw. Very smooth and graceful, but can throw the gloves off if needed. A soon-to-be Michigan legend. I vote this to be our state beer. A must try.

This is my first 6 pack, got it now that we can get Bell's in IA!!! Whoo hoo!!

Anyway, it pours a big beautiful head without even trying, I poured a little rough and had to stop the ensueing head from overflowing the glass. Looks great!! The smell is very nice grassy hops that are smooth and not harsh at all. The taste is a bit reminiscent of the Bohemoth this year from FFF, so if you've had it this is very similar. The mouthfeel is very nice, only a little bit of harsh carbonation comes through. Overall I am very glad to get this fine drink in IOWA!!!! I will have many more to come. Thank you so much Bell's!!

One of the best beers brewed by one of the best regional breweries. The opening is a spectacle: there is a giant billowing head that climbs atop a clear liquid amber body. There is nary a carbonation bubble to be seen; however, the glass retains a modicum of clingage, consisting of small glistening slabs of floral-scented lace.

The nose is overwhelmed by intnese notes of apple and lemon, a wonderfully enticing bouquet that welcomes many senses. Additionally, there is a sweet taste of citrus that is carefully balanced with lemony hops to make for a smooth mouthfeel.

This Two-Hearted is a splendid quaff that proves to be quite a sessional beer. Yummy indeed.

Maximum respect to hoppymeal for sending me four bottles of this beer in our recent trade. Poured into a nonic, Two Hearted Ale is undoubtedly hazy, golden amber with a dense and rocky small white head and sticky lacing. Sparse carbonation. Profoundly zesty citric hop aromas, with grapefruit and pine notes abiding. A substantial caramel malt scent is also detectable. Sharp grapefruit bitterness leads the hop profile here, with young spruce cone and apricot flavors arriving late in the sip. Some mineral notes ride along with a rather understated caramel malt bill that is all but obliterated by the brash (but not overwhelming) hops. Bready aftertaste. Peppery mouthfeel, juicy too. Pretty dry finish -- actually, pretty dry overall. Very nice mouthfeel on this just about medium-bodied ale. This is a ridiculously flavorful IPA which makes it incredibly drinkable. Easily one of the best of its style in the world.

12 oz bottle. Label code 7150.

Sunny orange, slightly hazy body with a huge, frothy white head. A thing of beauty among IPAs. Mega-lacing left behind, too.

Nose is fresh-cut citrus with a noticeable malt component. The smell alone gets my mouth watering.

Flavor is huge with a piney citrus blast.Plenty of malt backbone there, to hold things together, but never overdone. There is just exactly as much sweetness as is required to offset that hop blast, not one iota more. This is one of the most well balanced IPAs I have ever had, up there with Goose Island (probably better). If I lived within range of either of these, they would be staples in my beer fridge.

Mouthfeel is that wonderfully tart and tangy, nearly astringent, highly carbonated zing of a top-notch IPA.

Drinkability is insane. It's hard to make this last, it just keeps going down, heavenly sip after sip. Again, I wish I lived within distro range of this one so I could get my hands on it regularly. Next summer, I'm bringing back a case!

a- bottle poured into a pint, full finger of off white fluffy head that stays around awhile, slightly hazy goldenrod coloring, loads of carbonation, for some reason i'm really loving the fish artwork on the label, very straight forward yet, interesting.

s- not a real strong nose, some tart grapefruit, little bit of dry biscuit, pale malts.

t- pink grapefruit, grapefruit pith, sappy pine, finish is dry and super bitter - bitterness lingers for a very long time, some pineapple in the finish as well, boy do i love a well crafted ipa.

m- medium body with a good bit of slickness and hop coating.

d- this is living up to the hype, very tasty, and nicely hopped, and awesomely bitter, i could drink this all night for sure, and will definately be buying this in the future, a homerun for bells!
