Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter.

Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere.

I've always been so swayed by the brook trout on the can. I just love the fish, okay? Women love me & fish fear me. No, sorry, that's not true. I'm a woman. I just like fish. Did you know that trout have two hearts? Anyway. I like it better than most beers. There's nothing going on in the nose. However, the taste is a pleasant and balanced bitterness with enough malt to provide the necessary depth. It's not overly bitter for the sake of making a point; it just tastes good. I would happily drink this any day. Not sure whether I prefer this, which showcases the bitterness of hops and has a "natural" smell, or Bell's Cold Hearted, which showcases the green, herbaceous, pine-y hops flavor with that strange green apple-y note. Both are just really solid beers at their price point. I've had Bell's Two Hearted more times than I can count, so it's hard to review. Try it. Do it for the fish.

This is one of my favorites. OG WC taste and feel to it . Good complex taste profile showcasing hoppy bitterness without being jarring.

Also widespread distribution and availability makes me gravitate towards it even more.

This one is sort of the Beer Advocate OG for me. Someone told me it was rated #1 before I had any idea what BA was.... fairly long time ago and a lot of beers have come & gone since. I have relatives in Michigan and was on this one early, but this one is pretty well distributed now where anyone can get it anytime.

12 oz bottle poured into an Angler's Pint. Color is a nice orange, copper. Beautiful, foamy head. Taste is hop forward with a bitter follow. Nice lacing as I drink it. Very smooth and very well done.

Pours deep gold with moderate clarity. Nice amount of pine and grapefruit aroma. A good amount of malt characteristics balance the hop bitterness. I'm usually not a fan of IPAs but this isn't bad, not bad at all.

Beautiful tall very persistent off white head like shaving cream, over a hazy orange/gold liquid. leaves lots of lacing. smell is subtle, but consistent with the nice balanced flavor of hoppy+malty goodness. A nice amount of bitterness. Overall a classic example of an American IPA

Poured from a 12 oz can into a "Maudite" goblet.
Smell: some background "funk" that dissipates along with a typical hop aroma.
Appearence: Cloudy deep gold - big frothy head that settles nicely - nice lacing
Taste: Incredibly balanced - pine and citrus with just enough Malt to make a great mouthfeel - lingering bitterness
Overall a great Ale that is a Hallmark for this style
