Notes: 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.

Not too hoppy, just as good room temperature as ice cold.
Better from bottle. Wife doesn’t like it so it’s my go-to beer when camping.
Reasonably priced in my area.

12oz can with date code 062823. Served in a pint glass. Bit coppery color, orange amber, with a thick white head. Very nice start. Old school AIPA aromas of citrus and maybe some pine. Really substantial mouthfeel owing to a solid malt backbone with some crystal malts along with a creamy load of carbonation. Maybe even oats in the mash? But anyway, this is an IPA, and it brings along a very reasonable level of bitterness and piny goodness. Makes me think of Dogfish 60 minute in terms of flavor profile, turned up just a little bit, but not as far as 90.

I've been hearing about this middle-of-the-country beer for years and I'm not disappointed having finally tried it!

A staple if you will. Gets better as it warms. Decent IPA. Not too much hops.

Not a huge IPA guy, this was ok. A little too hoppy. Won’t buy again

Wonderful medium-strength IPA with beautiful and nicely balanced flavors of pine and tropical fruits. Ideal for winter/fall as this beer will warm your souls. A bit heavy for warm days, can feel like a meal.

An American pale ale at its most defining characteristic. I’ve grown to love centennial hops and this seems to be available at many stores which, as much as I love local craft brews (especially around Chicago, like 3 Floyds and Revolution), distribution is key for a transient graduate student as myself who loves consistent tasty beers at reasonable prices. This beer holds its freshness compared to other American IPAs which need to be consumed within 6-8 weeks.

Bells Two Hearted is a classic IPA that I can't be mad at. It's the kind of beer that I'll happily buy at a bar and not be disappointed. The look of the beer is see through. The smell is mostly a classic balance of hops and malt. The taste and feel is nothing different. There are only a few IPAs that I like better because they have more West Coast hops, but this beer is as reliable and classic as it comes.

Pours a rich gold color, clear with a foamy white head. Smells a little of pine bitterness. Taste is well balanced, caramel malt flavor with a dry bitter finish.

For many years I've read about how good this beer is...but it wasn't available. About 2 weeks ago I found it at a local store in the 22 oz can section and couldn't believe my eyes. YES..this beer lives up to all the rave reviews. In a world where there are so many great IPAs...this one stands out.
