Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Batch 8984

A - Color is medium gold and hints around at light orange in the right light. The off white head tops out at just over half inch before settling to a paper thin cap. Retention is average while light lacing is able to stick around afterwards.

S - Aroma is loaded with citrusy goodness. Lots of orange gets backed up by a lighter mango smell. Gets sugary about midway. More fruit finishes it up. Could be some grapefruit that pop in for a visit.

T - Sweet citrus flavors dominate this brew. Loads of orange with some bitter grapefruit that come together to make a very juicy beverage. The malt base really just supports the fruity hops. Some hard candy comes through at the end. Light bread flavors come through in a very distant aftertaste.

M - On the lighter side of medium bodied with a slightly active carbonation that tickles the palate. Finish start out sweet and fruity finishing off with a mild dry bitterness.

D - Drinkability is good. This is a juicy well balanced brew. Alcohol is hard to pick out in the flavor and aroma. The bitterness level works very well with the other flavors. The malt stays out of the way (for the most part). Bells has a good thing going with the Two Hearted. This one is easily reocommended.
