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.

Two Hearted was one of the first IPAs I tried and enjoyed. I still like it, but having tried many IPAs over the past few years, it does not stand out as it once did. It’s a great beer and I always have some in my fridge, but have gravitated toward some other IPAs that are more hop forward and more bold in terms of citrus, pine and other fruits.

Pours a foggy golden orange with each nice eggshell head, very nice lacing. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste follows. Great balance of hops and malt. Good texture and carbonation. A terrific beer.

Poured into a 16oz glass at the pub after a round of 18 holes, and MAN what a beer to have after a game of golf. High ABV to get a good buzz on, solid feel, and an incredible hoppy flavor. Highly recommended

Coming from the home area of the brewery and since moving around the country, I have acquired a wide appreciation for Bell's beers. Two hearted has always been close to my heart since trying it on its inaugral run. I had always thought of it as the beer that changed beers, and years ago I would have given it close to a 5/5! However, since then, IPA's have changed and yes it is still a staple of IPA's, it is not my "go-to". It looks gorgeous poured, and smells/feels beautiful as well. The taste hangs bitter, and I am tasting between a local pour, bottle, and a

looks fairly dark yellow/orange. Smells of pine with some citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange rind. Taste follows the nose well with a hit of bitterness up front followed by some piney notes then some citrusy notes. Overall a great classic ipa that I could drink everyday anytime . Great beer
