L: Nice IPA look, decent head

S: Not super pungent. Floral and mellow.

T: Pretty mild but crisp and super super easy to drink. Finish is quite nice and not overly bitter. Hard to believe this is 7%! Alcohol is maybe barely present. Very nice IPA even for those who are not huge fans of the type

F: Really good carbonation level. As said, easy to drink

O: Would recommend to those just looking for a solid brew. Not overpowering at all. No complaints about this one.

Classic IPA. A little bit of home in Texas.

A soft looking beer almost like unfiltered but a nice smell of hops. Not too strong. Taste is great, again not too strong for an IPA. An easy drinker. Could be a session beer by me. Overall, everybody is right, this is a fine IPA. On draft at Ron's Corner Tavern.

Pours golden. Aroma of orangey citrus. Orange and tangerine up front that's quickly met with coniferous resiny bitterness. I remember first having this beer when I split a pitcher of it with a friend in college at the Blue Leprechaun in Ann Arbor. I was blown away by how good it was. Many, many IPAs later, this still is a great beer to me.

Brewed in Michigan and named after the Two Hearted River I must recommend this beer to everyone because I consider Bells Two Hearted American IPA to be the gold standard for American IPA's. I absolutely love this beer and it seems to be one of the most popular AIPA's in my region, NYC metro area quickly gaining market share across the United States.

Look: Golden - healthy carbonation. I usually drink out of the bottle because I can't wait. Served in a visually pleasing brown bottle with gorgeous painting of a trout on the label and on the cap.

Smell: Two hearted gives off a delicious floral clean arouma of pine coupled with slightly fruity flowery accents. Envision yourself laying in a field of wild flowers surrounded on the periphery by a forrrest of pines.

Taste: Hoppy piney flavor not overly fruity - perfectly balanced with malt. Very drinkable. 7.0% ABV

Feel: Perfect Buzz. Amazing beer for those who like to have a beer on the hiking trail or outdoors in the sun - not too heavy. I never get a bloated feeling while drinking Bells two hearted and I really enjoy the AIPA light buzz. Goes down very easy. Favorite beer hands down.

Have had this beer several times, but am finally reviewing it. Since our last name is Bell I've always had an affinity for Bell's Brewery. Some really good brews, and this one is REALLY good. His the spot just right!
