I had this on draft at a local taphouse and loved it even though it was served a little warmer than I prefer.

12oz canned 11/14/17 poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 7% ABV. The beer pours slightly hazy light amber with sticky off white head. Retention and lacing are above average. The aroma is citrus and pine. The taste is a lovely balance of caramel malt and citrus & pine from the centennial hops. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, well carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a little sticky hop oil and caramel finish that is again: balanced. Overall, excellent. The hardest thing about reviewing this beer is slowing down enough to take some notes. If you enjoy a balanced IPA and find this fresh, get some.

Draft Two Hearted Ale is my favorite beer. Bottled is my second favorite.

Two earted ale is an american india pale ale from the good folks at Bell's.Some might call it their flagship beer. This brew pours out a shade akin to golden brown or amber. Thick 2 finger thick tan head on this beaut. Nose is of citrus and ripe fruit,perhaps some grapefruit.

Tastes exactly how it smells. Probably the only beer i've ever had that does this to a T. Body is medium not too dry. alcohol taste is superbly hidden. Two hearted is a staple in my fridge and always will be.

Do yourself a huge favor and try some today. Cheers.

This is the absolutely one of the best beers out there. Crisp, hoppy (but not overwhelmingly), refreshing and tasty. I haven't found a time or place where this beer isn't exactly what I'm looking to have. It is pretty boozy so be sure to drink responsibly. Simple and clean branding, my favorite design of any Bell's brews I've seen.

If you are looking for a crisp and hoppy beer, start here!
