Poured a hazy medium amber coolor with a snow white lingering head. Heavy lacing. Aroma was a light floral hops with a hint of malt. Sweet very light malt upfront with a pronounced hop bite on the end. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall, an ok beer. I would not buy again as it is mire hoppy than what I prefer.

This IPA is excellent. Super drinkable, mouth-puckeringly good. Pours a semi-clear amber color while smelling of hops with a light malt/citrus smell. Deliciously bitter (oxymoron?) while managing to not be overpowering nor being a complete hop-bomb. This is a very good and well crafted representation of the style and I will DEFINITELY be picking this up again. Like god damn.

Made my own six in a Texas HEB and for the first time I see some Bell's brewery chilling there waiting for me! I just got Two Hearted this time because there were one or two more exciting choices and a LOT of really cheap incredible beers or ones that I hadn't heard of.

Pours an orange gold with a bit of haze into a pint glass. Keeps a thin ring of foam and one-sided, spotty lacing. The smell and taste take this to a whole new level.

Smell is dank, piney, grapefruit, thing wreeks of hops. Taste follows suit with the hoppy bitter, pine, grass, grapefruit, and a floral aftertaste. This beer is pretty crazy good. I very much regret not going ahead and grabbing the full Bell's catalogue available at the store so I could give all their beers a shot.

Maybe you guys across the country are spoiled, but this is super good and deserves the ratings I am throwing at it. The freshness has to have something to do with it, being packaged on 2/21/17. Good shit!

Served in a pint glass. Pours golden with an off-white head that thins and leaves some nice lacing. I would have liked it to be a little darker, as it is a bit pale.

The hop aroma in this beer is just amazing. Floral, citrusy and fruity sweet and strong. The flavor has plenty of bitterness, but it's not over the top, it's nice and balanced with malt. Mouthfeel is dry, leaving you wanting more. It's not overly bitter, so it's very drinkable. One of my new favorites.

Purchased in FL as not available in TN. Poured from 12 oz. bottle.

A: Pours clear, pale orange in color, very thin head. Prefer my IPA's a little hazier than this.

S: Orange peel, pine, grass, and citrus. Nice hop essence.

T: Strong bitter hop bite, grapefruit, grassy. Some grains and malt. Pretty well-balanced. Mild aftertaste that doesn't linger long.

M: Thick and creamy. Somewhat frothy.

O: Overall a pretty decent IPA. I know this is a legend up North but for me it didn't really live up to the hype. Still very good.
