Bell's Two-Hearted Ale, fresh bottle, only two weeks old. Appearance is a deep rusty orange and some yellow, cloudy, little head and not much lacing but I slipped this one in too. Smells a very out doors like evergreens and citrus, grapefruit, resinous, fir and balsam notes, just appropriate for said-named beer. Bitter hits early, and modulates and sustains for some time. Grapefruit rind bitter and balanced malt sweet, with strong afterglow and terrific echo, staying with the palate. This one, a terrific sipper, goes camping with me. Impossible to emulate, and truly hard to beat...more please.

Amazing smells of grapefruit and piney aromas mixing in with a caramel sweet bready malt.
Slight citrus, blasting with a great grapefruit taste and ending with a piney flavor mixing in so well with the cake and caramel bready malts. It ends with the herbal bitterness that is very crisp and refreshing.

I never thought I'd get this beer but since my family went on vacation in Asheville, North Carolina I was able to try this beer out and wow its definitely worth all the hype. Its like Stone IPA but with a better richer malt bill and the hops mixing in with it to create that deep rich taste.

The pink grapefruit, the herbal piney flavors, the slight citrus all from the centennial hop? Very well brewed beer especially with how amazing the malt bill is with this hop strain. This IPA is one my favorites and I wish I could get this in NJ.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a light amber color with a tiny white head. The head faded quite fast to leave only a very small amount of lacing.

Smell – The smell is very light and consists of some sweet caramel, bread, lighter fruit smells and a citrus hop smell.

Taste – The taste begins on the drier side and is of a light roasted malt with a decent presence of a an citrus hop bitterness. In the middle it sweetness slightly with some flavors of caramel and light fruit coming to the tongue. These flavors are rather short lived however and fade toward the end, where a more sharp bitter earthy and citrus nature come to the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly above higher than average side in terms of creaminess with a medium level of carbonation. Good for the hop flavors as well as for the more bitter and sharp hop flavors.

Overall – Not much sweetness here but very nice and dry. A flavorful and tasty drier IPA with a nice sharp hop and malty base.

Served at Ugly Dog Pub in Highlands, N.C.

Nice golden amber color with white head that lingers well in pint. Lots of sticky lacing.

Smell is pine, tangerine and malt. Just the way an IPA should smell.

Taste is sweet bready malts and funky tangerine and pine. Really nice balance. Good bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation.

Overall this is an excellent IPA.
