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.

Gorgeous beer and a Top 10 IPA for me. It gets everything right and doesn't overdo anything. Very well balanced and delicious. A must get if you've never had. Get some!

Was recommended by a midwestern pal, Finally found some cans in CT. Pours a nice clear, clean looking amber. Thin, fine head. Aroma is simply malt, sweet . Taste is much the same, some caramel, finishing with some moderate bitterness. Flavoring Hops are not shining through. Overall, its a bit plain. I have to imagine its better closer to the source. I like the style generally but its lacking some of the funk and hop presence i expect in every ipa, regardless of style. In the current “nuclear arms race” of ipa hopping, this beer lags behind... But maybe that holds appeal for some.

This beer is always very highly rated, I now see why. Even drinking this beer out of a cardboard coffee cup ( stuck in a hotel room) it really hits you in the nose. The centennial hops are fantastic. A little bit of a excessive bitter aftertaste. But very very enjoyable.

Update: I’ve upgraded to a plastic cup I found in the lobby.
I’m a big IPA guy, and this beer is world class.

I don’t go into a lot of description on beers. I find a lot of the beers I read about, as it should be, very subjective. My taste buds tell me good, bad, great, indifferent or feekin’ amazing. I think that Bells is a destination for me that I hope to get to someday. Two Hearted is a very nice brew and something I would have on hand for friends and ME to drink.
