Too bitter for my taste. Not my first choice but not bad!

I enjoyed this beer at the Detroit Executive Forum The Science and Business of beer. This is my favorite Bell's product as it has a nice after taste and isn't too hoppy.

I love bells two hearted. It's what I went through college drinking. It still brings back memories to me from 15 years ago!

20 oz. Can Canned on 9/24/18. (Shelf life: 6 months) opened on 11/26/18

Pours out looking Amber and gold, tight, creamy and frothy suds, off white color. Amazing retention. Sticky-icky lacing left overs.

The smell of the 100% Cenntenial hops dominates the nose. Super sweet & fruity, strawberry pie, creamy tropical pineapple and hearty, herbalized earthy tones make for a very unique and bold aroma. Pretty sure the amber-style malt brings in more honey style sweetness in a subtle way.

This comes across as a much more "balanced" west coast style IPA in the flavor profile overall. Earthy, citrus, some laid-back pineapple and tropical fruit flavors from the Cenntenial-only hops. Herbal and hearty effects deep down with a mild but dry hoppy finish. The malt is medium to full, Amber sweetness of honey soaked dark bread does provide a classic, strong backbone for some old-school balance.

I cannot believe it's taken me this long to review such a classic IPA. A friend purchased it today, and I'm so glad he did.

Had the beer on tap at a local music club. The beer was a little bit murky with an amber color and a nice thin white head with lacing on the sides. Good aromas of hops, dark fruit, and pine. The flavor was generally bittersweet thanks to a good malt flavoring. Medium body; good balance of creaminess and carbonation. Overall, a good, solid IPA.

A bit of flavor to this, beyond the expected hops. Kind of a sweet, subtle note to it. This is a nice cap to my Hay Camp tasting day as I sit down to a burger at Buffalo Wings & Rings. Sweet fruit tartness making way to hops in the aftertaste. Don’t drink fast, enjoy the flavor. 2018/11/18
