Two Hearted was one of the first IPAs I tried and enjoyed. I still like it, but having tried many IPAs over the past few years, it does not stand out as it once did. It’s a great beer and I always have some in my fridge, but have gravitated toward some other IPAs that are more hop forward and more bold in terms of citrus, pine and other fruits.

16oz beer that was canned on 2/28/18 and poured into a pint glass. There are strong notes of hops, pine, grapefruit, and a little malt. The beer is a darker orange (darker than most American IPA's out there) but, not too dark. The beer had almost no head and left a nice lacing as the beer was drank further down the glass. Taste is an explosion of flavor, for me this is THE IPA. Grapefruit flavors with a notes of tropical fruit are what I taste. The feel of this beer is perfect, not too carbonated but, just carbonated enough to "pierce your tongue" as they say. Overall this is my favorite IPA, excellent!

Pours a foggy golden orange with each nice eggshell head, very nice lacing. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste follows. Great balance of hops and malt. Good texture and carbonation. A terrific beer.

Poured into a 16oz glass at the pub after a round of 18 holes, and MAN what a beer to have after a game of golf. High ABV to get a good buzz on, solid feel, and an incredible hoppy flavor. Highly recommended

Coming from the home area of the brewery and since moving around the country, I have acquired a wide appreciation for Bell's beers. Two hearted has always been close to my heart since trying it on its inaugral run. I had always thought of it as the beer that changed beers, and years ago I would have given it close to a 5/5! However, since then, IPA's have changed and yes it is still a staple of IPA's, it is not my "go-to". It looks gorgeous poured, and smells/feels beautiful as well. The taste hangs bitter, and I am tasting between a local pour, bottle, and a
