An off-white head sits atop a hazy yellow-orange brew. Smells of malts, subtle grapefruit and herb. Tastes grainy at the forefront, followed by some earthy hops, a dollop of sugar and a mild fruitiness. Smooth and light to medium bodied. Has a slightly creamy core, but remains dry overall. Not exactly what I was expecting form this one, but it drinks fairly well, so I can't complain too much.

This beer pours a clear gold color with a thin head and no lacing. The aroma is of lemons with faint hints of grapefruit and caramel. The flavor is an odd mix of mild grapefruit, lemons, very sweet malt, and bread. There's a bit of Ginger Ale hiding in the background. As it warms any complexity fades and bitter hops come through. It's mouthfeel is medium. Bells Two Hearted Ale is an ok beer, slightly recommended.

Two Hearted Ale pours a hazy, burnt orange color and is capped by a big frothy white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Pine and citrus aromas explode from the glass and are underlined by hints of tropical fruit and a slight malt sweetness. Grapefruit, pineapple, and orange flavors meet a nice malt backbone before finishing with a somewhat piney flavor. Medium body and medium-light in carbonation, Two Hearted Ale is very well balanced and a great example of what an IPA should be.
