(draft) This seems to be a favorite, but I just donít get it. The smell of old socks was just too much for me. I couldnít finish the glass.

Thanks to slikwily for this. Great IPA with fresh bread maltiness with a sharp finish. Hazy gold with a long lasting rocky white head. Citrus hop notes in the nose with some resin. Very nice.

This one comes trade with Indra. Two Hearted IPA is terrific. Definitely one of the top 3 Iíve had. Hoppy, citrusy, big flavor, great malt. Bellís stock in my opinion is a high riser. Started with a bad one and the rest just keep making me rethink my first impression of this brewer.

Hazy amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is hops/grapefruit and inviting. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation and a biting feel in the mouth. Flavor was citric and sweet and very refreshing. Excellent.

Very tart. grapefruit notes in the flavor Well-carbonated; aroma of clean hops but is a bit faint. Not quite the reddish color or highlight that I associate with the style. Decent, not great.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2004 WOW! Quite possibly my favorite IPA as of yet. Pours a beautiful orange haze with a decent head of slightly off-white. Flavor is all citrus and pine hopped up to next friday. Having been said, also a very well balance beer, not too hoppy, not too malty, just right!

Thanks to CaptainCougar for this one! This was milder but very well balanced IPA. A very floral, pine, and citrus aroma. The flavor on this defines balances. A very soft mouthfeel with some oranges, lemons, and grapefruit. Bells simply kicks ass! I canít wait to try more.

Pours a hazy orange color with an average white head. Aroma is floral with hops. Flavor is earthy hops. I was expecting this beer to knock me off my feet, but it did not. Still an above average IPA. I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Cloudy, dirty orange-colored beer with a stellar foamy head. Nice pungent earthy aroma. Bountiful floral flavors -- orange rind tartness and spice. Beautiful beer.
