COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2006 What a beautiful tasting, smelling, and looking beer. The aroma was very citrusy and floraly, flowing into the taste. Ah, delicious.

tasted almost identical to a case of 12oz stone IPA's i bought recently. a beautiful golden color with uncompromisingly dominant hops. and a strong grassy and penny like taste that i've only noticed in the stone too. ?

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2004
Pours a hazy yeast suspended gold with a head looking like whipped egg whites. There is a very floral hop aroma with tiny citrus hints. The flavor from the hops is quite different than what was expected. The same floral hop from the aroma was present in the taste. It was a very clean and almost perfume sweet hop flavor that was not overpoweringly bitter. One of the most interesting hop bills I'v tasted.

I am really beginning to love these hopped up brews. Pours a beautiful orange/golden color with a creamy white head that laces the glass wonderfully. Aroma is very floral and hoppy. Flavor is matching and extremely plesant. I will be making this a regular.

DocLock (8529) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours deep straw colored. 5 for appearance, definitely. Excellent head and lacing. Super hoppy, citrusy, floral, fruity aroma. 10 for aroma. Tastes very hoppy, with nice malt base. Finishes very smooth, with hints of hops, malt, citrus, and perfumy florals, with some Belgian white alishness and sweet candi sugar and fine chardonnay qualities. Super complex. Great beer. Bells is in my top 10 brewers of all time. My second 5.0 rating. Perhaps I put too much emphasis on complexity, but I cannot deduct any points on this one. Awesome!!

Bell's Two Hearted seems to be a favorite amongs mid-west hop heads. In the cask it poured a deep amber color, relativley brite, with no head. The hops burst in aroma however, the hop aroma is very citricy, pungent, like pineapple. The flavor is slightly malty but over powered by the citric hop character. The mouthfeel is somewhat resine like. There is a sweet finish for a nice overall balance. The earthy, vine like hop character is not to my liking. I much prefer a flora hop quality

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2004
Pours cloudy blonde, with an orangish haze and good large head. Bitter, hoppy, floral aroma. Bitter and floral flavors, with some slight citrus. Sort of dry finish. Not bad.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2004
Smells hoppy and floral, though a bit metallic. Pours cloudy golden color, with small cream colored head. Nice lacing. Hoppy, creamy, citrusy, bitter flavor. Dry finish with a little sweetness. Easy and smooth to drink. Overall, a different, yet interesting and crisp IPA.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 4, 2004
A very blonde IPA with a big head. Extreme hop aroma. Very bitter but I expected more from the aroma. Only drawback was the large amount of residual sweetness. It was almost cloying as the beer warmed.

This is one damn fine IPA, the centennial hops just jump right out at you. Quite a bit of yeast on the nose, I wonder if bottle was okay? Fruity, citrusy, even a discernable mango note. nice clean finish in the mouthfeel, some of the hop monsters leave you begging for saliva.
