It pours a hazy golden color. The aroma of the hops is evident from the beginning. It has a nice sweet hoppy taste. It is a very flavorable beer, but a little lighter than the standard IPA. Great beer to drink!

One of the smoothest IPAs that Iíve ever had. Although I thought this was a APA. No kick from the hops. I guess Iíve almost come to expect a bit of a bite from the hops. This beer has been around a while so have IPAs been getting more hoppy? Would be interesting to know how they got such a smooth hop taste. This beer is mostly about the hops, although the malt support is there to make this a very balanced beer

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber pour with a thin ring of white head. Smell: Quite fragrant: hops, floral notes, a little sweetness. Taste: Hops, citrus, grapefruit, orange, malt. Bells two hearted ale has a slightly bubbly mouthfeel with a crisp clean finish that lingers slightly....Plenty of hops throughout! A pretty good IPA, but not among my favorites. I was slightly disappointed with this beer. For all of the press and accolades Bells has been getting recently I really was expecting more from this beer. (It was rated #11 in the best american breweries of the decade 2000-2009) So far with Bells beers Iím 0-2, though I have yet to try the stout. From what Iíve seen so far, Iíd have to say that Bells is as almost as overrated as Dogfish Head.

Floral, citrus (orange, lemon, grapefruit), clover grassy hop with a bitter lingering trace of greenery on the tongue. Fruit bitter. Sweet and flowery smell quick after the pour, fading. Have this with Fish Tacos, and remember that fresh water fish and salt water fish can sometimes live side by side.

Always a treat. Itís golden orange color is very close to what I consider perfect for an IPA. Itís got that undoubtable sweet citrus smell of Centennial. And man, what a well-balanced beer. From start to finish, itís never overwhelming in any direction. Just smooth and clean.

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.

Thick, off-white head, golden color. Aroma is citrus, mostly of lemon and/or grapefruit. Extremely hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. Very tasty.

Bottle. IPAs are not my favorite style, but this is one hell of a beer. Pours a light amber with a nice creamy head. Aroma is definitely pine. Taste of citrus and wonderful hop bitterness. Full bodied and well balanced. Bells really knows what they are doing.
