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.

The hops flavor of this IPA has an explosive crescendo that turns into a gentle landing with little to no unpleasant aftertaste. I think a better name might be Two Fisted Ale. Other than the gentle aftertaste this beer packs a straight punch of flavor. However, that name wouldnít attract as many customers. I have to give the aroma much lower than everyone else. I tried nearly two six packs before writing this (not all at once!) I just donít get the aroma everyone talks about. This is a first rate IPA and Iíll keep testing it until I do. One last point, Kalamazoo should consider labeling this as an IPA. I only bought it because of the name and the wonderful label.

Not a hop head so this was much better than I had expected. Hoppy but not over the top, beautiful color, aroma but the flavor! Citrus, malt, crisp... a wonderful beer.

smartbrewing (11) - Amelia, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Overall, one of the best IPAs that Iíve ever tasted...super citrusy hoppy aroma leads into an hoppy taste and hoppy finish. Summation: If you like a hoppy beer with a good balanced flavor, then this beer IS for YOU!!! Clean beer through and through. My favorite Bellís beer...try a bottle, you wonít regret it.

Medium head quickly disappears..almost no lace. Not a lot of mystery to this one...loaded with hops. This beer presents a floral taste accompanied by bitterness thoughout. Strong lemon flavor. Beers that offer the combination of bitterness and high alcohol levels score well here - this one will rank high.

killtuba (11) - Burke, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2008
In my top five - and I love IPAs. This beer manages a unique flavor while staying true to the style. Great color, deep amber with a hint of orange, slight citrus taste and great hops flavor through the finish.

Very much reminds me of Bellís Hopslam with a little less kick to it. Floral hoppy aroma, with a nice smooth finish. This is very well balanced and a very enjoyable beer. I will be buying it again.

Nose is hoppy with grapefruit, lemon slightly metallic. Taste of citrusy hops. Nice bitter long finish.

Rapidly becoming my favorite beer. Very flavorful, in perfect balance, and light, crisp and refreshing. Perfect for throwing beanbags on a warm summer afternoon. 7% alcohol will warm you up on a cold winter day of icefishing as well!

On tap as usual, pours a very nice yellow-orange color with a nice white cream head. The smell is a strong citrus with a big hop presence. Taste is incredible citrus, lemon zest with a mild pine finish. Great lacing on the glass through the whole beer. The mouth fell is like BANG here are your hops, but yet so easy to drink. This is one of my favorite IPAís if not my number one. I always find myself buying this keg after trying all the rest; this is the go to IPA!!!!!

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 This beer is just as good as it is potent. Bells Two hearted really has a great full bodied taste and a nice herb infused hoppy aroma. It is a nice dark gold and leans more to the hazy appearance. the taste is more of a medium-heavy bitterness. again infused with the more earthy or herbal tastes. I am very satisfied with this beer, and drinking ingeniously here in WI is what i love to do. Sconnie beers are some of the best in the world.
