4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light copper to gold color with a creamy head that dissipates quickly. Smells of light caramel mixed with the scent of mouth watering sweet floral hop goodness. Taste is at first citrusy with grassy-ness with strong bitterness that lingers on the tongue with a very slight alcohol warmth. Nice medium to full bodied mouthfeel. My memory of this beer was more balanced but in reviewing it today the hop bitterness was very prominent. A solid IPA from Bellís that I am sure I will drink many more of.

Bottle. I drank this at a crappy fish shack in Mackinaw, MI. SENSATIONAL IPA! Lemon-citrus odor explodes and wakes up the olfactory. Thick, syrupy body. One of the best beers Iíve ever had.

Two Hearted Ale - Bell's Brewery
7% ABV 55 IBU
APPEARANCE: Pours a hazy slightly cloudy golden straw color. Big huge billowy head that dissipated rather quickly leaving some great lacing patterns.
AROMA: The nose was a bit subdued. Floral notes, summertime dandelions and soft grass. Nice & mellow citrus and pine hops.
TASTE: I get grain and sweet malts up front. Nice citrus wave crashes and releases some grapefruit and tropical fruits. Slight bitterness on the end.
MOUTHFEEL: Light and crisp with medium body and medium prickly carbonation. Dry snappy finish.
OVERALL: Very solid brew. I think of it as a gateway into IPA's. Not a lot of that bitterness that I'm used to but still really enjoyable.
RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!

Poured from a 16oz can into a Duvel tulip glass. Packaged date reads "7/13/2015."
Aroma - Sweet, bright citrus (clementine, semi-ripe orange). Faintly floral. Earth
Appearance - Deep orange-yellow (light amber?). Creamy, white head. Thick lacing rims the top of the glass.
Taste - Sweet, citrusy hops give-way to earthy, resiny hops. Citrus fruit rind also present. Hops, hops, hops. Orange and hop resin flavors linger on the pallet.
Palate - Medium bodied, oily/ resiny at times. Dry finish.
Overall - I short changed this beer when I originally had it. Though the tall boy can is inviting, a glass is much more befitting. Let it breath. Thereís too much citrus not to!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 On tap at a bar in Pittsburgh. Orange colored, hazy, with a small ring of off white head.
Floral aroma with some slight citrus.
Pine and floral notes on each sip with a classic, bitter hoppy finish that you would expect from an IPA

This is a GREAT beer for an IPA lover (or almost anyone for that matter). The only thing I slightly didn't like was the lighter color. This beer pours great, tastes great, leaves a nice head that coats the glass, and keeps you coming back for more.
