A very strong beer from Bellís. One of my favorites of this style. Iím fortunate to live near Chicago and have it readily available. If you are in the area it is a must try.

Hands down, a must try IPA if you havenít or if youíre just getting started in craft. This is the beer that launched me into craft beers and has been my go to IPA for 10 years.

Iíve never had a Bellís I didnít like, except the Oarsman, which was still okay, so lets see:
-Pours light amber dark yellow traditional pils color with a two finger white head that does not seem to be going anywhere. Lacing sticks around throughout. Aroma is citrus hops and flower bouquet with a faint fishy something going on.
Medium in the mouth with a heavy strange floral hop, unique kind of IPA approach. Atypical in the fact that itís hitting you with some hop that is not common, and reminds me of tangy fruit like grapefruit but not, a flowery feel like the tang of a dandelion stem, but not. Hard to peg. Flowers and fruit. Little oily in the finish, resolving to hops on the tip and alcohol in the back. I like it. I like Bellís. Bravo, good sirs.

Wow, one of the best IPAís Iíve had in a long time. Will definitely be picking more of this up. hoppy with a very mild bitterness, some citrus, big taste but easy going down. A very smooth easy to drink IPA.

Standard head with minimum lacing. Tropical fruit hop nose. Very balanced malt and hops, immensely drinkable.

Bellsí Two Hearted Ale is a great beer. With Hopslam being a front runner for Bells in the IPA world, this offers a less sweet but still just a hoppy option. It pours to a beautiful golden orange color and has a very crisp hoppy flavor. I think it is similar to Pliny the Elder, in many ways, while Pliny still edges ahead.

Citrus hop flavor with a decent mouth feel for an IPA. I think the first sip is the best with this beer.

Balance. Two hearts combine harmoniously to marry hop and malt. Big hops heavily countered by massive malts constitutes balance, making this very easy to drink. Smells of flowers with a bit of grass. Tastes orangey and light but feels thick and malty with a huge sweetness. Unlike most IPAs, this one finishes sweet with a hint of bitter. Itís like a mandarin orange. Mouthfeel is just right for all day drinking; decent lacing and a mild lingering in the mouth. The flavor that lingers is fruity orange peel, so itís more thatn pleasant. Great beer, well done Bells.

I usually donít get into IPAs like others I know, but this one is an exception. You donít have to get ready for this brew - know what I mean? It pours easy and drinks easy. Not too watery and a fine aftertaste. The beer is crisp and the citrus aspects are tough to ignore. A fine brew.
