Poured a medium, cloudy orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of grapefruits, citris and flowers. Tastes of oranges, grapefruit, pine and malt. Has a nice sweet and bitter balance. Very good. Thanks to goldtwins for trading me this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 Rerate 10/21/03: After getting a sixer of Two Hearted this year, I have to bump the score up. This really is a top of the line IPA. 09/29/02 (3.8):There's hops it that there beer! This was a 'guest tap' at Barley's brewpub here in Columbus, and although I usually find it wrong to try beers outside of the brewpub where I am drinking, I'm glad I made an exception here. Cloudy orange color with a thin head. Strong hoppy, floral aroma. Hops dominate the flavor as well, bordering on the extreme. This beer will definitely keep your attention. Take a whiff of one of these during a boring meeting and you'll wake right up. You'll probably get fired but you'll be awake.

I haven’t had this in a while, it was the first IPA I really loved. It is nice and citrusy with a medium to low bitterness.

Yeah this is a top notch IPA...Bells does it AGAIN. Beer pours a slightly cloudy golden/orange color with a medium white head. Aromas are hops, pine, and more hops! Flavor is delicious. Hoppy, faint hints on honey, light malt notes, perfect carbonation. Best IPA I have ever had I do believe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Lime, tangerine, and pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-amber with moderate head and nice lacing. Sligntly sweet tangerine flavor quickly followed by moderate pine hops. Strange finish - after swallowing get a watery slightly metallic taste with pine hops returning a few seconds later. Nice that its flavor isn’t the typical orange grapefruit.
