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.

12 oz bottle into a Tulip glass. Thanks to asteele8 for this one! This one pours a beautiful hazed and clouded golden orange with a retentive white head that succombs to the rim of the glass. The aroma is exactly what I love out of a well crafted IPA: pines, pineapples, grapefruit citrus, a bit of honey, and bread. The flavor starts off sweet with a bit of malt and then gets progressively more IPA from there. Pine needles, lots of grapefruit citrus notes, a bit of oranges, and bitter hops continue to glow on the palate all the way through the finish. A tiny bit of yeast is present in the body. A very velvety feel in the mouth, this one is moderately carbonated, but SMOOTH at the same time. A nice hop presence lingers on the palate for a good moment after the sip. A seriously damn good IPA here folks!

Bellís Two Hearted Ale 12 oz bottle Packaged 11/06, fished out 12/06 Moderate pour in a tulip glass. Poured a clear amber with an average white frothy somewhat lasting head with layered rings of lacing denoting my sip timeline. Smelt of strong oily pine resin, grapefruit rinds, fish, light peaches, strawberries, and sweet bread. Taste was upfront medium strong bittersweet spruce and moderate bitter and sour grapefruit followed by a moderate bitter and skunky and fishy resin taste on a long peach and spruce finish. Palate was medium bodied, creamy, softly carbonated, and lightly astringent. Overall, a very satisfying soft yet hearty IPA. Excellent flavors, and well balanced in its flavor profile. Iíve nothing bad to say really. Itís just good.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish color with a fat off white jead. Aroma is sweet and piney from the hops. Taste of hops and citrus that starts slightly bitter but finishes with a bit of fruity sweetness. A nice all around beer!

Tap and bottle. Looks like a murky lake with the sunn shining on it. Tastes like a mixture between a flower and fruit garden. Though itís been said already, itís a very well balanced beer that goes down smooth with a strong grapefruit aftertaste.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2006
(Bottle) Pours an orangy tan with a large white head. Nice hoppy aroma, with more citrus than I expected. Lemon and grapefruit notes really shine through in this beer. Dry and moderately bitter. Full mouthfeel. A good offering from Bellís.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Pours a light yellowish brown with a small, white head that lingers. Aroma is strong and hoppy, with herbs. Parsley and grass, smells delicious. The flavor is a lot more subdued, but still very hoppy, with grapefruit and orange at the front. Thereís some earthy herbal flavor as sips go through, and the beer finishes with more grapefruity bitterness. This brew is spectacular. Pungent, hoppy aroma, and smooth, drinkable flavor.
