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.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Light honey gold color with a fine white head with excellent of retention. Lots of fresh hop aroma that suggestes sweetness--though not from the malt. Light malt profile is very well integrated with fruity, citrus (lemon, grapefruit) hops flavors. Body is quite light on its feet--balancing all flavor characteristics and producing a highly flavorful, refreshing, powerful IPA. Sidenote: wins my award for coolest beer lable.

A nice, hoppy beer. Pours a dark gold with little head. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is hop forward, but I think it has some nice balance to it as well. If youíre looking for a hoppy beer, itís hard to beat bellís two hearted.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2005
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.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Lighter colored malts used in this very intriguing IPA. Had a very nice head with lots of lace and pleasing yellow gold color. Very pronounced fresh hop aroma and flavor with a points of sweetness to set it off. Nicely carbonated and great mouth feel. Had this on draft at Bodega. Canít wait to have another.

Zeswaft (1343) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Golden yellow with good head, but nasty yeast. Outstanding flavor. Has a sweet syrupy grass-like flavor reminiscent of three floyds dreadnaught.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Had two on tap at Bennoís... feel comfortable with this rating. Cloudy bright orange/yellow body, white creamy head with excellent lacing. Aroma was mostly citrusy lemon hops, but not as much malt. Same with the flavor. It tastes like what I imagine hop candy would taste like. The hops were mostly a bright citrusy thing, but almost stale (but not old stale... maybe some underlying complexity that adds this flavor, like yeast perhaps). The sweetness is there to to make it palatable, but this is all about the hops. Quite a delicious elixir.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Pours similar to the Stone Brewing IPA with a cloudy orange and very creamy head. The head is great and has a very good lacing to it. The aroma is apparent as soon as you open the bottle. It consists of citrus orange, hops, graitfruit and peach. Re-rate- Had this at Barcade last night. I didnít realize how good this is the first time I had this. Maybe I had a bad bottle or something because this was great the second time around. Similar to the Stone IMO.

Bottle. Dark amber color with medium rocky head. Crisp aroma of hops and malt. Good complex flavor with strong finish. Another very good Bells brew.
