3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 From the tap and it is good. Canít wait to have more. It outdistances many brews. Bells gets it right on this one. Aroma, taste, citrusy, all superb.
Update: I bought a six pack because I hadnít had a tha in a while, so it was a no brainer to buy some.
There was little lacing and the flavor was lacking the important components. I wasted 12 dollars on bad brew. You canít win them all.
A new six pack was purchased and the same great ipa flavors with decent lacing. Two Hearted has good days and bad days, I spose.
Had to lower the rating due to inconsistent quality. I will give them a break and the benefit of the doubt.
Tough to beat Crooked Tree IPA from Dark Horse. Stone IPA is a great brew. Firehouse Union Jack IPA is one fine brew too.

270116. Bells Brewery is fast becoming one of my favourite breweries and if they keep producing beers like this then it will quickly jump to the top of the list. There is a lot of butterscotch and fresh cut flowers in the aroma of this beer and in the mouth it is smooth and malty with butterscotch and caramel coming through. Awesome beer that I bought from Beer Cartel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #1587 - 22.03.2015 - On tap at the Commons ale house in Santa Monica, it figures that live closer to this brewery and they have distribution in Cali. Pours a rich golden amber, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is orange zest, tangerine. On the palate, similar tropical flavours, mild resin, mild pine needle. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced.

Amber color with a minimal white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly malty. Taste is nicely balance with the hops coming through just enough to say this is not your average IPA. Well done!

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too much bittering hop for me. Nice classic piney aroma with good malt, nice color. But the taste is just too bitter to be a great IPA. This is like an OG style IPA that gained prominence 5-10 years ago. Now things have moved toward more fruit, more pungent aroma, new types of hops. I think it turns out I just never liked this style of IPA.

The beer has a copper/amber color with a medium head. Aroma has a lot of fruit like mangos and some pears. Taste has a lot of fruit for an IPA. There is a tropical taste up front followed with some malts and a mild bitterness. Great balance and beer.

I think I broke my palate for IPAs. A "well balanced" IPA comes across as overly-malty to me. I like the aroma a little more than the taste. Still a nice beer, just not what Iím looking for in an IPA right now.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber to copper in color with a good light tan head. Intense mandarin/peach aroma. Wonderful lacing in glass. Good carbonation and light mouthfeel. Strong citrus flavor with slight bitterness. More of a refreshing IPA without the drying bitterness of most IPAs. Lasting finish balanced of sweet and bitter. On a personal note I really enjoy this beer on its own or with a meal. Slightly higher ABV, but not overpowering alcohol.
