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.

On draft at the St James Tavern in Columbus. Gorgeous pour; heavenly bouquet. This beer is dripping with hops: juicy, flowery, grapefruity hops. In Bells, the Midwest has a genuine treasure!

Two Hearted ale is a great ipa and perfect example of what to look for. The hops balance well with the malts to provide and easy going beer with the right amount of bitterness.

Pint Can. The American style IPA. Floral and citrus on the nose with a perfect off white foamy head that shows a hazy golden color in the glass. Great balance between hops and malts. All of the citrus, pine, and resin you expect with an IPA and some malt smoothness. Creamy texture that finishes dry without a lingering bitterness. Love this beer anytime of year.

Strong hop aroma, delicious golden brown almost bronze color, clear and pristine texture, perfect balance of hops to provide a slight bitter after taste, minimal carbonation leading to limited foam and head at the top of pint glass. In my opinion one of the best if not the best IPA.

Average ipa. Mild in all typical ipa aspects. Hops a bit bland and boring. Drink a few decent west coast ipas and this one is very forgettable. Also, overpriced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good IPA, nice flavor, not too strong/overpowering of an IPA, 7%, nice orange color! Easy to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2093) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 26, 2014
Can from Binny’s South Loop drunk at Kitano Tenmangu in Kyoto. It pours a nice glowing copper-orange with a big fluffy beige head. The aroma is juicy grapefruit and bitter pine. The taste is similar with grapefruit, guava/mango tropical fruitiness then a bitterness evocative of pine that slowly creeps up on you. The finish is also quite sharp/crisp. Well done. Possibly served a bit too warm...

JBPortland (814) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 24, 2014
12oz bottle pours clear dark orange with 1 finger head. Nose is round fruity light pine and floral citrus, malty. Taste is round malt forward, well balanced citrus and floral grassy hops. Finish is bitter malt and some moderately juicy orange and citrus. Pretty decent but not really sure what the fuss is about...

This beer ROCKS! Bells is among my favorite. Two Hearted is similar to Schlafly Pale Ale, but better. Goes great with big burgers and grilled red meat! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good. Mild malt with slight bitter floral hop finish. Pretty good, but over rated for the style

Poured into Spieglau IPA glass. Orangish-copper with a beige foamy and creamy head. Deep grapefruit citrus aromas lead the charge with resiny back notes. Crisp and clean bitterness on the palate with a light-medium body and medium to high carbonation. Good but IMO doesn't hold up to some of the ratings I've seen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
