Bell’s Two Hearted Ale is an amber orange colored beer with a pronounced off-white head. With a serious hop aroma, intense flavor and lighter finish, this is a great IPA. gunsho (134) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 30, 2008
one of the best ipas made in the country. this beer is crisp and delicious. notes of coriander citrus, and beautifully floral hops. i reach for it often. ebrowner88 (123) - Rice, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2008
Pours hazy gold with a 1 finger head. Nose is of rasins and spruce and then spruce and raisins .... and hops. Taste is a fruity (almost grapefruit but not quite) folowed malty sweetness and then by hoppy bitterness. I am not a pale ale guy but I can appreciate the work that went into this. It is extremely well thought out in it’s complexities. It is hard for me to get over the spruce nose when I take a sip. That being said, if you are of the IPA loving community, this beer would be the cat’s ass. peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2008
Bottle from batch 8271, bought @ Knightly Spirits in Orlando and brought back to UK by good friend. Poured a lovely golden colour, with a good head and lively body. Lovely hoppy taste with a touch of sweetness. Not quite as ’ in your face’ as some of the very heavily hopped USA beers I’ve tasted but none the worse for that. An excellent beer.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 Poured a bright orange with a dense 2-finger foamy head that lingered for ages and left very good lacing. The slightest swirl sends the head back up to a finger. Nice. The fruits leapt out of the bottle at me - oranges, grapefruits, lemons, etc. A slight piny, grassy scent could be detected under the floral fruits, as well as a slightly sweet malt base. Clean, crisp taste that was dominated by the floral and citrus side of things. Quite a zing on the taste buds. I caught a little bit of the malt in the background, but not much. Zesty. Medium bodied with a decent clean finish with only the slightest bitterness in the aftertaste. This is a great example of an IPA, though it was probably a litle bit on the fruity side to be in my top few IPAs. Nonetheless, a well crafted brew from Bells.

Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, batch 8427. Cloudy orangeish amber color with a medium head and decent lacing. Sweet and citrusy hop aroma. Bitter and piney hops are nicely balanced. pforei (338) - USA - JUN 19, 2008
Bottle from Foodery. Light amber with good head, retention and some lacings. Grapefruit/pine hops and caramel malt in the aroma. Fruity taste that is complex without being ovberdone or everly bitter. Real easy to drink, great session beer althoug the ABV is a little high. slipy120 (81) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Pours light brown with a very light tan head. This beer is very hoppy with a very hoppy aftertaste. Tastes like a double IPA. Me not being a fan of IPAs did not particulary care for it but if you love hop infused beer you will like this. kieleszd (83) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Cask conditioned at Graydon’s Crossing. Creamy head with perfect balance of malt and hops. The two hearts must come from two different beer enthusiasts: hop/malt, because it cares a very even tone throughout yet encompasses everything a beer ought to be. Drink it!

12oz Bottle: Pours cloudy golden w/ a small biege head. Aroma is delightfully hoppy w/ some sweet malts peeking through. Flavor is of piney hops w/ a hint of sweet malts fading into a light bitter finish. Body is rich & creamy. Quite enjoyable, nice beer.
