In this beer blog, we are going to get into the flagship beer of Bell’s Brewery. It is their Two Hearted IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Midwest craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy citrus notes. The taste has a carbonation citrus with a dry bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.bellsbeer.com):
Bell’s Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.

In the end, I have no idea why everyone goes nuts over this beer. It is a good IPA but it is not best one. Every bar that I go into now it is always on draft. I am sorry there are some other IPA’s. I try not drinking this beer to send a message. I had this time to revisit it. I have to say it is not my favorite IPA but I can respect it. Is this the best IPA? To me, Hell No! There are better IPA’s on the market. I recommend it. I am pretty sick of looking at it now. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
