Beer... it's not just for breakfast anymore: Bell's Two Hearted Ale




Brewery: Bells Brewery, Inc.
Origin: Kalamazoo, MI
Style: India Pale Ale
ABV: 7%+
Serving: bottle poured

Pours: blonde/"honey orange"... slightly hazy. A nice cream colored head.

Nose: grapefruit and fresh citrus... big floral hop aromas... and a nice mellow "biscuity" maltiness.

Taste: red grapefruit and citrus, spicy hoppiness are all there in the front, and the yeasty/biscuit flavors are right there backing them up the whole time. There is no doubt that this is an IPA.

Drinkability: One of my favorite IPAs. I could drink this all day, if I could find it that often. Super hoppy, moderate carbonation, medium body... smooth, almost creamy and a nice dry finish.

Bell's Two Hearted is regarded as one of the best examples of an IPA that is widely, (this depends on how you define "widely"), available. I would highly recommend it to anybody. If you can find a 6 pack available, grab it. If you can find it on tap... don't hesitate to order.
