Two Hearted, one of the best all around IPAs
A Review of Two Hearted Ale by Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Posted on 4/3/2011 by Chops
In all honestly, I will readily admit that there are many higher quality IPAs out there. To me, Bell's Two Hearted Ale doesn't drink like an IPA. It strikes me more as a straight Pale Ale with no overwhelming hopiness, the prime characteristic of an IPA. So when I say that this is one of the best all around IPAs, what I really mean to say is that it is one of the most solid Pale Ales I have ever tasted. I just have to call it an IPA because Bell's does. :)

Bell's Two Hearted Ale has become a staple in my refrigerator. Ask any beer fanatic and they will give you a short list of beers they will always have chilling in the back of the fridge. It's that whole ''you have one minute to decide, no browsing, what are you going for'' question. This one is always at the top of my list. I enjoy it equally as much in the peak of summer as I do in the dead of winter. It's my anytime beer.

So why do I love it so much? In a word: balance. Everything about this beer is in perfect harmony. The aroma is crisp and sweet, which compliments the clean citrus taste, which sits lightly on your tongue, which lingers delightfully in your mouth as if you just bit into an orange. Equally pleasurable up front and on the finish, there is absolutely nothing about this beer I don't love.

Course, we are talking about Bell's Brewery. These guys are incapable of making a bad beer. There are very few breweries out there today with a 100% batting average, and Bell's is one of them (as far as I'm concerned). It's really nice knowing that no matter what is in the bottle, as long as Bell's is on the label, I'm going to enjoy it.

I have also provided an informative video from our friends over at Better Beer. They also did a review on the Two Hearted Ale and made a table discussion out of it. Enjoy!
