serious discussion of the finest IPA's produced in America would be
incomplete without including Bell's Two Hearted Ale. This dry-hopped, 7%
alcohol by volume, orange colored brew decants nicely and produces a thick
foamy head as well as a persistent Brussels' lace. The nose is really big,
all hops, and screams Centennials at you. The palate is dominated by the
hops as well, there's a powerful grapefruit character that grabs your tongue
and slowly fades to a truly awesome bitterness in the finish. You won't find
balance here, the malt doesn't stand a chance. Certainly one of the most
intensely hoppy beers I've ever tasted. It's a sheer delight for hop lovers,
and is just another incredibly bold beer from Bell's.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
