Bell’s Brewery- Two Hearted Ale: Sorry Wes, But This Would Be My Silver Medalist At This Point

I have to admit that I have been very hesitant to try this beer as Wes claims that it is his greatest beer of all time.  I felt it appropriate to give these suds a sip seeing that I have been on an IPA kick and that I would be better to judge it amongst its peers.  After having tried Mendocino’s, Victory’s, Breckenridge Brewery’s, Boulder Beer’s, Flying Dog’s and Dogfish Head’s IPA; I have to say that Bell’s Brewery’s Two Hearted Ale is towards the top of the class.

Bell’s Brewery classifies this brew as an India Pale Ale and their website describes Two Hearted Ale as “India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula.  American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.”

This beer pours a golden/copper color with a hefty 2” cream color head with your standard citrus/hoppy aromas and is a whopping 7% ABV.

I would have to say that it is one of the better IPA’s that I have tried but unfortunately I have to say that I’d prefer a Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA over Two Hearted.  But if there were no 60 minute to be found we’ll then I would have to say that Two Hearted would be my plan B IPA of choice.  This is a great beer that deserves the praise it gets.  Aside from the lame fish head label this is a beer that I would recommend trying regardless of what style you favor.

ABV: 7%

Consumed: Imperial Pint

Verdict: Buy A Twelve Pack
