Ok, I cheated. I knew what I was going to write long before I marched down to the local store to pick up a six-pack of my beer muse. But I had not had this delightful brew in a while and decided to take a night off from some of these nasty brews I have to drink for the website. Bell’s Two Hearted pours a light orange color, and leaves with a perfect inch of almost whip cream like head. You can smell the very aromatic hops, which have a clean floral aroma, with a slight sweet finish. I promise this smells like no other beer you have ever smelled in your life. This Michigan based beer claims to be inspired by Hemingway's trips to the U.P. to fish. It will probably inspire other brewers to pop a shotgun into their own mouths (Hemingway style) after just one sip.
This IPA’s taste is purely amazing. It has the perfect balance of bitter and crisp IPA hops balanced with a sweet citrus aftertaste. This is an absolute, must try beer. Am I prejudice? Damn right. Is this my favorite beer of all time? Damn right. But let me tell you something. I have drank my share of beers since discovering this brew almost seven years ago and nothing has ever come close to usurping the king. If Budweiser wants to know who the real king or beers is, bow down to Two Hearted bitches. All rise for the real king of beers!
