In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Bell's Brewery, Inc. Two Hearted Ale

Aroma: “Orange peel, clove, citrus, and fruitcake with a slight earthy grassiness and mild malt biscuit-like sweetness. Some grapefruit, some mango, and pineapple. A little lemon and a little orange are present on the nose with a slight herbal note.”

Flavor: “Spicy rye-like character with hops-driven flavors of orange, mango, and peach. Solid malt structure with substantial body and residual sweetness to keep bitterness in check. Excellent creamy mouthfeel. Big sweetness up front with almost a low caramel note. On the second sip, the sweetness faded, and the malt balanced perfectly with the fruity hops and slight bitterness.”

Overall: “A nicely integrated IPA—the beer delivers a unifying impression of fruit and malt. Rich and juicy hops flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon notes with a bitterness that rounds out the taste. Everything is well-balanced.”
