Bell's Two Hearted Ale

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale (7% ABV) quickly found its way into my own after being first introduced to me at the bar I used to work at. After eight hours on my feet with hardly any breaks, this instantly drinkable American Style IPA always proved capable of providing an excellent nightcap.

Readily available year round, Bell’s Two Hearted Ale is worthy of your favorite chilled pint glass. Arriving with a cloudy amber color and a medium amount of lacy white head, the strong aroma of pine and floral accents are the first thing to hit your senses. After the beer is allowed to settle, its golden copper color opens up into something even more inviting — whether you’re saddled up at the bar on a late night or camping among friends in the open country.

Two Hearted Ale packs a lot of flavor for something so highly drinkable. Notes of pine and grapefuit wash over your palate within the first few sips. As the beer begins to warm, you’ll surely notice the sweeter accented malts that provide the faint creamy caramel tastings. It’s hard to describe how wonderfully balanced this ale is but tasting truly is believing.

The fresh and clean hops throughout Bell’s Two Hearted Ale are reminiscent of newly sprung pine needles. Perfect to pop open any time of year, IPA drinkers looking for something a bit off the beaten path will find something to add to their regular rotation.

Pick yourself up a rustic sixer of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale and go chop some wood or something.
