Familiar: Similar to Founders centennial IPA, using the same hops, which offer huge grapefruit aroma & Sweetness.
Great With: Korean short rib tacos...the grapefruit notes in the beer compliment the sweet heat of the tacos

"Whether or not you’re already a big fan of IPAs, or you’re looking to give them a try for the first time, you’ll be happy you chose Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale. This American IPA balances its hoppy bitterness perfectly with a malty smoothness to serve up a clean, crisp, and refreshing beer, with an aesthetic to match. Tiny bubbles rise through its sleek amber body to help form a thin, milky head on top. 

"The Ale draws you in at first look, and the pleasant aroma succeeds in distracting from the to-be-expected bitter notes, integrating floral and citrusy notes within it to lighten the intensity, but not the flavor. Unlike many IPAs that are so heavy I find myself casually sipping on them over a longer period of time than I’d prefer, Bell’s offers an IPA that will have you not only satiated, but refreshed, without tasting watered down. The 7% alcohol content will likely have you feeling even better about your selection (and everything else going on), as well. 

Next time you’re at Tap House, or anywhere that offers it, I highly recommend trying Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale.”
