Beer in Review LIVE: Bell's Two-Hearted Ale

I'm already logged in and writing, so let's have a beer!

Bell's Brewery makes one of my favorite beers in their Oberon Ale, a REALLY tasty wheat beer. I recently picked up a four-can pack of Two Hearted Ale, their American-style IPA.

A golden-orange color, and translucent, this is an excellent APA/IPA. The taste starts out with some definite hop flavor, but not a whole lot of bitterness. There is some bite as the taste progresses, but this is tempered by mild fruity flavors. Underlying through out the entire drink, and especially notable at the end, is a significant malt presence. The body isn't super big, but the beer is crafted so as to be a sipping beer, certainly something to be savored, not downed quickly--a sentiment that matches a beer that is so well-executed.
