Bell's Brewery, Michigan
Available on draft and in 6-pack 12-ounce bottles
Bell’s Double Two Hearted Ale is made with two and a half times the amount of Centennial hops used in the classic Two Hearted American-style IPA recipe. And the alcohol by volume jumps from 7% to 11%.
In other words, this one goes to a big, boozy 11, with even more intense pine and citrus notes, aromas of resin and grapefruit in the nose, and plenty of caramel malt on the palate to balance the bitterness.
Think cheese or dessert when you’re wondering what to match with Double Two Hearted. Choose strong smoked or washed rind cheeses, and especially farmhouse cheddar or Stilton, or rich desserts like a double chocolate flourless torte or heavy, New York-style cheesecake.
