Two Hearted Ale® Clone - I Heart IPA (Extract)

Two Hearted Ale® Clone - I Heart IPA (Extract)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

An amazing IPA derived from one of our favorites, the I Heart IPA is a true Centennial hop bomb!  Using Centennial as the bittering, aroma, and dry hop additions gives you a true understanding of how incredible and universal this hop can be.  

Light in color and body, the malt character hides a little, allowing the burst of Centennial flavor and aroma shine.  Our Bell's Two Hearted clone recipe has a slightly lower original gravity than the original.  Coming in at right around 6% ABV, this isn't one of those IPAs that will make you shy away from a second!  

  • Makes 5 gallons
  • Estimated Original Gravity: 1.058-1.062
  • SRM (Color Range): 5-7
  • Estimated IBUs: 45-48
  • Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 5.8%

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.

Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet.

I tried this one time before using SafeAle #5 dry yeast and it turned out well. It is a good choice to see if you like this specific hop variety since it is hoped at 5 stages with a single type.

Made this for my wedding two years ago... Big hit!

Tasty summer beer
My wife and friends enjoy IPAs so thought I'd give it a try. Wow. I was surprised at the flavor and enjoyed it as much as they did, and I usually prefer stouts. General consensus is that it's very drinkable and it's now our favorite to home brew.

Great beer
This beer is awesome. Stands up against some of the more known IPA's (Sanit Arnold's DIPA). Brew this. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5
Finished carbonation of this beer about 3 weeks ago. I had a triple batch going including the pale ale II, and the honey ale. I bottled them all about the same time. My first thoughts are that its very easy drinking but I was disappointed that I wasn't able to get more hop aromas out of the dry hopping phase. I had it in there for about 5 days. I expected more of the centennial citrusy floral but it might just need to sit and mellow. Im certainly a fan of it so far, I am looking forward to tasting this beer as it ages a little. It doesn't need to age for reasons of any alcohol taste, it finished around 6%, but maybe as it settles I will be able to appreciate other flavors that haven't developed. I also noticed a kind of bummer, comparing this to the Pale ale II, I noticed that the pale ale actually has more hop character than this beer both in bitterness and aroma. I still recommend giving it a try to anyone interested.
