Editorís Note: All Two Brothers Hop Varietal releases of Heavy Handed are kept seperate due to a lack of ability for the average consumer to distinguish these brands.

badwhale (369) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a clear amber color. Nice nose of some citrus and floral notes. A bit more malty than Iíd like for an IPA. Still, good flavors of floral hop flavors. Heavy malt backbone.

naivepegasus (338) - USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a hint of ruby with a half a finger of slightly off white, slowly dissipating but not overly foamy head. Not much aroma, just a really faint hop smell. Despite the odor, surprisingly strong taste. Starting off with caramel taste, it then sort ends with a slight hop bitterness. This is actually a very well balanced beer, and the hops arenít overwhelming but the flavor is quite good.

ChrisFields (71) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Centennial #2. Pours a nice deep copper with a good off white rocky head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Taste is tangy pine resin with citrus undertones. Sweet malt backing with a crisp hop bitterness. Medium bodied and mildly carbonated. Drinks easily. Overall I like this one. It would be nice to try the different hop varieties used in this side by side, but all I could find were the #2 Centennial.

DialSquare (2756) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2013
12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Deep amber pour with a good sized off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, biscuits and citrus. Tastes are bready, floral, grass, sweet malts, little earthy, light spices. Little oily, moderately bitter, easy drinking.

sawbuck (341) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Average aroma of hops....mostly floral....hint of alcohol. Amber in color....darker than anticipated...tan head. First taste is a mixture of very sweet malt and hop bitterness. Malt is stronger than bitterness until the finish. Finish is a bit too long and overpowering.
