3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Billed as Heavy Handed #2. Dark hazy copper pour. Slight tan foam head. Rich sugar plum flavors. Darkly sweet without being cloying so. Barley sugar. Burnt orange peels. Thick palate. Not overly complex, but a great combo.

Willamette. Dark Amber Color, Medium Head, Decent Lacing. Not much of aroma, very faint floral notes, barely traces of pine hop. Malty, Sweet, Pine, Hop Bitter. Medium Body, Wet Finish. Really Nice. Enjoyed It. Recommended.
Centennial #2. . Dark Clear Copper Color, Medium Foamy Head, Decent Soapy Lacing. Faint Floral Hop Aroma. Malty, Sweet, Pine, Hop Bitter. Wet Finish. Really Nice. Enjoyed it. Although this Willamette and this one are very similar, I prefer the first one. Since Comparison was not done side by side at the same time it is hard to pin point the differences. Nonetheless , both are Nice. Recommended....

My bottle had Centennial #2 on it. The aroma was bread and malt with a bit of caramel. The flavor had a nice malt sweetness balanced with a good bit of hops.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber, decent head and retention. Nose is a big dose of floral hops, orange peel maltiness hiding behind it. Mouth is a decent bouquet of hoppy bitterness until the grainy malts kick in (typical of Two Bros.) and ruin an otherwise worthy effort.

From 12oz. bottle Centennial #1. Always look forward to the wet hop beers more than the pumpkins. Pours a copperish color with nice head. Aroma is floral dominated. Taste is a balanced IPA with a nice hop bittered finish. Thank you hop growers!
