3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

Poured on tap into a pint glass. Nice head with citrus and pine aroma. Typical bitterness of an ipa. Has a stale aftertaste that hangs around after each sip.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice sticky head over hazy amber body. Aroma of pine, grass, and oxidation. Taste of upfront bitterness and very oxidized. Full bodied and fairly clean otherwise. Palate not as bitter as expected, but that might be an age thing.

Lot 2552 - 12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Cloudy amber appearance with a small beige head.
Aroma of grassy and piney hops, a bit stale, and some caramel.
Juicy hop flavors, though not super fresh, with sweet maltiness and med-hi bitterness. Some nuts and marmalade notes.
Medium body, dry, pretty balanced and can be awesome when fresh.
