Editor’s 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. We encourage users to note the vintage and varietal in their rating, but more often than not, most raters won’t know this information without researching it.

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.

ThreeCats (529) - ISRAEL - JUN 18, 2013
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.

2012 Lot 2552-Centennial Cloudy amber-brown with a short, yellow-tan head. Aroma is bitter grapefruit peel/sweet fruit pulp. Taste is tasty, caramel, peel... Syrupy with a good, floral bitter. Pretty good.

beerandbeyond (625) - ISRAEL - JUN 1, 2013
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.

pablo951 (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Had it out of a bottle, poured well with a yellow head and long lasting lacing evenly around the glass. Notes of Caramell and malts lives up to its name heavy-handed.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Bouteille 12oz, courtoisie de Hogtownharry ou Blankboy. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et claire. Nez de houblon résineux, légèrement floral et aux notes citriques (pamplemousses) et herbeuses, fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots) et malté de grains sucrés avec des notes caramel doux. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux petites notes aqueuses. Goût amer de houblon floral, légèrement citrique et aux notes terreuses (qui dure toute la gorgée avec une amertume qui diminue légèrement au fil de la gorgée) avec un goût fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots et de mangue) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de caramel sucré puis en finale, le houblon reprend le dessus en étant plus sec, plus herbeux, et moyennement résineux. Post-goût long et un peu sec, amer de houblon moyennement résineux et herbeux avec des notes citriques ainsi qu’avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes).

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Lot #2612 (Cluster - Field #1): Slightly hazy copper coloured body with an amber glow and a light ruby shine and a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pine, resin and a bit of pineapple with some good malt note and a hint of nuts. Medium-bodied; Assertive resinous and syrupy feel with a lot of pine, pineapple, honey and a bit of earthy flavours. Aftertaste shows some nice hoppy flavours with a bit of syrup and honey, a little earth and a good balance of hops and malt - more like a traditional IPA and not like a West Coast IPA at all. Overall, a nice beer and definitely worth trying if you can find it - not overloaded with hops, but a good balance for sure and nice to sample. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$2.79 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 19-January-2013.
