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 over the years. 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.

keepersj12 (2742) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

ryecatcher (812) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
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.

hoffbier (25) - Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2013
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!

Frozer (131) - Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
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 (590) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (3957) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2013
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.
