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.

Bottle from Archer Liquors. Reddish copper color with a decent beige head. Aroma of resin. Medium body with fine carbonation. Flavor is lots of hop - not just pine - over lightly roasted malt. Goes through a number of things - floral - sweet - bitter into the finish. Leaves a nice hoppy ending, but not super bitter. Really good ale.
