Notes/Commercial Description:
Heavy Handed IPA is brewed to celebrate the harvesting of the hops every year. Within moments of harvest we add freshly picked "Wet Hops" to this IPA. Since the hops have not been dried before use, they add a wonderful character found in no other beer. A hop lovers dream. (Available September through December) Each batch is "single hopped" with a different hop variety.

Super solid no nonsense IPA
Great balance with a kick of bitterness at the back end

Im having this one for the first time, and I'm a little surprised Heavy Handed isn't rating in the 90's. Great beer.
Pours well, tastes excellent and finishes very nicely. This is a very good IPA. Unsurprising coming from Two Brothers.

Floral citrus nose. Pours brilliant amber under a 1" finely bubbled snow white foam cap that produces thick lace. Good balance between hop and nutty, light malt flavors with an herbalness from the fresh hops on the finish that provides drying and a slight astringency and a light pepper taste. Very creamy body with fine soft carbonation.
