Default Bells Two-Hearted Sub

I have heard wonderful things about Bell's Two-hearted Ale and it has made me really want to try it. Unfortunately, I cant seem to find the damn thing and it is old only in a few Mid-Western States. I decided I was going to make a clone of it, because hell it seems like a simple enough session IPA. I do however not want to spend 2.99 an oz on Centennial hops and am going to do it with part of the pound of Amarillo I have here. Multiple sources said that I could use Amarillo as a sub.

The Recipe:
10 LB US Pale
2 Lb Vienna
.5 lb Crystal 20
.5 lb US Carapils.
All mashed at 153 for 60 minutes.
The hop Cycle:
.5 Amarillo 60
.5 Amarillo 45
.5 Amarillo 30
.5 Amarillo 15
.5 Amarillo 5
.5 Amarillo Flamout
1 oz Amarillo Dryhop in Secondary.
Yeast:
Us-05

My Question is, since I have never had the THA, what should I look like to compare it with tastewise. Regardless I will have a damn tasty beer, does anyone think Ill be close to the actual THA? I got the recipe from both BYO and http://www.brew365.com/beer_two_hearted.php .

I don't have an answer to your question but it's a damn fine beer.. If you can get even close to the real thing you'll be very happy.

Centennial is such a distinctive hop to me. I would have to think this is going to completely different, still a really good beer, but different.

Centennial is $13/lb. at hopsdirect.

Yeah its cheap In pound forms, unfortunately, its not a staple in my brewery and I ordered from hopsdirect really recently. Next time I order I want to get Chinook and Centenial, but for now I only have Cascade, Magnum, Tennnanger, and Amarillo.

To me, centennial and amarillo aren't alike at all. Maybe they are both considered citrusy, but that's where the similarities end. It looks like a good beer, but it won't be at all close to Two Hearted.

FYI, Northern Brewer has a clone called Three-Hearted Ale. A buddy and I each just brewed it, and I'll report back in a few weeks. Coolest thing was that both of our batches had active, bubbling fermentation for 7 or 8 full days. He thought it was weird until mine did exactly the same thing a week later. It smells wonderful, but I haven't tasted it yet.

Not gonna be like Two-Hearted, but I'd brew it (in fact I'm on my third batch of all-amarillo IPA now) and drink it. I love amarillo.

Mind if I ask what yeast you used?

I brewed a PM variation of the OP recipe last weekend and pitched a 1400ml starter of WLP001 into it (1.060 OG, I'm still new at this). Fermentation started within 8 hrs and has been going strong for 4 days now. A good bit of krausen came down thru the blowoff tube as well.

Magnum or Nugget for bittering, centennial for taste and aroma, and for dry hop, or it will not taste like THA.

It may be excellent, but it wont taste like TH.
