Default Two-Hearted Ale Clone Recipe... Hop Question

I'm going to brew the Northern Brewer Dead Ringer extract kit soon. I have never brewed it before but love the commercial version. The recipe calls for only centennial hops. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is the same hop profile as the Bells Two Hearted that it is based off of. The recipe calls for:

1 oz @ 60 mins
1 oz @ 20 mins
2 oz @ 5 mins
1 oz dry hop

Has anyone brewed this recipe kit with other hops? How does it currently compare to the commercial version?

Here is a very popular clone recipe from the HBT data base.
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/bell...ey-come-91488/

For all practical purposes the hop additions are almost identicle. So I'd say yes this hop profile fits the Bells Two Hearted profile.

If you change the hops you may very well have a tasty beer, but it will no longer be in the Bell's style.

Bells is all Centennial. I thought that the hop schedule for the Dead Ringer kit was okay but I upped the bittering addition a little and moved the 20 minute to 15.

It's better than Bell's, probably, because the aroma is going to be so improved by your dry hopping.

Zymurgy magazine had a different clone recipe. It is in this thread a little ways down.

dead ringer is pretty "dead on" numbers are not that far off. great beer either way. Bells uses their own yeast so to get the exact beer , you wont. dead ringer is pretty close

I'd go with the recipe from here:
http://seanterrill.com/2010/06/28/tha-cloning/

He is one of the more scientific brewers out there, and if he says his results are identical, I'd believe him. I'm going with his recipe when I try it next month.
