A) poured from a 750ml bottle into a glass a rusty hazy color, a nice 1.5 finger head with astonishing lacing.

S) great bouquet, a nice sweet malt with super enticing hop aroma that smells a but like super ripe peaches

T) much like the aroma, very sweet malt balanced by the hops that retain their fruitiness but also have a nice bitterness. Wonderful finish that perfectly rides the line between sweet and bitter. Lip smacking good!

M) good thickness, nice oily feel from the hops, scary drinkable at 8.25%

O) an IIPA that reminds me a lot of Pliny but is somehow tastier. Simply put one of the best beers I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. A true craft brew.

750ml bottle, bailey's taproom, paired with some connect 4

Sharp looking bottle - even sharper looking beer. Nice bright orange body, very healthy white foam. Pungent aromas of dank, tropical fruit, blood orange. Flavor profile follows - sticky, dank, full of tropical fruit and sugar-crusted citrus. Loved this - bought a bottle to-go.

Pours dark golden/light caramel with a good head.
Nose is dank and resinous
Taste is unreal. Great balance between malt and hops. Gives off some nice melon/citrus fruit flavors but also has a dank hoppy flavor.
Fishes crisp and clean.
Overall a great IIPA.

Bottled 01/02/2015. Poured into a RR stemmed glass. Served Chilled.

A - Poured a straw / ruby orange color with 2 fingers of white foam head. Beautiful color.
S - Tropical fruits and citrus with hints of peach and mango. Pine and dank hops fill the surrounding area after being poured.
T - Bright. Very similar to smell, huge tropical fruit and citrus flavor. Floral and pine with no noticeable malt backbone. Some lingering bitterness in the finish.
M - light to moderate body. Lingering bitterness. Tongue scraper. Very light malt backbone allowing the hops to take center stage. Moderate carbonation with a bright hop flavor.
O - One of the best bottles of Sticky Hands I've ever had. Easy to drink with tons of hop flavor. Block 15 is setting the bar high with this staple of a Pacific NW IPA.

750 mL bottle, drank a month after bottling. Simple yet attractive label. Thanks to darrenstory for recommending and sending this bottle.

Light orange, hazy, two finger head. Smells like a massive wave of tropical and citrus fruits, and tastes just like it smells. Very fruity, very bitter, and lightly sweet. Sticky medium body, and a light ring of foam lasts all the way to the bottom of the glass.

Juicy, bitter, slight sweetness. Lives up to its name. Delicious from start to finish. Well worth seeking out if you like big, fruity, sticky DIPAs. Top of its class.

500 mL bottle from IAmJacksHopTongue (thanks man). Bottled 9/4/15. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours pale orange with a finger and a half white head. Thick retention with a wide collar that leaves a good bit of patchy lacing.

Excellent aromas of orange, pine, dank hops and grapefruit. Just a hint of sweet malt peeks out between all of the vivid citrus.

Taste follows the nose with a bright citrus, tropical, piney and floral blend of hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin, pine, dank onion/ garlic, mango, herbal petals, subtle cracker and just a small nip of alcohol. The blend and balance of different hop flavors is exceptional.

Resinous, medium body with understated carbonation. The citrus, tropical, softly bitter finish continues to showcase the mixture of zippy hops.

Sticky Hands is a well constructed imperial IPA. There is lively blend of of juicy citrus and tropical hop flavors with a good amount of bitterness and understated malt sweetness. Certainly worth a try.
