My wife and I ran through some of Idle Hands' offerings at their brewery and thought this was the best. We bought a growler.
For what it's worth this is Idle Hands' house beer that is brewed only upon receiving a fresh batch of yeast. After going through a batch of Patriarch that yeast is then used in all (most?) of Idle Hands' beer as their house strain. Hence the name. All batches are pilsener, yeast, water and a different hop each time. This batch was Perle.
Translucent orangey golden hay color with a thin head from my poor pour. Head lays down into a a crescent moon collar with a foamy smudge in the middle of my glass. Rouses well. Served in a Sambvca tulip 'cause that's what I had.
Dry hay, dry board, all the lovely yeasty phenols that make for a phenomenal barnyard beer.
Wonderfully dry and phenolic. Bread crust and a little sugared lemon/orange rind sweetness. Earthy, herbal hop for balance.
Everything I'd ever want in a BPA - dry, simple yet with lots of depth, balanced. Helluva yeast strain.
