32 oz growler fill poured into a teku

A- A hazy bright orange with a two finger white head.

S- Mangos and more mangos, tropical fruits, slightly dank, some pine, citrus, one of the best smelling IPAs I have tried.

T- Mangos, tropical fruits, oranges, dank, piney finish, citrus, slightly sweet malt backbone, very well balanced.

M- Smooth, medium body, slightly creamy.

O- Best IPAs I have tried from Tired Hands. Hard to believe this is a regular IPA, I love what Tired Hand is doing and the haven't brewed a bad IPA, but this takes things to another level!

I don't usually like IPAs, as I don't like bitterness. This has a bit of bitterness, but I think less than your standard IPA, and it is juicy and delicious. I'm done going through each of the categories unless I think they're particularly important to a specific beer, as I don't give a hoot what it looks like, and really not too concerned with what it feels like either. Texture has never been big for me.

Anywho...

Smell is of ripe mangoes (my favorite fruit) with some pine in the background. The taste is more balanced, with the juicy, sweet, delicious mangoes on the front half, and the pine notes taking over towards the back end. There is a mild to medium amount of bitterness on the after taste, and it lingers for awhile. My new favorite IPA (not that I try many)!!

One of their best. So smooth, little to no malt taste, hopped with Citra and Mosiac, and Centennial. This is loaded with grapefruit, mangos, and even some peach it seems. IPAs don't get much better than this one. If it's still on tap, do yourself a favor and get a growler filled.
