750ml growler into an Alchemist stemless snifter.

Pours a hazy pale grapefruit with some big bubbles floating on top. Minimal lacing with an oily head. Average.

Nose is citrus, grapefruit, and papaya. Some soapy hop notes too. Pretty aromatic and appetizing.

Opens pineapple, papaya, mango and citrus. Slightly floral and citrus hop bitter notes in the middle with a big dose of tropical fruit. Juicy towards the end with a slightly bitter bite right at the finish. Finishes cane sugar and fruit. Same aftertaste. Very good.

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth in the mouth and goes down quenching and slightly dry. Lingering, filmy finish with a juicy aftertaste. Real drinkable.

Tired Hands' IIPAs have always been among the most enjoyable and I'm glad to see their single IPAs catching up. A very solid offering that's definitely worth trying.

The aroma has melon, citrus, grapefruit, and a light bready malt.

The flavor has a light pop of grapefruit. honey dew, with lots of drying and some white grape from the Nelson. A bitter grapefruit peel finish.

A really well made IPA and one of the highlights I had at Tired Hands that day.

Tap at Tired Hands. From notes.

A - Poured a cloudy orange colour with two fingers of thick white head. Good lace rings and a film of retention.

S - Lovely nose with lot's of tropical fruits, honey, some malt, and grapefruit peel.

T - Juicy citrus, really complex fruit notes of mango, passion sweet and fresh fruit juices, mango syrup and honey.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body, good bitterness.

O/D - Very nice IPA. Definitely on it's way towards the higher echelon of the style. Quite lovely and drinkable.
