4.5/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

8 oz. pour on tap at the brewery poured into their flute-like glass, unknown brewing/kegging date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - light yellow-orange coloration; high hop haze (cannot read through); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge into a finger head remaining throughout the drinking

S: 9/12 - some typical Simcoe hop aromas - pine, resin and slight citrus also picking up on some passion fruit and other citrus notes; no alcohol; no flaws

T: 17/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's a soft bitterness that gives way to pine cone and grassy notes; in the middle of the mouth, there's a big slap of sweet passionfruit that just takes over; yet, it still finishes dry and inviting; no detectable alcohol

M: 5/5 - high carbonation; moderate body from the passionfruit puree; moderate hop oils from Simcoe; super drinkable and refreshing

O: 9/10 - hands down the best beer of the TH excursion - I absolutely loved the admixture of passionfruit and pine that this beer offered as one of the best fruit-forward IPAs that I've ever had the pleasure of tasting; highly recommended for a growler/trading

TOTAL - 44/50

On tap at TH. And then in a growler at home.

As if Mago Tago wasn't enough, they had to do the same beer but with passionfruit instead. Impenetrably cloudy pour, orange-yellow in color, with a finger of foamy white head that retained well and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Loads of sweet passionfruit in the nose, lighter aroma of zesty citrus and wildflowers. A juicy blast of passionfruit in the taste up front, lightly tangy, citrusy Simcoe hop notes coming in shortly after, bringing in a good balancing bitterness, undertones of freshly cut grass. Crisp mouthfeel, pleasant and medium bodied, far too drinkable. Hopefully this one makes more appearances in the future...it's better than Mago Tago.

First things first, love the 1L glass from Tired Hands. Definitely a sweet looking growler.

Pours a cloud orange color, still with good head even after being filled 72 hours + prior to consumption.

Aroma is interesting, citrus fruits and a sharp, tangy smell that must be the passion fruit.

Taste is certainly unique. Tastes very similar to Deschutes fresh squeezed at first, orange dominated citrus with a touch of soft malt balance. Then the peculiar zing of passion fruit takes over and dominates the midpalate and the finish.

Mouthfeel is very soft, though this is likely the result of spending a few days in the growler.

As I haven't had a whole lot of experience with passion fruit previously, I wasn't sure what to expect in the flavor profile. Based on this experience, I don't think I'm a big passion fruit fan. However, I would very much like to try the base IPA for this beer, as the first citrusy notes I tasted were great.

From 04/12/14 notes. 8 oz pour in a tulip at the brewpub.

a -Pours a murky, orange juice looking-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of passion fruit, mangos, tropical fruits, floral hops, grass notes, earthy malts, and light citrus hops. Nice nose, lots of tropical notes to it.

t - Tastes of orange juice, tropical fruits, peaches, passion fruit, mangos, light pine hops, citrus hops, floral hops, grass, and earthy malts. Taste is very fruity but more hops than the nose which I like.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitterness to it so pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a very good IPA from Tired Hands. Personally I prefer MagoTago as I think that one seems a bit hoppier, whereas this one was a little sweeter and fruiter. Splitting hairs though as they are both great, and easy to drink. Probably the best beer from this trip out there.

Poured from a growler into a Tired Hands mini wine glass. Thanks to Hastur23!

A: Pours about two fingers of whispy white head. Hazy, murky straw color.

S: Dank, resiny hops. Piney and woody. Passion fruit, orange juice, mango, all kinds of tropical fruits. Just a bit of wheat at the end.

T: Up front more resiny hops. Herbal dry hopping, sweet candy hops, sticky pine. The passion fruit comes through in the middle. Sweet and bright like a box of fruit juice. Finish is refreshing wheat and honey cracker malts.

M: Refreshing, light feel. Crushable at a picnic.

O: A dank, grassy, piney, simcoewhatever forward IPA with nice notes of fruit juice. Awesome hop profile that blends well with the passion fruit. Way to easy to drink. Recommended.

Beer was growled on 12/20 and poured Xmas eve.

Pours cloudy, pale yellow with a nice white head. Smells a little messy... Big juice, white pepper, and fruity hops all just sort of crash into each other.

The flavor irons everything together magnificently. Just... Goodness. Hops and pepper up front moving quickly into a fabulous melange of tropical fruit hops and actual, literal tropical fruit juice. The sign and signified meet up, and they're not even pissed at one another, they get along like a pair if Irish Catholic high school classmates having an unexpected reunion in the DUI holding pen.
