On tap at Tired Hands

A- pours a hazy golden-.yellow color with a small creamy white head that reduces, leaving good lace behind.

S- nice mix of fruity hop aromas; pineapple, mango, guava, grapefruit and fresh cut grass

T- sweet and fruity hops give flavors of pineapple and mango with a hint of orange. Toasted malt kicks in to add good balance and drinkability. Slightly sweet on the finish with an emphasis on sweet guava fruit

M- medium body with moderate prickly carbonation produces a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, very drinkable

O - super drinkable pale ale , with nice fruity hop notes (610 characters)

Not feeling it with this brew, extremely cloudy and a mess to say the least. Staff at the pub should not be pouring it. Milkshake beers are not a trend or acceptable with modern styles... No excuses. (199 characters)

32 oz growler poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Extra cloudy straw-yellow with a 1/2 finger of loose white head that dissipates quickly.

Nose
Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, candy sugar, and dank pine.

Taste
Grapefruit juice, sugar-coated tangerine, and pineapple juice. Bready backbone with nuances of candy sugar. Finishes with pine sap and dank greenery.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, silky, smooth, and juicy.

Overall
Juicy as all Hell with a very low bitterness. I could drink these all day long. Superb Pale Ale. (539 characters)

Bros are idiots for giving this a 64. This is the greatest Pale Ale I've ever tasted. (85 characters)

Tall white head that fades to a fizz on top, lots of lacing. VERY pale body - looks like a light beer.
Nice clean citrus hop aroma, but fades to be pretty faint given time. Taste is overwhelmed by sharp acidity with some messy hops at the back end, lingering dry and bitter. The acidity is felt more than the carbonation, leaving it somewhat astringent.
Disappointing overall. Tastes and feels like an extra-hopped light beer. I guess at 4.8% it sort of is one, but I still wouldn't choose it over any readily available pale ales. (531 characters)

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Hoppy aroma. Grapefruit coloured and lacey. A little yeast, surprisingly. A big smooth mouthfeel. Citrus,fruity, complex and subtle tastes, a good pale. I would like to have a six pack in my fridge. Perhaps the best on tap tonight. (262 characters)
