Thanks to RetailL10 for the growler.
Pours pale yellow with a finger of white head. Good retention and a bit of spotty lacing.
Aroma features citrus, a bit of pine and a lot of grassy/floral hops. Nose is muted as the faint hops are hardly all that's there.
Flavor starts out with the grassy hops. A little bit of orange rind and pine soon creep in. Just a bit of breadiness although hardly any malt in this puppy.
Light mouthfeel with a slightly creamy texture and carbonations pops. Light bitterness lingers on the tongue.
A nice APA and goes down very easily. I'd love a little more in the flavor/aroma department though. Looking forward to trying more stuff from Tired hands.
Serving type: growler

8 oz. poured on tap into a pokal/pilsner sort of type glass of sorts at the bar.
Another one to one and a half finger creamy egg white whipped head presented, sitting on a body of lemon opaque yellow, with some faint orange tinge edges. Looks almost like apricot in a glass and ring laces tremendously down the sides of the glass while drinking.
Nose seems to have a light floral sense and lots of citrus juicy quality. The hops are aromatic and take over the malt presence it seems by design but it's not like I care at this point since the aroma is so pleasant and inviting. Some hints of sugar cane perhaps in there.
Once again with these beers it's the mouthfeel that always strikes me first. Lush and fully coating and incredibly hop juicy. Good tropical mango, and a faint dry pine bitterness on the swallow. Aftertaste and aroma has incredible large growing pith citrus bite and huge amounts of lemon and orange peel bitterness that explodes. I can nearly chomp into it long after the beer is finished.
Powerful, but it also makes me forget about the base malt which I would like for balance and to remind me that this is a pale ale after all, but it's a hop lovers dream and full of wonderful hop pleasantries that any beer lover who enjoys that sort of thing can get down with.
Serving type: on-tap
