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.

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.
