4.4/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Growler shared my Moll, thanks. Beer is yellow and clear with a thin white head of small bubbles, some lacing, moderate retention, some carbonation, looks good.
Aroma is hoppy and mild with a nice little sweetness / yeast character.
As far as an APA goes, this is a little nice one. It is moderately bitter, has a nice floral hop presence and a good finish. The overall beer is nicely balanced and finishes not too dry with a little IBUs from the hops on the end. The hops are a little citrus and a little piny, I enjoyed it and would have it again.

4.25/5 rDev +3.4%

On tap at Teresa's. Served in a Victory pint.
Brewer's description: "Our exceedingly aromatic American Pale Ale. Hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, and Columbus. Nuances of tangelo, under-ripe kiwi, and pine needles. 5.2% abv."
Appearance is pale cloudy golden with light orange hue. Large frothy off white head slowly fades to a thin collar and thin webs of lace. Aroma of resin, floral, grass, earthy hops; mild unripe fruit. Crisp body, medium full, fluffy carbonation, light crisp finish. Slightly peppery and spicy from the start with a light fruit sweetness through the body and an excessively bitter and dry finish. Not much subtlety here for a sub 5% ABV APA, but enjoyable for a hop fix.

First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA
Review updated: 12/2013
First time having this at Teresa's, I thought, "Interesting look for an APA; did I get the saison by accident?" But now, after drinking this beer since opening day, I know that Tired Hands has pretty much broken all stereotypes and they are in effect capable of redefining even the simplest of beer styles. Pale, straw-yellow color, slightly hazy, with a thin layer of foamy bubbles for a head. Aroma is hop-forward, notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Crisp taste is hop-forward as well, quite lemony, with some grassy funk--again, somewhat reminiscent of a saison, or even a Belgian IPA--pine needles, bready malts in the background. I wasn't too sold on this one at first...I suppose just because it didn't seem quite conventional as an APA. But now I respect it much more, and recognize its diverse nature (see: cask varieties). Light-bodied and easily drinkable. A good selection to have year-round.
