4.08/5 rDev -4.9%
Pours a golden amber color, full, dense white head, some sticky lacing. Strong notes of juicy, yet bitter, grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruit, lightly floral and spicy, crackery malts burried beneath juicyness. Taste brings firmly bitter, lightly sweet and juicy hops, clearn and fresh but delicate, more floral notes, crackery with a spicy kick. Medium bodied, dry. Solid collaboration with fantastic scent, just maybe a touch meek in hop flavor.

Big thanks to yourefragile. Served in Tired Hands stemware. Hazy light yellow. Short head. Nose is insane with dank hops and lemon rind. Citrus. Flavor is over the top. Great lemon. Bitter. Dry. Hands down one of the best hoppy beers I've ever had. No surprise given the brewers involved.

Growler filled at the brewery. One of the bartenders filled for me and he wasn’t quite as fastidious as Jean; consequently the beer was not in as pristine a shape as it was when the boss purged with CO2 and left absolutely no air in the growler during a previous visit.
I’m splitting hairs here; the beer was still quite good, but not as outstanding as it was on tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a small, quickly diminishing head and minimal, spotty lacing. Citrusy, fruity aroma with a vague oniony undercurrent, that Amarillo thing. Vividly hoppy without much of a malt aroma at all.
The taste follows the nose, but is perhaps a little lighter in the assertiveness of the hops than in the aroma. The malt is still well-hidden overall and the citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, resin, onion-garlic hop notes are front and center, but there’s a certain gentleness about it and it doesn’t overwhelm the palate with bitterness at all. Complex, intricate, and dry.
Smooth carbonation; just a little lower than it should have been, medium-light bodied; very easy to drink.

Big thanks to yourefragile for muling and Thorpe429 for footing the bill on a bunch of Tired Hands stuff. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
A - Golden hay color with thin lacing.
S - Totally a Hill Farmstead beer. The nose up front is all that moderate citrusy dankness. There is also a good amount of pine as well.
T - Very good citrus and slight dank pine up front. I love the finish. The best way to describe it is lemon bar. Bite into a lemon bar, chew, swallow. The lingering massive lemon/slifght powdered sugar/moderate graham cracker crumble is exactly what the aftertaste on this is. Well, with a bit of hop bitterness there as well. Just...fascinating.
M - Pretty much dead on for a 6% hoppy beer. Light on the tongue but plenty of body to hold up to the hop character.
O - My notes simply say "winner winner chicken dinner" and that seems plenty apt for this beer. Tired Hands is on their way up, and Hill Farmstead remains at the top of the f'n mountain.

Served on-tap at the Brewery and later from a growler. This is a combination of the two.
A - Pours hazy golden orange with a small one finger head leaving small trails of lace down parts of the glass. The growler seems to have lost some carb but it still has just enough.
S - Smells of pungent citric hops, fresh lemon zest and pine resins. The growler had a bit more malt to it but it was close to a week old. Either way it has a great nose.
T - Starts off with plenty of citric hop bitterness that never really fades away. Once the initial hit dies down the lemon and pine come roaring through. As with the nose, the growler version has a bit more malt than the on-tap but that isn't the beers fault. Finish is bitter, leaving the palate dried long after consumption.
M - Here is where the loss of carbonation really hurt it, on-tap the feel was near perfect. It still has a light feel with plenty of flavor, allowing it to stand even without the carb.
O - I was there when this was brewed and again when it came out and I have to say that this is a really awesome beer. The hops and lemons really shine and it is very easy to drink. Glad I got to try this one.

Collaboration beer brewed with the HIll Farmstead guys. Served in two 8oz portions.
Delicado pours out the spout with a light yellow/orange haze, no gold here or bronze, looks pretty, with a nice bright white head. Some minor stickage from this one. Smell is bright with lemon zest with a backing of tropical fruit. The malt bill is light and hardly noticed. Some florals pop out with warming and at 6%, no alcohol seeps through. Smells purty. Taste is a whomp of citra, amarillo, Motekua leaving a nice melange of flavor. Pineapple, mango, lemon zest, light malt bill and clean taste. Bitterness is present but not at west coast levels, comes and goes with an aftertaste of lemon, that does not singe the senses. Feel is on the light side, semi bitterness, full of flavor and a nice change from the 'normal IPA'. All in all a good experiment.

On tap at the hill farmstead for the civil disobedience 43 and jimmy release. Poured into my hill farmstead tulip.
A -- poured a hazy golden hue with a nice one finger white head that fades to leave a thin soapy white blanket with light lacing.
S - Aromas of nice solid citrus peel nicely dank with some light tropic notes. Very bright.
T - Taste is slightly less tropical with more grapefruit peel than anything. Its lightly malt sweet with some nice dankness.
M - Mouthfeel is nice lightly carbonated with more of the mustiness.
O - Overall this is an alright ipa collaboration with these guys and hill farmstead. This is pretty solid.

A very nice iteration of American style IPA.
Tasted on tap and afterwards from a growler (yes, needed more to take home).
Lighter in color than most of the modern IPAs out there, slight haze. Head was white, nicely retained, with lacing.
Aroma was light, lemon, no funk. Appealing.
Flavor was a nice lemon/citrus even a little grapefruit. Had a gentle spice with a very refreshing hop. This was perfect for the 90+ degree day on which this was sampled. Finish around 30-40 seconds which was smooth and pleasant.
Overall, a very nice IPA for a hot summer day. Went really well with some spiced up turkey burgers and grilled vegetables.
Grab it while you can. Hopefully, they'll make more. My favorite of those beers yet, but waiting for the T'Gaverhopke collab...
