Thanks to Michael for the growler. Served in Tired Hands stemware. Pours a clear golden color. Nice head and lacing. Heavy resinous hops. Quite dank. Very crisp and quite bitter. Light body. Touch of booze. Light stone and tropical fruit. Actually reminds me quite a bit of Pliny the Elder. The body and bitterness are very nice, but I could use a touch more hop flavor and aroma. Otherwise, quite good.

on tap at the brewery

Pours a hazy golden color with a frothy crop of white head resting on top. Rings of lacing coat the glass while drinking.

Pungent, dank hops in the nose with a pleasant burst of citrus. Grapefruit and orange peel with some bitter pine. Touches of malt and biscuit with some light sweetness and a soft kiss of alcohol.

Assertive hoppiness up front with grapefruit and orange. Pithy citrus with an underlying piny notion. Biscuit and bread malts with a touch of caramel and faint sweetness. Finishes bitter and dry with some alcohol warmth.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. Another bullseye for Tired Hands - I really hope they make more

Draft offering at Tired Hands. Served in a shaped pint glass. The brew appears a polished color of mild copper. A white head appears atop thick and patchy with a finger strength. As the cap slowly fades, it in turn leaves thicks pathes of lacing effect on the glass.

The aroma is bright with hops. A vibrant display of fruit and floral tones that are mildly tropical without any distinct discernible quality but still very appealibg. It is rindy with fresh zest and pulp of something similar to oranges.

The taste is also rindy with some hints of fruit and herbs but with a modest bitter pulp inclusion. Like the nose, this is quite fresh and zesty with and inclusion of earth, grass and herbal to dank appeal.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. There is very minimal alcohol impact and overall this is worth a try. For 8%, the alcohol is integrated nicely, not completely masked but evident and warming just a bit.

First had: on tap at the brewpub

Poured a clearish golden-yellow color with a healthy, foamy, white head; moderate retention and beautiful stratified lacing. Aroma is full of hop goodness, pine, citrus, grass; biscuity pale malts in the background. The taste mirrored the aroma well, the hoppage is crisp and accessible, not at all oily or overpowering, which made it feel more like a single IPA than a double on the palate, fresh and clean, not musty or palate-wrecking, notes of citrus, pine, grass, biscuity malt base. Body is just about medium, smooth and drinkable. Actually, when it comes to DIPAs, I like them potent and intense. This beer is not that, so it's not really exemplary of the style, I felt, but you still get a nice solid IPA here.

On Tap at the brew cafe in ardmore

Sea of green sports a golden sunshine tan color with some orange highlights, far from green. The foam is bubbly and reaches an inch in the 16oz portion with some spider web lacing. A nice alive looking beer.

Smell is west coast scented with a heaping of Amarillo and some C type hops. A nice amount of tropics with grapefruit, mango and the like. A small floral aspect and a hint of biscuit from the malts. I get a dash of pine and none of the 8%

Taste is off the charts fresh citrus rind mixed in with the smallest serving of pale malt. Chinook, Cascade, Amarillo, Im just guessing here, but at least one of those has to be up in this piece. I missed the 1st DIPA Tired Hands brewed and if it's anything like this, I missed out. Some pine in the finish and again, no alcohol burn.

Mouth feel is at about medium with a nice present carb, the beer is not dead in any way. This drinks real easy, a lot of DIPA's I have to take small sips, this on the other hand is a gulper which could lead to trouble. I have to have another glass of this stuff before it's gone until next time.

Another splendid IPA/IIPA from Jean and company. Good clarity, light gold body, big fluffy whipped cream head that has strong retention and leaves plenty of lacing. Fresh, vividly hoppy nose, lots of pine, resin, and grapefruit. Not much in the way of maltiness detected here.

The flavor follows the nose closely and this winds up drinking more like a single rather than a double Ipa. West coast vibe with truly restrained malt presence; there's the merest hint of caramel sweetness but the hops are front and center, showcasing citrus, resin, pine needles, and floral notes. Booze is totally hidden and the creamy and smooth body makes this dangerously drinkable. Excellent overall feel; medium full, present but not prickly carbonation.

Fresh, tasty, and elegant. I know saisons are the TH specialty but I'm beginning to appreciate their hoppy beers just as much, if not more. It's hard to say which one was my favorite, as they've all been pretty special: delicado, long way, hopatact, hellcurse, and now this one. Good stuff guys.

Poured on draft into a 16 oz glass. Pours a clean golden hue with a thin whispy head. The nose is full of resiny goodness. The hop profile is sublimely dank. The taste closely mirrors the nose with some citrus thrown in the mix. The finish is both bitter and juicy with a lasting presence. Overall a lovely beer. Please make this a staple.
