First had: grenade from the brewpub

Hazy, golden-orange pour, capped with a nice firm white head that sank to a dense collar, leaving layers of lacing on the glass. As promised, the aroma is chock full of hoppy goodness from a diverse array of hop varieties, citrus, pine, tropical fruits. Bready malt and honey sweetness was barely detectable in the taste, but certainly there, overlaid with all the hoppiness of the aroma: orange, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, mostly, with undertones of pine bitterness. Medium body, juicy and crisp. Quite tasty overall, and another nice IPA from TH, though not my favorite.

On Tap at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore. Hopped with Motueka, Nelson, Zythos Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe.

Flavor Aroma is a great looking gold colored brew with some orange and light bronze peeking through. A nice amount of firm white head up top leaving rings around the collar. Good retention and activity rising up. The aroma is citrus forward with a small amount of malt giving off light bread/biscuit. The orange, mango, papaya come off well. No sign of the ABV and no abrasive scorching scent. Flavor is wonderful, an IPA for sure, west coast twinged. The malt is barely present, just a kick in the finish, it is masked by loads of the 5 above mentioned hop varietals. This comes off like juice, a whole lot of citrus, loads of tropical fruit. The carb is not that active where it bites the tounge, leaving this having a juicy feel, body is medium and no alcohol in the mouth, besides some bittering hops. This was all to easy to drink and more juicy than bitter, a well rounded IPA, I will get more.

Shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.

The beer is light golden with a small white head of broken bubbles. The aroma offers light pine, earth tones, hops, a hint of spice. The beer is light and easy drinking. Hop forward with light spice and a bit of a biscuit character. Tangy feel with a hint of grapefruit. Pretty good.

on tap at the brewery

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a two-finger high crop of white head resting on top. Nice foamy retention, leaving copious amounts of lacing all around the glass.

Grapefruit and citrus explosion! Super fragrant hops punctuated by dashes of honey sweetness and soft caramel malts. Hints of pineapple, sticky resin and dankness with a soft alcohol note.

The aforementioned citrus beat down comes blazing right through up front, dropping a bomb of grapefruit, orange and pineapple on the tastebuds. Dank and hoppy with some sticky resiny notes. Slightly understated but solid malt backbone with caramel and honey, delivering a soft note of sweetness. Finishes with lingering bitter, juicy hops and a brush of alcohol warmth.

Medium body, well carbonated, creamy and full on the tongue. I'm really enjoying the rotating selection of hop-forward American beers coming out of this brewery, and Flavor Aroma lived up to its branding.

draft at the brewpub

In the glass, the beer is a hazy, bright copper with a creamy, lasting white head and layered lace. Big on fruity tropical character and citrus - mango, orange, pineapple, and young pine. Clean, pale bready malts provide structure. Floral on the nose. Very fruity palate with bitter rind and a full resinous hop bitterness to finish. Juicy. Medium bodied with a creamy, lower carbonation.

Thanks, again, to beerisheaven for this growler, jazzed to try a beer from this brewery. Growler filled 11/11/12 & downed 11/17/12.

Popped open with a notable fizz; good sign. Pour is golden amber, not clear, but with no particulate matter, either. Nose oozes forth nicely, oranges, pine, strong tropical sweetness. I like the direction this is pointed.

Flavor Aroma lives up to its name, in that the aroma is the strongest piece of this pie. After the lovely nose, the taste is a step down. Nice tropical fruits, especially a mango, citrus. Big dose of fresh bread. But the dankness...this isn't my thing & I'm not fond of it in an IPA. Bitterness, but the finish is like the hops were dragged through the mud on the way to the kettle. Really dents the taste. The bitterness sticks around like Elmer's, & I dig that. Very thick, dense, chewy.

Overall this is a good, solid IPA. Without the muddied taste, this would be a clear winner: as is, just good.

REVIEW #200!!! Growler filled 11/11/12 and enjoyed 11/14/12, poured into a Tired Hands oversized tulip.

Pour: Completely hazy orange, with two fingers of off white, soapy head. Leaves some really nice lacing, and the head sticks around. I would definitely call the body on this one 'radiant.'

Smell: Wow! Huge burst of pine and grapefruit up from. Really nice pineapple and mango come through, as well as some tangerine. A light honey sweetness follows.

Taste: Amazing dank pine and mango up front. More grapefruit and citrus. Really nice bready sweetness comes in, and gives this fine brew a nice body. Finishes clean and juicy, with a lingering citrus bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Super juicy. Bitterness is nice, but this beer is nearly fruit juice. Not very sweet, and the bready malt profile gives FlavorAroma a nice medium body.

Overall: Amazing beer, and the best I've had from Tired Hands. Definitely look forward to seeing them make more juicy IPAs like this. Thanks a ton Jean, and what a beer for #200!
