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.

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.

Growler from the brewery. Poured into Tired Hands stemmed glass.

From the website: "A VERY flavorful and aromatic IPA. Brewed with wheat and a touch of caramel malt. Hopped with Motueka, Nelson, Zythos, Cascade, and Simcoe. Notes of sticky pine, orange grove, apricot marmalade and grass."

Very attractive clear golden body with a copper tint and some slight chill haze, topped by a finger worth of white, frothy foam. Head dissipates after a few minutes and laces minimally.

The aroma is where this beer shines! Big, bold notes of Juicy Fruit gum, papaya, clementines, apricot and subtle herbal aromas. Complex, succulent and very inviting. Great mix of hops created this diverse and potent aroma. For an IPA, this is among the best.

The bitterness is very restrained and to me comes off as a Pale Ale level of bitterness. Flavor is mostly hoppy, with notes of wintermint, orange rind, and a subtle, biscuity/caramel malt backbone. Leaves the palate with a fresh citrus taste.

The mouthfeel is so soft. Carbonation level is modest (keeping in mind that this is a growler pour) and makes this beer feel all the more sessionable.

Tired Hands keeps making some great beers and this is no exception. With their focus on developing their Saisons and hoppy American style Pale Ales, IPAs and DIPA's, they have a considerable amount of variation to play with even if they are narrowly focused. They're brewing what they like to drink, and that's great for me, because I like drinking those things too. They explore different hop varieties in their ales and sometimes they put something out like FlavorAroma that strikes a chord with their drinking audience. Happy that I picked up a growler of this while it lasted.
