On tap at Tired Hands on 12/18/12.
Pour: Completely clear golden orange, with a nice finger and a half of white fluffy head. Head recedes rather quickly, and doesn't leave much lacing.
Smell: Grapefruits and grass up front. Some caramel sweetness comes through and takes over from them. A little bit of booze.
Taste: Follows the nose, but the hops feel significantly faded. Grapefruit and some floral bitterness. A LOT of pine... too much even for me. Pretty substantial caramel malt backbone provides sweetness, and almost overbalances.
Mouthfeel: This was nice. Great carb and no trace of the nearly 10%. Very drinkable.
Overall: Pretty disappointed here. Just felt a little old, and the pine astringency was too much. I thought this was only like two and half weeks old, but it tasted like it was fading quick.

Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dan!
First stein pours with a 1/9" off-white head over the slightly cloudy golden brew. Head skims promptly, with sticky lace. Aroma is tangerine citrus.
Taste starts moderately sweet, oranges in the middle quickly give way to piney bitterness through the close. Fruity bitterness lingers. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. I have a feeling this brew could easily sneak up on me.

A 16OZ glass at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore, I am intrigued by the name.
WEEDEATER looks like a golden IPA, a gold color, light yellow shades on the sides, light looking, a nice off white head up top leaving some patterns on the glass. This one smells straight up double. The malt is large the hops beneath it. Floral scents with some tropic fruit and bubblegum coming through. Drinking this, on first sips, this reminds me of all of the Port anniversary DIPA beers, the malt addition is spot on with that with big biscuit. Tropic fruit, very faint pine. Sweet, hoppy, floral. The feel is medium with a pleasant carb going that's not too bitey. A wholelot of alcohol in this, better to sip and savor. A fine DIPA. Think Port Anniverasry DIPA

growler poured into taster - thanks brad
Golden orange color with a light haze. Bubbled head leaves splotchy lacing along the glass with a mild filmy retention.
Piny, citric hop bitterness aroma. Aggressive with some warming alcohol and milder malt sweetness with caramel.
Bitter pine dankness on the tongue right up front. Residual sticky resin and touches of grapefruit peel and citrus juice. Malt backbone fights its way through with caramel and toasted bread. Finishes bitter and warm with a decent alcohol punch.
Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and long-lasting on the tongue. Another nice hoppy (D)IPA from Tired Hands, although it wasn't one of my favorites (since they've made so many different ones already).

Phenomenal beer, truly one of the greats. I'm always on the lookout for new and great IPAs and this is definitely a brewery to watch for hoppy beers. Definitely a repeat. A growler from yourefragile, thanks! Growler is 4 days old.
Beer served in a HIll Farmstead stemmed glass. Beer is amber and clear (mostly) with a nice white head, decent retention, nice lacing, moderate to low carbonation, looks good.
Aroma is fruity, nice, bitter, resinous, great.
Beer is medium in body, a little malty on the front but hops win HOPS WIN! Great bitterness, great fruity hop flavor, resin coats the mouth. A great IPA and I would have this again, especially from the source.
