32oz brewery filled growler. Hazed gold (almost a grapefruit color) with a rich bright-white head. Lots of sticky spotty lacing left behind. The aroma is fresh, herbal and fruity, with a bit more of a zesty aggressiveness underneath. Soft doughy maltiness hangs along the back. The taste profile is soft up front with juicy white grapes, light tropical fruit and some herbal textures. An underlying crisp citric presence leaves lingering leafy bitterness and pine in the finish. Doughy malt balances this well. Medium bodied with a crisp feel up front that segues into more of a slick creaminess across the back. Alcohol is well hid but does start to wear its welcome out after a while. I initially liked this but the more I worked through the growler, the more I realized that the combination of Nelson Sauvin hops (of which this features plenty of) and high alcohol here just didn’t mesh that well and I actually got a little bored with this after about a glass and a half. This was interesting (in a good way mostly) but I wish the overall drinkability had been a little better.

Pours a fully clouded yellow, moderate cap of froth. Strong notes of grapefruit, citrus, floral hops, mildly piney and grassy. Taste brings full spectrum of hop qualities - bitter, rind and pith -, mild, lightly grainy pale malt profile and some lingering alcohol notes. Medium bodied, touch more carbonation than preferred. Really bitter and hoppy, lingering qualities only downside.

First had: 1L growler from Tired Hands

A cloudy, nearly opaque, golden yellow color liquid, with a somewhat aggressive pour from the growler giving a small cap of foamy white head that stuck as a thick collar; moderate lacing. From the get-go, I could tell something was slightly amiss here. The aroma was full and hoppy, lots of citrus, with a mild chemical undertone. I'm not sure if there was an off-aroma/flavor here or if I'm just not familiar enough with the Pacific Jade hop profile. The taste was definitely hop-forward, as you'd expect for a DIPA, orange zest and pulp, stone fruits, somewhat herbal, chewy pale malt base, a bit of funk; underneath there was a persistent acetone sensation that was not destructive, but quite hard to ignore. Not something I'd really expect for the style. Medium-bodied, pretty smooth in the mouthfeel, not quite as crisp and clean as many TH offerings, and whether that acetone kick was an off-flavor or not, I wasn't really digging it, though it wasn't strong enough to make the beer unenjoyable. I had no problem polishing off a glass and going back for more.

Thanks to baybum for this growler!

Pours a nearly pure yellow with a very tall white head, pretty unique appearance for an IPA and really striking.

Smell is of lemon and other bright citrus, some wet grass, something vaguely like a urinal but I mean that in the best possible way.

Taste is surprisingly sweet, almost like lemon drop candy or lemon cough drops. Very bright character overall, almost tangy. Some moderate floral notes. Bready malt profile in the finish. Odd flavor profile, especially for a DIPA, but pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel is unusual, good level of carbonation but the body is thick and syrupy and sticky. Not exactly quaffable but definitely pleasant.

Unusual IPA but enjoyable, another strange but likable beer from Tired Hands.

7.5/10

on tap at the brewpub

Hazed orange pour, creamy froth of white head, plenty of sticky lacing streaking the glass while drinking.

Super citrus forward nose with biting hops and caramel malts. Alcohol heat is present with some bread crust and honey.

Splash of heavy-handed grapefruit hoppiness with orange peel. Pithy and pulpy, bitter and boozy on the tongue. Fuller malt backbone delivers some tempering sweetness with caramel. Noticeable alcoholic finish with lingering bitter hoppiness.

Fuller medium body, sticky and creamy on the tongue, decent carbonation. I had no trouble finishing off my glass, but the finish and overall balance was a little harsh compared to other DIPAs from TH.
