Served on-tap at the brewpub. Review #666...

A - Pours pale yellow with a frothy one finger tall white head leaving small trails of lace down part of the glass.

S - Smells of super fresh clementine pulp and zest, juicy citric hops, grass and some pale malt. The nose is incredible on this one.

T - Starts off with the intense citric hop bitterness quickly giving way to the strong clementine fruitiness, chewy pale malt and some of the fresh cut grass. Finish is a touch chewy with plenty of hop bitterness, not lingering on the palate for very long at all.

M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, chewy feel with plenty of bitterness.

O - I have had both batches of this one and both have been excellent. It remains one of my favorite Tired Hands beers to date. One of my favorite APA's to date. (819 characters)

This poures out as a hazy yellow color with a foamy looking white head on top. The retention and lacing were very nice on this beer. The smell of the beer has a very nice bright and fresh hop aroma. The aromas of citrus and wheat blend nicely with a subtle floral note in there as well. The taste of the beer has a very nice hoppy flavor, suble notes of citrus as well as some earth grains in the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a decent amount of carbonation to it. Overall it's good IPA. Very refreshing and not a kick in the teeth hop bomb. It's got a good amount of flavor and aroma for the style while keeping it's drinkablity to a maximum. As cloudy as this beer is I feel it still has a crisp clean flavor to it which is really nice. This beer would be really good in the warmer months. (804 characters)

First had: on tap at the brewpub

I can't really think of a brewery other than Tired Hands that makes SO MANY distinct IPAs (or in this case APAs, whatever) that are all of such good quality.

Cloudy, pale yellow pour, with a half inch of bright, foamy, white head that retained well and left layers of lacing on the glass. Lots of fresh hops and citrus in the nose. Taste was again loaded with fresh hops and blended seemlessly with a huge citrusy clementine profile, juice, rind, and pith were all present; slight pale malt sweetness in the background, but the hops and fruit were clearly in charge here. Crisp, clean, refreshing, extraordinarily drinkable, light-medium body. I'd keep a sixtel at my house for sure. (718 characters)

Pours a light but cloudy lemon juice or grapefruit juice color. Head is a finger that dissipates quickly. The nose is overwhelmingly citrus and especially clementines. Taste is almost sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Again, the clementines dominate, no surprise since the brewer says he used 60 pounds of clementines! This is VERY refreshing and without being cloying or terribly sticky. This brewer and this place are first rate and this beer will convince you if you aren't already. Have t it! (497 characters)
