The pour is slightly a hazed pale yellow and has a tight white head. The nose is a huge grapefruit explosion, light grain, clean. Taste has light doughy grain with huge grapefruit and a light musky yeast underneath. Carb is gentle on a medium creamy body.

served in stemmed tired hands glass for full on rep

pours a pale hazy golden yellow. light to little head.

very citrus forward. heavy orange and tangerine. tropical love in a glass.

taste is 100% different. bitter through out. pine and resin. some zest is mos def apparent. very faint malt. finish has a slight grapefruit thing going on. loving.

thin and light, a bit dry and oily.

overall, this is really good and so light and easy. well done.

Presentation: 1L swingtop growler chilled and poured into my Hill Farmstead stemware. Huge thanks to Centennial for this great surprise.

Appearance: Medium orange to dark yellow in color. A bit cloudy throughout. Pours a one finger white fizzy head that doesn't hold for long.

Aroma: Mango, tropical fruits and a nice burst of orange zest and juice. Really nice balance of fresh citrus, fruity hops, and some mild bitterness.

Taste: Orange juice and orange zest tones upfront cut through the big fruity hops. The hops are not overly strong at this point but that allows the citrus to really stand out. A slightly bitter aftertaste and light, dry finish. Really tasty.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a burst of carbonation upfront. The acid from the citrus really seems to reduce the carbonation level in this hoppy citrus brews.

Overall, another great offering from Tired Hands. The citrus is really bright and complemented by the hop character. Really well done and nicely balanced. A really refreshing beer.
