Draft from the source and a growler to take home.

The beer is mildly hazy and light yellow with a big, fluffy white head. The aroma offers grass, floral notes, citrus, oranges, funk. Smells like a delicious, fresh, funky saison. The flavor is light and refreshing. Funky and earthy with a pleasant hop bitterness in the finish. Light spice with a bit of barnyard character. I really enjoyed this beer. Tired Hands is churning out some good brews lately.

Yellow straw in color, moderate cap of froth. Musty grain, light earthiness, mild grapefruit and pine on the nose, faint grassiness. Taste ramps the hop notes up slightly, but fails to showcase as much as "single hop" beers tend to do. Medium bodied, bubbly. Decent, lightly hoppy saison.

On-tap at the brewpub

A pale yellow in color, hazy, with a thick, creamy white cap. The head was about one finger and had excellent retention.

The base saison is a great blanket to showcase these hops. Light biscuit and white pepper with a touch of earth. A layer of Amarillo over top lending a subtle nose of orange peel, apricot, with a touch of a floral character.

Follows the nose for the most part. Soft citrus up front before a wave of wheat and biscuits through the middle. Some white pepper and grassy earth poke through before a mild bitterness of orange, apricot, and touch of flowers.

Light bodied. A touch on the juicy side.

I really thought Amarillo was a little more bold than this. This was a delicate saison with soft, subtle notes from the hops. Well-crafted and very tasty.

Hazy golden yellow pour, thick white head rests on top and fades out into a collar of retention while tracking some spots of lacing on the glass.

Smacks of bitter amarillo hops in the nose with funky yeast and peppered spice. Grassy with biscuit malt.

Decent hop presence with touches of citrus peel and cut grass. Saison-like yeastiness, cracked pepper and spice. Medium backbone with soft sweetness, followed by lemon/orange peel. Finishes a touch bitter and dry.

Medium body, decent carbonation, dry and bubbly on the tongue. Pretty tasty, although this wasn't one of my favorites from the Singel hop series.

Served in a tasting glass.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a small layer of head. Reminds me of a wit. Smell is interesting with a strong yeast spice and a fruity note. The taste follows but the hops are more prevalent. The yeast spice is there as well with a clean grain backbone. Light, dry, and bitter in the finish. Easy to drink.
