One of the most impressive IPA's I've ever tasted. Brutally smooth despite the massive ABV, drinkable and then some. Great looks, with the classic hazy-orangey-fresh look of Tired Hands... Juicy, explosive tropical smell, like diving in a pool of fresh-squeezed juice, pineapples and naked girls in Hawaii. Outrageous. So outrageous

Poured from a growler into a Tired Hands teku glass and enjoyed on 11/2/15.

A: An opaque orange with an off-white head that lingers. Leaves nice lace on the glass.
S: Tropical fruits on the nose.
T: Tropical fruits are present in the beginning that fade into some pine. Slight alcohol tones present, but not unreasonably as this is pretty high in ABV.
F: Juicy and full bodied. Smooth and very nice.
O: This is awesome. Very drinkable triple IPA with that juiciness that I like.

Poured on tap into a small snifter at Churchkey DC. From notes.

A hazy orange amber body presented with a soapy and very thin off white collar.

Weird nose. Paste and paper, with a very noticeable light floral hop and action and dominating citrus hop. Big sense of chew density.

Palate is a bit of a shock. It's incredibly sweet. Citrus orange sweetness with lots of white sugar everywhere. Sweetness everywhere goes to simple syrup mouthfeel, but still has some light body strangely enough. The hop angle on this is real solid and coating.

Overall though, it's far too sweet to enjoy more than once for myself. For once in those rare times I would have liked some bitterness here.

First had: on tap at TH

8oz. pour, hazy amber color topped with a creamy off-white head that retained well and left stratifying lacing on the glass. Hoppy nose, as might be expected, citrus, tropical fruit. Very tasty, with a blast of hops, candied orange and apricot, a plethora of tropical fruit, orange blossom sweetness, and almost no bitterness at all, an unusual but welcome (in this case) deviation from the norm of the style. Pretty smooth as far alcohol presence goes, though near the finish there was a bit of a boozy kick. Medium body, moderate carbonation, very good brew overall. Cheers!
