32oz, filled 3/14/13 consumed 3/16/13
6oz pint glass

A: Pours almost completely clear light orange yellow color. Layer of light white head. Sticky lacing for days. Impressed by how light this beer is for the ABV.

S: Big sweet fruitiness on the nose. Mango and papaya and pineapple for sure. Juicy fruit hops. Sweet malts are there too.

T: Not overly bitter with all those fruity flavors. But is it very sweet. Delicious, lots of fruit. The alcohol is SO HIDDEN it's dangerous. Finish is dry, but not overly bitter at all.

M: Medium bodied leading to full because of malts.

Poured from a 1L growler filled 3/8.

Pours a nice, hazy gold. There isn't a whole lot of head, but there is a lot of sticky lacing left behind.

Tropical fruit aroma fills the nose, there is a hint at the amount of alcohol, but overpowering. The aroma is the star of this show.

First taste is a creamy mango fruitiness...There is still little evidence of the ABV.

Mouthfeel is very nice. It's creamy and has a nice bit of oiliness to it. Really makes you crave another sip.

This is is a pretty solid beer. It's deceptively drinkable at 11.5%. Just a touch more carbonation would be nice, but that is minor. This should be brewed again, it might be much for regular rotation, but once or twice a year would be perfect!

On tap at the brewcafe

Appearance: hazy vibrant orange with a medium fluffy white head.

Nose: Big tropical fruits, plenty of sweetness. No malts to speak of. The nose is fairly unassuming compared to the huge flavor profile.

Taste: Tons and tons of mango, papaya, grapefruit, and juicy pineapple. It's a big sticky, sweet beer, but it the sweetness is necessary to balance out the intense bitterness. The alcohol isn't present at all, but its still a slow, dessert-type, sipper thanks to the intensity of flavor.

Mouthfeel: a bit flat like most Tired Hands stuff but it works fine with the taste.

Overall: This should be a cult classic like Pliny the Younger. One of my new favorites.
