Awesome growler want hit by Al....man thank you so much! Growler opened within minutes of landing on my porch.

Pours a massive cloudy yellow with orange highlights. Loads of hop particulates float lazily throughout. Carbonation is thankfully solid after a week and the surface shows big soapy white bubbles.

Smell is of big sugary mangoes...nice and fleshy and ripe. Hops lay down an herbal and piney element along with some additional sweet fruits on the periphery.

Similar to the smell, the mango presence is large and in charge and shows sweet and sticky. The hops wrap themselves around and plant a tight bitter fang into the scrumptious fruit. Moderate pine bitterness tags along towards the finish and rides the coattails of the lingering mango sweetness.

Mouthfeel is supple and the carbonation helps keep the beer from becoming to sticky sweet on the tongue, though the residual sugary and plush flavors from the mango just stick to the palate and linger a good long while.

There is a dangerous element of desirability and crushability here that could do some damage to my afternoon and mental capacities. That said, I could see how some could say that a single glass would do the trick and the flavors could become cumbersome.

Tons of mango, tons of hops, tons of fun....thank you Al!

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange. Almost yellow. Medium white head. Leggy. Medium collar.

Smell - Lots of mango. Some citrus hops. Doughy pale malt. And diacetyl. Took a while for it to show itself, but as the beer warms, it's strong.

Taste - Mango flavor up front. Diacetyl immediately also. Citrus hops. Orange peel. Sweet pale malt. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Sweet. Medium low carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Tastes great except for the diacetyl. Good while it was cold, but the diacetyl began to overwhelm.

32oz growler poured into a Tired Hands teku glass.

Appearance: Pours a light orange color with 2 fingers of a white head that eventually settles to a thick collar. Decent head retention and lacing. Body is extremely cloudy, to the point of being nearly opaque.

Smell: Mango, pine, dank hops, slightly grassy, tropical fruit, orange.

Taste: Piney, dank hops hit the palate first before yielding to mango, citrus and tropical fruit in the finish. Overall very dry, but with a slight sweetness and astringency. Aftertaste is almost all mango and citrus and lingers long after the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft creamy mouthfeel and medium levels of gently carbonation.

Overall: Really good beer, but still ranks behind Such Passion for the spot as my favorite Tired Hands IPA. Still well worth seeking out though.
