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.

Served on-tap at the pub.

A - Pours super hazy golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky rings of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong Simcoe hops, bit of pine resin, lots of mango pulp and pale malts and grain.

T - Starts off with a beautiful mix of mango juice and sticky Simcoe hops slowly being joined by the pine sap, pale malt and chewy wheat. Finish is a little chewy with a good amount of fruity bitterness, lingering long after the finish.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Fruity, resinous feel with a bit of grain backing it up. No booze is present.

O - This has always been one of their best beers and this batch is no different, it just has never been as good as everyone makes it seem. Worth seeking out but let's not go overboard.
