8 oz. pour on tap at the brewery poured into their flute-like glass, unknown brewing but released date on Sun., 04/13/2014, drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - light yellow-orange coloration; little clarity (cannot read through); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge into a finger head remaining throughout the drinking

S: 8/12 - a mix of Simcoe-ish aroma - citrus, light pine and resin - with some honey and light malts; no alcohol; no flaws

T: 15/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's a slight bitterness that opens the remaining hop flavors - again, some slight pine, mango and peach; very mild malt backbone in the middle of the mouth - soft dough/bready flavors - with floral honey; no detectable alcohol

M: 4/5 - high carbonation (perhaps too much for style); moderate body; moderate hop oils from Simcoe; high drinkability

O: 7/10 - as I drink more Tired Hands IPAs, I see less and less distinction with their saisons - bright yellow coloration, hazy, moderate hops, low malt, low ABV, high drinkability; while this is fine in-and-of itself on the palate, I think that they should be better distinguished styles; I would encourage more low lovibond Crystal, i.e. C10-20, or Munich/Vienna specialty malt for a light toast character; also, although they claimed that it was "intensely" hopped with Simcoe, it was moderately hoppy at best for an American IPA

TOTAL - 36/50

First had: on tap at Tired Hands

Have I ever mentioned that I love Simcoe? Because I do.

Hazy golden-yellow pour, with a nice fluffy cap of white head that retained well and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Full, fresh Simcoe aroma, lemon, grapefruit, pine resin, all things good. This was reflected in the taste, clean, fresh, bright, lemon, pine needles, distant biscuity pale malt base. Quite similar to their Single Hop saison, understandably, but I liked this one much better actually. Mouthfeel was crisp and smooth, body was light to light-medium, drinkability was tremendous. Very good overall.
