4.26/5 rDev -4.3%
32 oz. growler poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Appearance - Very pale and hazy body. Nice white head. Great lacing and the surface maintains a thin layer of foam.
Smell - Bright and citrusy when cold. More depth as it warms. The simcoe becomes more prominent. Never seemed malty at all when cold, but I get some of the sweetness now.
Taste - Again, very bright citrus up front. Slight hint of honey. Grainy malt. No real sweetness. The finish has a light bitterness and I think I might even detect a trace of rye after all the other flavors recede.
Mouthfeel - Very light when cold. Maltier as it warms. Medium carbonation.
Overall - This has just enough flavor behind it to be really enjoyable. Tired Hands IPAs always seem very delicate in their flavor. This one is just comes in over the line and turns out to be very good and complex if you can let it warm a bit.

First had: on tap at TH
Tired Hands 1st anniversary IPA, brewed with "rye, PA wildflower honey, and lime / meyer lemon / grapefruit / clementine juice & zest. Hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe."
Cloudy golden color with a finger of foamy white head that retained forever, and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Blast of citrus and citrusy hops in the nose, lemon, lime, orange (or clementine if you want to get technical), grapefruit, stone fruit, pine needles. More of the same in the taste, a citrusy hop sensation, all citrus fruits, zest, pulp, pith, all intact and bursting forth with goodness; lesser notes of pine needles, stone fruit, tropical fruit, distant pale malt sweetness. Light-medium body, soft mouthfeel, goes down incredibly smoothly, with a crisp drying bitterness. One of the best--THE best?--I've had from Tired Hands.

Growler filled yesterday at Tired Hands' 1st Anniversary party. Poured into a tulip glass.
A- Pours a hazy light golden yellow color, topped with a finger of white head,
S- Amazing. Just tons and tons of awesome citrus, both from the hops and added juice. Also some pine and grass, just a bit of sweetness.
T- Moderate bitterness, light pine and grassiness. The citrus is huge, both from the hops and from the added fruit juice, if International Citrus Units weren't the stupidest bullshit ever I would say that the ICUs in this were off the charts. Anyway, it's awesome. Some bready, pale malt provides some sweetness, along with the honey, but otherwise gives the hops and fruit free reign.
M- Medium to light body, smooth feel, nice dry finish.
O- A great IPA, like, really really good. The citrus is perfect. They better make this again, and forever.

Graciously shared by Derek (Rifugium) and his wife last night.
The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with great head retention and considerable lacing. On the nose, this is just IPA heaven. There is an incredible aroma of peach, mango, apricot, light citrus and pine. I could go on smelling this all day (except the beer tastes nearly as good as it smells, so why deprive oneself), it's that exotic and attractive. The beer is nearly as good on the palate, with tons of tropical fruit, and with a soft mouthfeel that is just amazing. Despite all the exotic tropical fruit in this beer, the IPA is quite dry, with a long, soft, lightly bitter finish. This beer is incredibly well balanced, with the alcohol perfectly integrated into the flavor profile. There was no heat or heaviness on the palate (the beer actually comes across as quite light on the palate), and so drinkability is just exceptional.
I'd already had more than my share of beer after the Founders event at World Cafe Live, but I still asked Derek for a second pour after the first (I couldn't help myself). One of the best IPA's I have had in a VERY long time. This is just exceptional stuff. Very, very impressive!
As I left Derek's house, his wife (MsRif) was berating him for only getting a single growler, as we all but polished off the growler while I was there. I can't say I blame her one bit (shame on YOU Derek!). Fortunately, my understanding is that it should still be on tap today, so hopefully he was able to make it down for a refill (assuming he didn't stop by again last night). Yes, this IPA really is THAT good!
