500ml bottle. #42/60 Pours a hazed gold with a frothy bright-white head. Rich retention with foamy lace. The aroma smells of ripe tropical and herbal hops with an accompanying fresh and zesty Brett character. The taste is similar, with a soft mix of sweet grains, tropical fruit, herbal tones and light zesty Brett flavor which lends this a bit of an earthy bitterness throughout. Dry, bitter and just very lightly funky on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with an overall slick and creamy feel that still manages some crispness on the tongue. This was well done, with a delicious mix of hop and Brett flavors that went down very nicely. A beer for a good cause as well!

Slightly hazy yellow in color. Forms a smaller sized white head. Little retention. Light lacing. Aroma is a light blend of lemon, orange, and sweet floral notes with a bit of yeasty esters. Tastes is similar. Light malts, light sweetness, some juicy orange, lemon, a touch of funk, and then some light spicy, yeasty notes. Lighter bodied, lower carbonation, very light bitterness.
Overall, a decent Saison. Certainly lighter in flavor. Nothing too exciting, but not bad, either.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow. Very lager like in color. Bright white half finger of head. Sticky lacing. Still good carbonation.

S: Like Brett character: barnyard and wet hay. You get some bright light hop aromas. Light citrus maybe. Lemon.

T: Up front you get some of those bright hop flavor. Definitely a lighter citrus flavor. Some Brett character is there to add a little twist. Really nice Belgian pale. Slight spice note. Dry finish with lingering bitterness.

M: Light bodied. High carbonation.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow, tons of lacing.

Smell: The sweetness of the New Zealand Hops comes through, but it definitely also smells bitter, slightly funky, and has a bit of lemon zest lingering in the background. Additionally, smells of ripe oranges and even mandarin orange sweetness is present.

Taste: Unique bitter New Zealand hops, lemon zest, slight black pepper.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body with light-medium carbonation. Refreshing.

Overall: Really well done, enjoying the slightly spicy notes combined with distinct New Zealand hop bitterness as well as citrus flavors.

on tap at the brewpub

Hazed golden orange pour with a two-finger crop of head perched on top. Familiar retention and creamy, sticky lacing on the glass.

Juicy hops in the nose with a one-two punch of funky Belgian yeast, cracked pepper and soft, ripened fruits. Hints of sweetness, grapes and citrus.

Rush of softly bitter hops right up front, combined with a pleasant juiciness driven by ripe fruits, grape, citrus peel and melon. Belgian yeast with a dash of spice, soft funk and toasted grain. Mild backbone, low sweetness level, and juicy on the finish.

Medium body, decent carbonation, creamy and smooth on the tongue. This was a fun crossover farmhouse IPA, especially with the super juicy fruity hop profile.

First had: on tap at TH

Hazy, golden-orange pour with a nice frothy white head that retained well and coated the glass with lace. A nice hit of spice in the nose up front, mellowed out to really more of a fruit medley, pine, notes of white wine. Taste was great, laid-back saison funk, white grapes, melon, peach, piney and leafy hops, green pepper, lesser flavors of citrus and peppery spice. Light-medium body, dry and crisp, easily drinkable. Yet another Tired Hands success.

On tap at TH and growler consumed at home. A "Farmhouse IPA".

Pours a hazed, glowing golden amber with a frothy, retentive white head; stupid amounts of web like lacing. Nose of melon, pepper, vegetable, pine, grass, earthy saison yeast and funk. Dry and slightly funky flavor, with melon, leafy tropical hops, peppery spice, peach skin, soft brett, lemon and grass. Medium full body, well carbonated and a crisp finish. Wow, love this beer. Can't wait to see what this is like in 6 months, but well worth chasing fresh.
