4.09/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - pours a lovely marigold yellow. Shades of dark gold to bright sunshine are represented. Fizzy snow white foam, roughly 3 fingers worth.

S - sweet notes of orchard and tropical fruits. White peaches, mango, sweet orange peel and grapefruit rind. Dank grass and herbal qualities. The malt backbone gives a notion of flakey pie crust.

T - dry, soft and subtle grainy notes. Notions of sweet and bitter fruit battle it out. Sweet peach nectar and pineapple slices fight for attention against grapefruit rind, bitter orange peel, and pine. Finish is clean and refreshing.

M - medium bodied close to full surprisingly. Creamy texture. Medium carbonation.

O - Excellent IPA. If this was packaged I would drink it constantly. Good show by tired hands brewing.

I really enjoyed this beer. I'm bias to fluffy, aromatic New England IPA's and Tired Hands delivers on this. The beer has a great hop flavor without overwhelming you with bitterness or prickly carbonation. Tired Hands is easily on the level of Tree House or Cellarmaker.

Straight pour from a 1L flip-top growler to a wineglass; filled about 24hrs ago at the brewery. Tag says drink within 48 hours—challenge met, Tired Hands. Challenge met.

Appearance (4.25): Two fingers of pale white foam comes off of the pour and dies down reeelatively quickly (not too fast, though) and leaves what is at first a nearly solid sheet of lacing on the side of the glass—just a light coating of foam all over—and later a great combination of spackling, legs, and collars. The body is a cloudy, light orange-tan color that’s translucent on the edges. This is a really great-looking IPA.

Smell (4.5): Peach, passionfruit, pineapple, and other kinda-mellow, kinda-citric, super-juicy fruit tones really dominate here. Some resin, and some nice, bready malt tones (pale, fresh-baked white bread mixed with some lemon icing) underneath. This is an outstanding-smelling beer, well-crafted and pungent.

Taste (4.25): The hops are still juicy and fruity here, but more lightly so, shifting more towards a lemonade-like bitterness with some citrus zest, a little pineapple juice, a solid grassiness (which is somehow not very bitter but still grassy and floral), and lots of floral character. There’s a real sturdy pine resin aspect to it, too, especially in the (quite long) finish. The malt body is dry and bready, like common crackers or dry biscuits. Neutral yeast, no alcohol, a subtly floral/fruity underbelly, and tons of grassy, citrus-zesty, slightly resinous hop character. Super drinkable.

Mouthfeel (4.25): The carbonation is smooth and the body oily, coating everything evenly before a surprisingly sturdy tingle covers the tongue . . . it drinks light for its size, thanks to the understated malt body and solidly bitter hops. The finish is surprisingly a little juicy, and really nice.

Overall (4.25): This is one of those IPAs that’s somewhere between well-done to outstanding in every regard—but in a way that it’s almost unassuming at first. Like, “oh it’s pretty solid IPA,” except for when you dig into it you realize it has an excellent feel, the flavor is balanced with a surprisingly complex hop character, the nose is almost out of this world, and even the appearance grows on you. Tired Hands does, apparently, know their shit when it comes to hoppy, pale beers—y’know, in case you hadn’t heard. Another great one from TH.

Poured from tap at the brewery into tulip. Hazey golden orange with a finger of head gone quickly. Huge citrus and passionfruit aroma with a hint of pine. Taste is huge fruity flavor. ..pine finish. Lots of graininess and a perfect crisp grapefruit punch. So so smooth its chuggable. Holy crap this is fantastic.

On tap at TH, and a growler to go.

Hazy, golden-yellow color, topped with a foamy white head that receded, leaving a small ringlet, and some light lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit salad: citrus, tropical fruit, candied banana. Fresh hoppy taste, citrus rind/pith, pineapple, mango, grass, dried leaves, background toasted wheat. Easy drinkability, light-medium body. Nice overall.

Summer peaches in a glass. Aroma is delicately sweet, reminiscent of peaches, tangerine and resinous grassy hops. Pours beautiful with clean white head, lacing all the way down the glass. Taste is super juicy, hop forward with a touch of sweetness. Finishes clean, crisp and delightful. The description says this beer was brewed with wheat, but its not prevalent in the taste at all. Absolutely perfect summer beer.

I had this on cask at the pub in Ardmore serve in a tulip.

the color is pale golden with light haziness and thick frothy white cap that settles to a film with stringy lace. The smell is so intense - lots of lemon zest and tropical fruit with a nice hint of pine and mango with mild floral and grapefruit aroma. The feel is great -lots of hop oils and mild sweetness with a soft bitter taste mid palate into the finish with moderately low carbonation.

The flavor is outstanding -nice lemon zest and slight citrus flavor of orange rind and grapefruit with a mild grass taste with sweet malt shadowing the hop fruitiness and slight yeast flavor with some mild spice in the finish. Overall a high quality IPA on cask - well Done TIRED HANDS!

on tap at the brewpub

Hazy golden orange pour with a thick cropping of bone white head resting on top. Patchy rings of lacing on the glass while drinking. Nose is super juicy with a spike of bitter hops and plenty of citrus/tropical fruit. Hoppy and juicy up front on the tongue with pineapple, melon, oranges. Milder backbone with toasted bread and light sweetness. Clean, bitter, fruity finish.

One of the better IPAs to come out of TH recently, I hope this one gets rebrewed soon.

From 11/09/13 notes. On tap at tbe brewery, followed by a growler of it later on that night. Really liked this one.

a - Pours a somewhat clear golden-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, lemon zest, floral hops, grapefruit juice, and fruity malts. Really nice nose, lots of fruit and fresh hops to it.

t - Tastes of mangos, floral hops, tropical fruits, fruit malts, and light citrus. More mango and tropical fruit than the nose, think I like it a little bit better.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Extremely smooth and creamy, and very drinkable. Amazing mouthfeel and drinkability.

o - Overall a really good IPA; reminds me a little bit of their Mago Tago, though not quite there in terms of the amount of tropical fruits. Very drinkable, hoping this becomes a staple there.

Had this on 2013-11-12 at the brew pub.

A - Pretty hazy golden-orange with a 1-finger white head that fades pretty quickly, leaving very good lacing.

S - Juicy, fresh and sweet pineapple, mild-moderately dank, light pine, light spice. Very inviting and fairly strong.

T - Orange and pineapple flesh, very light malt, pine, hop oils, lightly grassy and herbal, nice level of initial bitterness. Aftertaste is increasingly bitter as most of the sweetness dries. There's a long-tasting pine and lightly sour citrus complimenting the remaining hop flavor/bitterness. Well done.

M - Initially, the feel is soft and succulent. Light-medium body and medium carbonation but as it dries you realize it is fairly resinous and nicely prickly.

O - A delicious rendition of the IPA. Very satisfying.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is mostly clear and golden with a small white head of broken bubbles. Another example of poor growler filling technique by the folks at Tired Hands. I wish they would address that...The aroma is fabulous. Huge tropical fruit, to include pineapple, mango. Mmm. Delicious flavor as well, following the aroma. Light in body with low carbonation, as previously mentioned. A great beer, despite the low carbonation. A winner from Tired Hands.

64oz growler, 7/20/13 filled/drank
Riedel tulip

A: Surprised at the clarity. Light orange leading to almost yellow orange. Thin layer of bright white head. Sticky lacing.

S: Nice mixture of pine and citrus fruit on nose. Lighter than expected. Pulling some of that citrus fruit. Not as much the orange marmalade, as described.

T: Bitterness up front of the palate. Fruity hops: nice citrus fruits, slight mango, light orange, etc. Awesome HF-like IPA. Really easy drinking with a low malt backbone. Finish is clean and dry. Some lingering hop bitterness.

M: Surprisingly a light medium.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a medium white head...nice light lacing the whole way down. Aroma has great citrus and stonefruits...just a mild pine accent. Flavor has some tangy citrus, mild yeasty note, citrus rind...excellent peach and mango! Mouthfeel is medium and and lively with a nice dry peach/rind/citrus finish. Very refreshing.
