look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Growler procured from the brewery on 8/3 and enjoyed on 8/4.

A. Pours a light, hazy orange. Almost hefeweizen-like in appearance. A finger of eggshell head with thick, soapy bubbles. Lacing is excellent and retention is solid. It's a very juicy looking IPA. Love the unfiltered look. It almost glows.

S. Freshly squeezed orange juice, orange zest, pineapple, whipped cream, honey, pinecone, herbal grassiness. Bright and creamy, this is one of the best IPAs I have ever smelled.

T. Incredibly smooth, with bright citrus notes, juicy oranges, clementine, mango, pineapple. Pine resin bitterness emerges in the mid and the finish but is tempered by that orange creamsicle softness that rides the whole flavor. Some dryness on the finish counters the sweetness nicely. This is amazing.

M. Creamy. It's lush, soft, yet assertive. Effortlessly balanced with a refreshing brightness that hides the ABV incredibly well.

O. An outstanding IPA. Very citrus forward with the orange additions adding to, rather than dominating, the flavor. I love the creaminess, love the citrus notes, love the feel. Wonderful beer. (1,115 characters)

A normal pour produced 3/4'' of cream colored head, which quickly dissipated. Color is amber, and clarity is hazy. Lacing is fair.

Smell: Smell is quite one-dimensional ... sweet, ripe oranges. A bit of bread, and a tiny bit of grapefruit. Smells almost like fresh-squeezed OJ. Cool!

Taste: Taste is of sweet orange, transitioning to pine, and then back to a mellow orange sweetness. There is also a bit of peach to be found here. The most distinctive orange flavor I've ever had in a beer, and it works so well. Flavor duration is average, with heavy sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Body is medium, with a creamy texture. Carbonation is quite soft, with a sweet to bittersweet finish. Perfect.

Overall: Awesome sweet orange flavor, unlike the typical "orange" often found in IPA's. I love this beer. A lot. (801 characters)

Thanks to Mike for this. 32oz. flip top growler (2 days old) into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a nice 1.5 finger foamy white head with moderate to poor retention. Beer is a cloudy, unfiltered grapefruit yellow. Lacing is stringy and spotty with great stick. Phenomenal considering the serving style.

Nose is citrus, papaya, mango, star fruit, cane sugar and dank hop juice. Aromatic. This one reminds me of a Hill Farmstead IIPA... which is saying a lot. Really good and enticing.

Opens cane sugar, citrus, papaya and mango pulp. More tropical fruit in the middle builds a strong, robust malt body. Hop bitterness lingers in the background but never really emerges to the forefront. End is dry and fruity with an accented hop presence right before the finish. Aftertaste of citrus and cane sugar. Very, very good.

Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slick, dry and smooth in the mouth and goes down slightly prickly. Dry, clean finish with a sticky, filmy, puckeringly dry aftertaste. Near perfect. So drinkable for the ABV.

I've said it in this review before and I'll say it again, this IIPA is on par with, if not better than all the Hill Farmstead IIPA offerings I've had. The tropical fruit presence is huge and the hop bitterness complements the malt body almost perfectly. The feel and nose are second to none too. I haven't been a huge fan of all of Tired Hands' offerings but this one is not to be missed. Outstanding! (1,474 characters)

4.18/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours an unfiltered yellow, orange, brown color. Lighter colored and more like a wheat beer in appearance.

S: Citrus, zest, hop aroma.

T: Really nice flavor and the orange has a significant presence. It scales back the hop flavor a bit but adds a nice refreshing subtle fruit flavor for a summer brew. Nice bitter pine hop pop on the back.

M: Light yet loads a flavor.

O: Really nice brew and enjoying the freshness of the hops yet fruity. (454 characters)

1L, filled 8/1/13, drank 8/1/13
Hill Farmstead wine glass

A: Light yellow leading to orange color. Thin ring of big bubbled white head. Faded quickly. Their beers usually don't have that great of head retention.

S: Big tropical fruits. Mango. Citrus. Passion fruit. Almost juicy fruit like. Light malt bill.

T: Up front you get the muted bitterness. More fruity. Little more body that the recently drank IPA. Finish has some bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. More carbonation would help. (487 characters)
