On tap 11/14/12 at Bare Hands, served in a nonic pint.
Pour: Vibrant orange with a finger and a half of cream colored head. Head is very foamy. Body has a some serious radioactive hues to it. Leaves really nice lacing.
Smell: Usual citra hop burst, with big notes of grapefruit and pineapple, as well as some white peppercorn. More citrus, and a some light bready notes.
Taste: Great citrus grapefruit up front, that gives way to more white peppercorn than I am used to with a citra pale. I like it, not spicy, but very flavorful. Some oranges mix with a bready sweetness. Finished with a juicy linger citrus bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Super juicy, so much so that this beer has a nice medium body. Not too much bitterness. Great carb.
Overall: Bare Hands best brew. They really have their Pale Ale game down, and this is a beautiful beer, in all aspects.

Canned a month ago. Looks and smells like a New England-style APA, with a nice orange haze, tropical fruit aromatics, and minimal malt character. Taste is definitely very citra-forward! Lots of grapefruit pith, pine, grass, and a little cracker malts in the background. The mouthfeel suffers a little on this one -- it feels pretty watery around the edges as well as lacking that nice 'pulpiness' that particularly well put-together APAs can have.

This single-hopped APA featuring the ubiquitous Citra hop pours a golden yellow color with an ever so light tan head. Aromas are citrus and passion fruit, and a hint of the malt.

The taste is all about the hoppy citrus flavors - until the crystal malt decides it wants to join the party, too, which it does at the end of the taste.

This is the Bare Hands version of Zombie Dust. They did an excellent job, IMHO.

This is a very approachable pale ale. Nice citrusy nose and taste. Very mild bitterness, but still present. Nice mouthfeel with slight bitter twinges on the sides of the tongue without being puckering. This would be a great summertime poolside pale ale if we had it on tap down here. Glad I got to try it.
