Hail SantaHail Santa
Notes: Rye IPA brewed with rye (SURPRISE!). Hopped intensely with Cascade, Citra, Centennial, and Simcoe. Bright and citrusy! Quaff a few in anticipation of Santa’s big visit!

Look:
Pours the typical Tired Hands haze. Closer to a bright sand than Treehouse orange in color.

Smell:
Tropical, slight bitterness -- seems a tad out of place for winter.

Taste:
Juicy, slight hops on the back.

Feel:
Thick, oaty.

Overall:
Solid beer, but oddly placed as a Holiday Season beer.

Nice hazy orange juice look with a fading white head that lingers in a thin layer. Wonderful fruity tropical nose on this baby. Tired Hands is Good. Sweet fruity with a touch of dankness and low bitterness. Slightly on the thinner side of medium with a bit less carbonation. Low bitterness sits on the palate a bit. Really good beer. Not sure how much rye I taste. Great beer.

16 ounce can, dated 12/20/18. Poured into tulip. Thanks to canconphilly.
Pours a medium straw colored, hazy, soapy off white head. Great lacing.
Nose of Oj, mango, papaya, sweet floral perfume. Taste follows-orange zest, citrus peels, grapefruit pith, crusty French bread, just a hint of rye spice at the finish, pepper.
Softer, slick mouthfeel with a prickly finish.
Good beer, nice addition with the rye.

Pours a pale yellow color with an inch of white head. Citrus hops, tropical notes, fruity malts, light rye, and resin. No bitterness and medium body. A good beer, more like an IPA.

Bright opaque orange with a small white head and great lacing. Notes of bright citrus, orange, light spice, and vibrant dank hops. Smooth, nice pop of carbonation, with a nicely dry finish. Really nice IPA that I could drink waiting for Santa all day.
