Another big thanks to rudzud for sharing this great beer.

Pours a nice fizzy foamy 1 finger head that fades at a slower rate, decent soapy lacing too, super hazy tangerine orange color.

Nose bursts with awesome tropical fruit, mango and pineapple right off the bat and tons of it, tangerine citrus and a little fresh squeezed orange juice, hint of resin and passion fruit, even a little grapefruit and orange cream. Hint of a fluffy malt.

Taste stats with a sweet malt base surprisingly, fluffy malt, etc. Then tons of hop tropical fruit, layers and layers of pineapple and mango, some apricot like stone fruit too, hint of tangerine and mild grapefruit. The fruits themselves seem sweeter. Finish is a bit sticky but drier, fairly sweet, bit of fluffy malt and fair bitterness, and long mango pineapple flavor.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier bod, lighter carb little underwhelming, bit too creamy, but booze is hidden well.

Overall great, hops and malts are so great.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden orange with a nice one finger white head that fades to leave light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of mangos, pineapples, tangerine, faint grapefruit. This is a hop bomb of tropical fruit galore. Light candy fruit. Faint sweet malts, just awesome.

T - Taste is loads of pineapple, lightly sweet tropical fruits, loads of mango. The pineapple is stupidly huge. Light tangerine sweet and sweet fluffy malts. Enormous enormous tropical hops.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, alcohol hidden nicely. Would like more carbonation.

O - Overall this beer smelled and tasted amazing. Tropical awesomeness though a bit too sweet and the mouth was too creamy.

On tap at TH.

Impenetrably murky pour (reminded me of someone's complaint once, wherein they expressed regret that TH doesn't filter their beers), peach-orange color, with a finger of foamy white head that sank to a thick ring and held there, leaving layers of lace on the glass. Fruity aroma, peach and mango, citrus, notes of sugary malts. Lots of peach in the taste, heavy with dankitude, lesser notes of mango, orange, pine, honey, pale malts. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body, goes down easy. Very nice overall, and one of the better DIPAs they've made.

From 02/09/14 notes. Had on tap at the brewpub n Ardmore, PA.

a - Pours a somewhat murky bright yellow-orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks a little like fruit juice, like a mango juice.

s - Smells hugely of tropical fruits, tons of pineapple, mango, citrus hops, peaches, floral hops, earthy notes, honey, sweet fruity malts, and oats and wheat. Awesome nose, with tons of hops and fruits. Love it.

t - Tastes of peaches, mangos, pine apples, tropical fruity malts, citrus hops, oranges, lemon zest, floral hops, grains, oats, wheat, light spice, yeast, and honeysuckle. Even better than the nose with more mango and peach. Reminds me a lot of Mago Tago in the taste.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. No bitterness at all, super smooth and creamy. Excellent and very easy to drink. Perfect.

o - Overall a fantastic DIPA from Tired Hands; I think I would rank this slightly behind Mago Tago as my favorite beer I've had from them so far. I love when they hop the hell out of their IPA's with tropical hops and love the mangos, pineapple, and peach that is present throughout drinking it. Great beer I grabbed a growler of, would love to get it again sometime.
