Poured to a BrewDog stemmed glass.

A: The body is matte yellow, having a color that is just perfect. There's certainly oat on this beer to create this kind of matte haziness. The head is one finger thick, shows regular retention for a NEIPA. Some lacing present.
S: The aroma is very much tropical, having then hints of citrus and resin. So it's basically an-all-round IPA aroma profiles. Citra & Ekuanot may be present.
T: Taste starts off with citrus and resinous profile, having just a mango hint in the back of the flavour. It then moves to more bitter spaces and ends with a very sparkling bitterness that's not too shy nor too bitter. Good.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Very good.
O: I must state that I'm totally in love with Tired Hands. I want to marry these guys.

16 oz. can dated 8/30/17

Pours cloudy hazy opaque gold with a creamy white foam head. Smells like blueberries, tangerine, grapefruit, melons, passionfruit, guava, pineapple, tropical mango, lemony citrus, some oats, caramelized bready malts, with spicy woodsy dank floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like piquant blueberry, tangerine, grapefruit, honeydew melon, passionfruit, guava, pineapple, tropical mango, lemon zest, some oats, caramelized bready crackery malts, with spicy dank woodsy floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate smooth carbonation. Overall a really nice IPA.
