8 oz. pour on tap at the brewery poured into their flute-like glass, unknown brewing/kegging date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - light yellow-orange coloration; high hop haze (cannot read through); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge into a finger head remaining throughout the drinking

S: 9/12 - some typical Simcoe hop aromas - pine, resin and slight citrus also picking up on some passion fruit and other citrus notes; no alcohol; no flaws

T: 17/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's a soft bitterness that gives way to pine cone and grassy notes; in the middle of the mouth, there's a big slap of sweet passionfruit that just takes over; yet, it still finishes dry and inviting; no detectable alcohol

M: 5/5 - high carbonation; moderate body from the passionfruit puree; moderate hop oils from Simcoe; super drinkable and refreshing

O: 9/10 - hands down the best beer of the TH excursion - I absolutely loved the admixture of passionfruit and pine that this beer offered as one of the best fruit-forward IPAs that I've ever had the pleasure of tasting; highly recommended for a growler/trading

TOTAL - 44/50

On tap at TH. And then in a growler at home.

As if Mago Tago wasn't enough, they had to do the same beer but with passionfruit instead. Impenetrably cloudy pour, orange-yellow in color, with a finger of foamy white head that retained well and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Loads of sweet passionfruit in the nose, lighter aroma of zesty citrus and wildflowers. A juicy blast of passionfruit in the taste up front, lightly tangy, citrusy Simcoe hop notes coming in shortly after, bringing in a good balancing bitterness, undertones of freshly cut grass. Crisp mouthfeel, pleasant and medium bodied, far too drinkable. Hopefully this one makes more appearances in the future...it's better than Mago Tago.

Beer was growled on 12/20 and poured Xmas eve.

Pours cloudy, pale yellow with a nice white head. Smells a little messy... Big juice, white pepper, and fruity hops all just sort of crash into each other.

The flavor irons everything together magnificently. Just... Goodness. Hops and pepper up front moving quickly into a fabulous melange of tropical fruit hops and actual, literal tropical fruit juice. The sign and signified meet up, and they're not even pissed at one another, they get along like a pair if Irish Catholic high school classmates having an unexpected reunion in the DUI holding pen.

Pours opaque golden yellow. Smells of stone fruit, yeast, and malt. Tastes intensely of bitter fruit and hops. Feel is thick and chewy with minimal booziness. Overall: not my favorite from Tired Hands, but pretty darn good. Light and refreshing compared to a lot of tired hands' beers.

Served on tap at the Fermentaria.

A: A nice hazy, deep yellow with a bone white head.
S: Fruity nose.
T: A bit overly sweet and some bitterness. Passion fruit throughout.
F: Smooth with a lasting bitterness.
O: Other than being a little sweet for me, this is an awesome beer.
