thanks to tenderbanson69 for sharing this growler, enjoyed in an oversized Tired hands branded wine glass.

The color is pale golden with thick hase and head with white color and thick lace, retention is very good. the smell is fragrant with hop and light lemony aromatics with mild malt and subtle fruity yeast ester. the feel is slightly bitter with a smooth body and moderately low carbonation with tangy texture and semi-dry finish.

The flavor has a juicy almost lemon zest quality with the citrus hop flavors dominating and some slight grainy flavor from the wheat with gentle yeast in the taste. The alcohol is not very apparent in the taste until the second glass. Overall a pretty decent wheat based Imperial IPA, very nice hop aromatics and tangy flavor -very drinkable.

a: extremely cloudy light orange, nice head retention. It looks creamy and beautiful.

s: big ripe citruses, like oranges and grapefruits. Sort of a prickly pine note. Also a creamy, buttery smell.

t: Very nice bitterness right away, that fades away into a sweet, juicy, oat-like flavor.

mf: the wheat truly shines in this one. Very creamy and silky. Medium carbonation. Very lasting silkiness. Medium body. No heaviness whatsoever.

First Tired Hands beer and I am impressed. This growler will go down very easily. Drinks very much like Sucks; Higher abv, but a lower bitterness and lighter body. The alcohol is expertly hidden.
