64oz growler generously shared by Pete, thanks! Enjoyed from a Th wine glass.

Brew pours a murky yellow with a nice standard IPA head...looks like an unfiltered IPA. Nose is the highlight. Big and bold citric fruit notes. Easy drinker, nice flavor, very soft. Citra...exactly what you would expect. One of the better beers I have had from tired hands.

thanks to my brother for sharing this, enjoyed chilled from the 1liter in a tulip.

The color is a very hazed almost smoothie creamy light amber with white cap and ring of beads after settling with thin lace left. The smell is tangy citrus and light melon with subtle yeast adding a fruity aroma with subtle dank herb scent complimenting. The feel is gently bitter with very juicy acidity and medium carbonation with smooth texture of an unfiltered ipa and finish is mostly dry with mild astringency.

The flavor has a decent amount of citra, a lot of tangy juicy hop flavors with light berry in the yeast with mild floral aspect and gentle alcohol in the taste with some mild spice and light astrinent flavors toward the finish. Overall a decent single hop IPA, very copius citra in the taste...not the ultimate best example but very drinkable and does a good job of presenting the Citra hops qualities.

On tap at TH.

First Level: Nelson Sauvin
Second Level: Galaxy
Third Level: Citra

Hazy yellowish pour with a small, foamy, white head; great retention and lots of lacing. Lots of fruity hop notes in the nose, as would be expected, citrus and tropical fruit, musky, and definitely a bit catty (this is fine). Taste was light and crisp, lots of oily orange and grapefruit rind, notes of pine and ammonia, malts coming in as a biscuity afterthought. Light-medium body, smooth, crisp, easily drinkable. All hail Citra!

Growler filled on 5/3 pour into a teku

A- A hazy golden straw color with a two finger white head.

S- Pungent tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, honeydew, fruity, some earth spice, smells amazing.

T- Tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, earth spices, bitter pine/grapefruit rinds, good balance, but not nearly as pungent as the nose.

M- Smooth, crisp, meduim body.

O- Another tasty beer from Tired Hands, just wish the fruitiness of the nose was in the taste of the beer.
