Reviewed from notes. Growler shared by someone in the crew - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy yellow under a 1/4-inch thick white head with fades quickly to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Mango sherbet, spices, citrus fruit (lemon/lime, grapefruit), floral, herbal overtones.

T: Complex and nice blend of citrus, peppery spices, herbal, fruity, mild sweetish malts, grainy.

M: Moderate body and medium (growler) carbonation. Finishes with a lingering citrus and peppery spice.

O: Unique and very creative, nicely done.

On tap at TH.

Hazy yellow-orange pour, with a solid half inch of frothy white head; good retention and lacing. In the aroma, toasted corn, lime, black pepper. Lots of sweet lime in the taste, actually quite a bit more than I'd have expected, zest, underlying cilantro and pepper spice, with no real heat going on, a crackery, fresh grain finish. They must have used a good quantity of lime in this, because it actually reminded me a bit of a less sweet / more spicy version of Communication Is the Key Lime Pie--one of my favorites from the brewery. Medium body, smooth and complex mouthfeel. Probably not for everyone, but definitely an interesting brew.

Hazy lightly orange in color, beautiful head and lacing. Good balance of corn sweetness, lime tartness, and sharpness on the back of the throat from the combination of spices/cilantro/chilies. Great, easy drinking beer for Cinco de Mayo. Only Tired Hands could pull this off!

Filled up a 32-oz growler from Tired Hands on 5/6/16 at the brew cafe. Drank with some tacos on a Friday night.

The beer pours a hazy opaque bright yellow - looks like grapefruit juice. Smells of lime pulp & zest upfront with citrus hops & notes of light tropical fruit. Some of the spice peak through such as the chiles and cumin. Perhaps a dashed coriander.

Tastes dry with citrus hop sweetness and lime juice. Chiles are very evident as the beer warms. Spices are more subdued.

Very unique & refreshing beer. Alcohol well in check.
