I uploaded the pic, and it's from July 2014. Then, the beer was super berry flavored, dank citrus and one of my favorite beers EVER.

I had it recently and the beer is not like it once was. The pour was light yellow, way less creamy, and while it was an above average IPA, it was not what it once was. Really hope Jean get's this one back to its roots.

On draft at the Brewcafe on August 2. The blueberry flavor is subtle on this one, as opposed to Such Passion and Fuzzy Yellow, where the fruit additions really come through. Still an excellent Tired Hands IPA.

Growler shared by Chris. Thanks man.

Stoplight yellow body with a quarter inch of white head. Fresh, dank hop aroma. Tropical fruits abound. Blueberry character is mild. This is an IPA first and foremost. Blueberry character emerges late palate, offering a mild sweetness. Interesting, tasty, fun.

I appreciate the 1 litre share from my brother Tim, thanks! Enjoyed chilled in a glass.

The color is blue as advertised with white head and fine bead with sporadic lace that sticks. The smell is mild blueberry with a lot of mosaic/simcoe type scent which is basically citrus/herbal and a yeast ester that is earthy. The feel is tangy/juicy with mild earthy and bitter texture with slight juicy quality and light yeasty element with gentle astringency and semi-dry finish without any alcohol noticeable.

The taste is pleasant with a nice amount of hop bitterness and yet not much blueberry in the taste, mild citrus from the hops with slight tangy and herbal accent wiht astringent flavor present into the drying and bitter finish. Overall a good IPA, but blueberry is so mild it might as well just be food coloring...I guess there may have been fermentable sugar too. I think this is pretty decent drinkability-wise

32 oz growler, filled on 7/29, poured into a teku

A- A hazy reddish purple with a two finger light purple head.

S-Tropical fruits, citrus, some blueberries, slightly dank, hints of pine.

T- Some blueberries, citrus, some tropical fruits, finish is piney/dank.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- After letting my growler sit for a few days in the fridge I feel that I am getting a little more blueberry than when I had a 4 oz draft. The IPA bitterness seems to overwhelm the blueberries a good bit, but it is still a tasty beer.
