I enjoyed this on tap at the Fridge in Lancaster for the Anniversary Party.

The color is golden with thick hazed appearance and small white head with lace that sticks. The smell has a good amount of hop aroma with citrus quality and yeast has a fruit-like ester. The feel is good with body moderate and light in sweetness with a slight bitterness mid palate into a mildly astringent tangy finish.

The taste is very expressive with hop flavor that has citrus and fruity quality with light lemon zest and hint of bitter orange with tropical and floral aspect with dry and spicy element in the finish with subtle alcohol.
The taste is great and this is very drinkable an IPA I would return to if the opportunity were to present itself again it tastes like Mago Tago without the mango perhaps.

Had this on 2015-09-05 in Lancaster, PA at The Fridge on-tap

A - Very hazy yellow with a 2-finger white head and nice lace.

S - Mango, citrus, cracker, spice.

T - Mango, orange, earthy spice, cracker, melon. Hop floral. Mildly bitter finish. Tasty.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Smooth.

O - A very nice IPA. So glad The Fridge is able to get these beers for us.

On draft @ Local 44 in Philly

A gorgeous unfiltered hazy neon yellow color. Amazing nose on this beer. TONS & TONS of citrus, pineapple and mango. The taste follows beautifully with a blast of citrus and tropical flavors up front. Tons of grapefruit / grapefruit pith. Slight bitterness on the backend. A creamy type mouthfeel that leaves you wanting more and more. Tired Hands really nails the hoppy beers. One of the best IPAs I've tasted.

L: Hazy yellow with a ton of foamy head.
S: An unreal amount of citrus, mango, and passion fruit. Trillium-caliber nose on this one.
T: Juicy mango and passion fruit, citrus, oats, minimal hop bite at the end.
F: Medium body with light-medium carbonation.

O: One of my favorite go-to Tired Hands beers.

Very cloudy and creamy looking on the pour. Settles into the glass as a cloudy pale orange body, with a frothy bone white head. Aroma is all pungent tropical fruit; mango, pineapple, citrus, fresh grass, dash of herbs, great hop aroma throughout. Flavor is much of the same with big tropical fruity hops hitting right away, with a fresh, grassy, herbal flavor towards the finish. Tons of fruity hops. The feel is somewhat creamy, with medium carbonation and more creaminess than crispness. This is probably from the oats used and makes this one somewhat unique. All in all a fantastic IPA that packs a ridiculous amount of flavor into 6.8% abv. I would put this up there with the best IPAs I have ever had. This one could compete with some of the best IIPAs too.

Had a bunch on draft, but reviewing from a growler 3 days later. For what its worth, there's no difference.

Pours a bright hazy yellow. Some might say haziness like this is a flaw, but I liove how beers like this look. Its neon electric.

You can smell it as soon as its poured. Big, big tropical fruit. Mango, pear, and passionfruit. This is a citra IPA, but I don't really get lemon, grapefruit, or orange. I get mango.

Taste is almost pure liquified mangoes, with some of the pear from the nose. Its almost hard to believe this isn't brewed with mangoes.

Mouthfeel is nice, its not really something I think about in an IPA, but its not over or under carbed, or off in any way.

Its easy for me to say this is the best IPA I've ever had. If you like fruity hop beers, you will love this.

Served on draft. Hazy orange, almost juice looking. White head, with good retention and lacing. Aromas are bursting with citrus fruits, orange, grapefruit and bitter bright hops. Flavor follows suit. It's amazing how much fruity flavors they packed in here without the use of any fruit. Creamy mouth feel, incredibly crushable.
