Notes: Double IPA that we brew with gobs of spelt and oats. Hopped into oblivion with Citra and Amarillo. Featuring absolutely beautiful artwork by @mikeillustrated. Creamy, pungent, and extremely citrusy. Welcome back you old, creepy, weird, bio-corpse thing.

Had this next to Double Birth and they both were different from one another but equal quality.
L: The look is opaque with hops
S: You know what your going to get here, tons of hop aroma
T: So much juicy sweet tropical hops and I am getting some berry flavor on the back end.
O: I've had the best of the best from the New England style IPAs. I couldn't say that any of them are better than this, maybe on par. This is including king jjjuliusss, very hazy, ddh fort point, etc. Probably my favorite tired hands beer ipa, even though the milkshakes are unique in their own right.

Canned 12/7/16, "Plugged In." Pours a turbid burnt orange with 1.5 finger head that dies down after a few minutes and leaves lace covering the glass. Aromatics aren't mind-blowing but very well defined. Melon, berry, and papaya notes dominate. Soft and delicate for 9.2%. Taste is dank wet hops abound with stonefruit, lychee, white grape that leads to a unique creamy tropical fruit smoothie thing going on. Somehow this is accomplished with much more body than the "Milkshakes" of theirs that I've tried. Absolutely killer. Tired Hands knocks it out of the park once again.

Poured from a 32 oz growler.

A - Pours a hazy/opaque orange tan color with a white soapy lacing ring, low carbonation.

S - Tropical fruit/citrus is all over the nose on this one! Papaya, mango, tangerine, juicy red grapefruit, spicy, and peppery aroma.

T - Follows the nose - full of pungent tropical fruit, mango, papaya, nectarine, red grapefruit, and a bitter, piney finish that lingers.

M - Medium body with very minimal/gentle carbonation.

O - The ABV is pretty well hidden in this beer.

Poured into a Tree House glass a really nice cloudy yellow/orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger white head, which also leaves some really nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, papaya, melon), piney. The taste is really nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, papaya, melon), nice pineyness, some nice sweetness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a very tasty brew. To me not really a NEDIPA. Orange Julius! Addictive! Milk Shake!. Glad to have gotten a chance to try this brew again. Thanks Larry!

This beer makes Raul more content than gunning down a newb at third base trying to go first to third on a single. Wapaow! Got you, sucka! Hella melon, hella juice like Mrs. Piggy going straight HAM at her wedding. Kermit, watch out!

From draft at TH. Classic TH cloudy, straw-colored IPA. Delicious nose of sweet citrus, and a dense but smooth palate despite the high 9.2% abv. The alcohol heat is well hidden.

Pint can with Lisa at home. Pretty nice but a bit boozy in the nose.
