Had on-tap at the fermentarium.

L: Cloudy light golden pour. Thick foamy white head and great lacing.

S: Sweet grainy malts... tropical fruits... herbal.

T/F: Sweet and juicy... good malt presence and really smooth on the mouthfeel. The tapioca gives it a richness that I wasn't expecting, and it's a typical Tired Hands juicebomb on the hops. Great grapefruit and pineapple. Not bitter for the amount of hops. Great mouthfeel... some of the green tea at the finish.

O: An awesome IPA from Tired Hands... different enough to be interesting but clearly a Tired Hands style juice bomb IPA. Very glad I got to try it.

The smell is somewhat indescribable. It is like the smell of a nicely fragranced hippy girl that just had some mildly dank bong water spilled on her. It is a lovely smell, like something Keller Williams would write a song about. The taste is like what you would expect if you brewed an amazing UPS using fragrant bong water that was accented with a sweet perfume. It is just delightful for a Sunshine Daydream kind of day.

On tap at Fermentaria
Looks like the palest crazy hazy yellow juice bomb I've ever seen
Very mild nose for a 6% IPA.
The green tea leaves an aftertaste that's new for me.
Different, and not in a bad way...
