BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tired Hands Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
tiredhands.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Crushable IPA. Brewed with crispy German Pilsner malt, wheat, malted oats, and fresh lemon juice. Hopped rotationally and intensely with Galaxy and Simcoe. That's right... we intend to brew Handbier a bunch and maybe switch up the hops every once in a while based on what we think will make it a more refined and snappy juicy little number. Who knows though! Maybe we'll just keep groovin' on the Galaxy and Simcoe duet. This iteration of Handbier is oozing with notes of peach, lemon-lime, green grass, and summer breeze coconut.

Very pale clear yellowish-green with a solid soft white sheet of film left behind by the blanket of foam.

Smell is light, but does exhibit some lemon, dank weeds and biscuit.

Taste is straw, hay and biscuit with hints of lime, corn and mint.

This one's super frothy, but light in body, finishing semi-dry.

Papaya whip hue; semi-cloudy appearance; prominent head; sticky lacing. Nose is lemon; rye bread; peach; a hint of tropical fruit; manicured tennis lawns. Taste follows with emphasis on lemon juice, finishing with a gentle whisper of peach on the back end. The feel is a delicate melange of hops that coat the tongue with precision, while offering just enough bite to assert the style. For a crushable, session IPA, this is on point. Well done.

Pours pale yellow gold, cloudy with a 2 finger off-white head - looks very much like white grapefruit juice. Aroma is lightly sweet with grapefruit and lemon and orange notes with a hint of stone fruit in the back, maybe peach or apricot. Taste is similar but some pineapple notes too but mostly lemon tang. Thin body with low malt and a moderate bitterness that kicks in midway through and lingers to the finish. Bright flavor makes it really perfect. No off flavors at all. Just really well done.

For the awesome 4.5% this is a big beer, full of flavor from the bright hops. The moderate bitterness really helps to give it a boost away from the "aromatic sweet" NEIPAs out there. God I wish I had this around my area!
