I really enjoyed this one, unexpected great flavor from the hop, well-made. A rare clear beer from Tired Hands. Had on tap at Clarkville Pizza in West Philly. Great with food.

Hazy pale straw with two fingers of lasting, creamy, near-white head. Solid lacing.

Melon and papaya in the nose, with a hint of lemongrass behind.

Dull, light, earthy tropical fruits (underripe pineapple) and honeydew in the taste. There’s a little creaminess in there, too, that combines with the fruit in a way that reminds me of some sort of exotic Starburst. Peppery aftertaste and more lemongrass.

Full bodied for the style with light creaminess to the feel. Moderate carbonation.

A nice change of pace New England-style APA.

Hazy golden yellow pour with two fingers of white head.
Smells citrusy, lemons lead the way. A bit grassy.
Taste follows, lemongrass, slightly green pineapple.
Medium body with spritzy carbonation.
Overall not my favorite from TH but still a good brew.

Pours a hazy pale golden coloration with a medium, frothy head. Smell is bright and hoppy, with notes of white grape, blueberry, papaya and orange as well as a light, grassy dankness. Taste is similarily bright and hoppy, with notes of white grape, orange and papaya dominating and hints of blueberry and a certain grassy/herbal, almost peppery dankness. Finishes with a ligh bitterness and hop burn, turning a little more dank in the aftertaste. Soft, pillowy moutheel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation.

What this lacks in a certain oomph, it makes up for with a lovely, subtle balance of citrus, tropical and orchard notes. The light herbal, peppery dankness works particularly well with the expressive white grape notes, almost giving this a certain Riesling character. Terrific soft and fluffy mouthfeel as well.
