On tap at the source. Bright hazy yellow color with a two finger white head. Decent retention and lacing. Bright fruity aroma with grapefruit and some earthy pine. The taste followed with strong tropical and citrus along with dank earthy notes. Silky feel and medium bodied. Overall a fantastic beer. Outstanding pale ale.

I received a couple of these beer's in a trade so I got right to it with this one. Tired hands has a good reputation for producing some outstanding brews so I was excited to see what the hype was all about.
Poured a nice hazy opaque light orange/amber. Smells of citrus and pine, maybe a little bit of straw? Holy carbonation! I definitely was not a fan of the carbonation, it came across like it was brewed with brettanomyces and had that tinge of funk/spice, but that's just my opinion. The ABV % was a total downer. I appreciate a good complex NEIPA that sneaks in a proper high ABV without you noticing so yeah, maybe I'm a little biased. I'm on the fence if I will drink the remaining cans or just use them in trades while they're fresh.
