16 ounce can in a tulip IPA glass. Four weeks fresh.

Pale egg washed yellow color, clouded by oats. 2F dense white cap that drops and leaves sticky lacing.

Unique aroma; floral perfume, mint, pine, lemon, and citrus peel.

Dank-ish oats, lemon and grapefruit flavors.

The oats help bring the mouthfeel to a medium level. The hop feel is a bit harsh, medicinal like.

Flavorful and balanced. The abv is right. Lacks smoothness yet still pretty good.

Notes via stream of consciousness: A very hazy golden body is capped by a thumb's width of bright white foam that holds well. The aroma is citrusy with orange and distant grapefruit, resinous and pithy, piney, earthy, and a hint herbal. The flavor brings in a fairly basic malt that's light and seems to consist of 2-row and oats. Everything in the aroma remains with some additional floral and spicy character as well as berry, passionfruit, apricot, and lemon. Don't get too excited though as these notes aren't really that bright, they're all there but they don't jump out at you. The bitterness is solid given the amount of malt that's there and it finishes dry, pithy, citrusy, lightly spicy, earthy, resinous, and even a little bit herbal. In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp. It's definitely a hoppy beer, and somewhat unique.

Pours with an epic, frothy head that takes a long time to fade. Subtle hop/grain aroma is enticing. I bought this because it didn't say juicy, hazy, tropical etc - typically avoid beers that fit that description. Color is an opaque lemon. Flavor is pleasantly bitter hops with a bit of a lemon rind like twang - quite good. I don't get juicy or tropical out of this beer and for me. that's a good thing. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side, but creamy. Bottom line - this is pretty damn good and I would buy it again. I wouldn't consider it a NEIPA - American Pale Ale is perfect.

First time trying Tired Hands. This is a classic pale ale. Easy to drink. Unique flavor profile. Great mouthfeel. Enjoying it more as it warms. Drinking from 16 oz can in 4 pack.

Hazy yellow green with 3 fingers of milkshake like white head.

Smells of juiced pine needles and Sichuan peppers, followed by orange juice.

The taste is of fresh Cashmere, dank and delicious hop pellets in the glass. Hints of orange and lemon zest.

Medium body with juicy feel, moderate cabonation.

I got this at the Liquor Barn in Redding, CA, drinking it in Redding Feb 16, 2023.
