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.
