Tired Hands HopHands, my first TH brew ever! Canned two weeks ago so pretty fresh especially considering I acquired this in a trade and it took 4 or 5 days to ship here to Idaho. This beer pours beautiful a hazy yellow/orange almost like a combo of Pinnaple juice and OJ. The nose is of fresh pinnaple and other light tropical fruits like mangos. A bit citrus in there too. Taste is very smooth and packed with Pinnaple, mangos, lemon and grapefruit rinds. Some light grass there too with a very small but yet still discernible malt presence. Medium silky creamy body that coats your mouth. Finishes fairly dry with a nice crisp citrus pith like bitterness. I really enjoyed this and was surprised to see the Bros' gave it a 64? To each their own I suppose.

Certainly is cloudy. Reminds me of orange juice. True to the NEIPA trend, at least, even though this isn't an IPA.

The taste doesn't knock my socks off, and the head tends to be thin when I order it on tap. It has a good texture, and is well put together overall, though.

Would order again.

Nice cloudy pineapple juice like color with thick head poured from a growler from the brew pub (thanks Amy). Citrus scent with grapefruit and orange, slight malt background. Flavor a bit muted but decent watery citrus with very mild bitterness lingering, slight piney finish. Not very carbonated (at least from the tap) and really easy to drink.

Pours a muddy orange color with a short lived white crackling head. Aroma is of stewed hops, resin and a bit of grapefruit. The taste was super acidic almost to the point one might think infection. Bright hops with some orange peel to them. Malt is nondescript and the carbonation is at a decent level. Too acidic for the style.

Cloudy and straw-colored with a fluffy head. Smell is piney, fruity, and floral. Taste is citrus! Nice bitterness and some pineapple and fruits. Light body, creamy and smooth. Very refreshing. Tasty stuff.
