Pineapple, passion fruit, orange zest and mangoes. Cracker malt backbone. Medium bodied and creamy. Middling sweetness that finishes pine and dry bitter. Pretty good.

Golden yellow, cloudy with a small white head that leaves some great lacing. Notes of light tropical fruit, mild pine, grapefruit pulp and a touch of herbal bite. Crisp, light medium body, very drinkable and very dry. Bitterness is soft but then builds and lingers a bit. Tired Hands doesn't make a bad beer, but this isn't their best IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from growler-hazy yellow color with nice lacing S and head that stays. Little to no hint of hops, fruits or anything else. Know they are there but not evident. Taste has a slight fruity flavor that is retained on the palate and the hops finish clean on the backside. An easy one to drink but seems a little subtle for a DIPA!

4.25/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives extremely cloudy with a meringue-like head; the liquid honey colored; a decent amount of lacing remains

Smell: Citrusy and tropical tones

Taste: Tropical tones forward, with papaya dominant; floral, bright citrus flavors build with a minty element developing through the middle; moderate bitterness, but dry, through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice DIPA that avoids the sweetness from the malt bill; more representative of the newer generation of DIPAs

64oz growler personally purged and filled by Jean. Thanks! Stored in cold and darkness as promised. Light gold hazy bodied beer with a finger of slowly settling white foam and excellent lacing. Fresh hoppy nose of citrus and tropical fruits and pine. Very aromatic.

Tasty blend of grapefruit and other tropical fruit hop notes with lesser pine and floral notes. Pithy, assertive bitterness, very subdued malt backbone underneath, minimal sweetness. Booze emerges a bit more as the beer warms; was totally unnoticed on tap version. Finishes dry with a long and lingering bitterness.

Medium-full bodied with smooth, moderate carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Great job!

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Poured a hazy golden-orange color with a half inch or so of white head; moderate retention and lacing. Expectedly hop-dominant aroma, pine and citrus, spread over biscuity malts. Flavor mirrors the smell, classic AIPA profile, pine and citrus hops in charge, biscuity malts in the background, pine needle bitterness in the finish. Crisp and drying, light-medium body, some alcohol warmth is felt, but the flavor is untarnished. Pretty nice crack at an IPA.

On tap at Tired Hands. Pours a light orange color with a good white head and some nice sticky lacing. The nose carries really nice notes of pine and citrus, as well as some slightly-floral/perfume elements that I associate with Amarillo, yet never really know how to describe. Flavor is similar. Touch of malt in the background followed up with a really nice hop presence. Body is light-medium with a bitter, dry finish. Another winner.

House double ipa on draft at Tired Hands.

Pours a a pale, cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Pine forward, bitter aroma, Simcoe maybe? Very nice, medium tick, creamy body with an exceptionally dry finish. Flavor falls a little flat and one note compared to some of the other TH beers sampled at the same time, or that might just be my shock to this being the highest ABV offering. Pine and grass bitterness dominate with minimal malt sweetness.
