@ Fermentaria

Solid cloudy pale gold under a head of thick, white mousse. Aromas of grapefruit, mellow alcohol, melon, and light weed. Thick hoppy flavor, yet easy to drink...grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and dank spiciness. Soft medium body - not too heavy - dry finish. Another typically good TH hoppy beer.

Poured from growler

L-Hazy, light straw color, 1/2 inch white fluffy head that quickly settles into a white cap............medium lacing that quickly slides down the side of the glass

S-sweety fruity hops in the midst of fermentation..........passion fruit, guava, papaya, slight grapefruit

T-Fruity hops, sweet..........slight bitter finish.........finish of grapefruit, lemon rind and pine

F-less than medium, a bit crisp on the tongue.......

O-Good but not even close to being worth the price of a growler

5/9/17 - On tap at TRIA in Philly. Served in their tall stemmed, signature T tecu glass. Cloudy with firm white head. Looking good. Couldn't quite grasp the aroma, but the taste was nice and crisp. A tasty pour from Tired Hands, but I've enjoyed so many others of theirs a bit more than this one.

Had from a growler, purchased from the brewpub

L: Cloudy medium golden pour... unfiltered goodness. Thick white head. Great lacing.

S: Loads of hops. Tending towards the citrus... grapefruit and lemon... mango. Juicy as hell.

T/F: Follows the nose. Medium malt backbone gives way to a nice dank juicy hop blast. Super balanced... lots of grapefruit. Lemon and pineapple... kiwi. Medium bodied... smooth for an IPA. Bitterness present but balanced. Finish is fruity and delicious.

O: Another awesome DIPA from Tired Hands. An easy beer to drink WAY too much of. Just outstanding.

Poured at the Fermentaria
This is the first Tired Hands beer I've tried that I simply did not care for at all. I see a lot of positive reviews so maybe this was just a recent batch issue.

Look: Hazy hay. It looks as good in a glass as any of the turbid Tired Hands beers.

Smell: Not getting much from the nose. Some tropical fruit, piney hops, and grass. But this isn't a stink bomb.

Taste: This is where the beer went south for me. I got butter, some grass, citrus hop notes, and something that lingered on my tongue that made me immediately give my 4 oz. pour to someone else at the table.

Feel: Greasy. That's the first word that comes to mind.

Overall: Maybe this just isn't my cup of tea. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I just can't find anything redeeming in the taste profile, and actually was pretty put off with just two sips.

Tired Hands Sea of Green

Growler from a friend. Filled 6/2, drank 6/13. Still insanely fresh.

A: Hazy, big frothy head, moderate lacing, and (although, maybe it's the name) a faint green tint to the beer. 4.25/5

S: Big nose, pungent, super hoppy. Notes of pineapple, orange, and a faint tart lime smell. 4.5/5

T: Much sweeter fruit notes when compared to the nose. Just as hoppy. Similar notes to the nose, plus a little sweet alcohol. Not much malt to report. 4.25/5

M: Medium bodied, dank and sticky, moderate carbonation, finishes dry. 4/5

O: Very solid DIPA. Crushable for 8% ABV. I will definitely seek this out as its a rotating DIPA for them. 4.25/5

On draft this was wonderful. Standard tired hands ipa, bursting with fruity floral dry hop aroma, extremely cloudy, great body. Somewhat sweet on the back; though that is the style these days. Overall excellent
