growler poured into taster - thanks brad

Golden orange color with a light haze. Bubbled head leaves splotchy lacing along the glass with a mild filmy retention.

Piny, citric hop bitterness aroma. Aggressive with some warming alcohol and milder malt sweetness with caramel.

Bitter pine dankness on the tongue right up front. Residual sticky resin and touches of grapefruit peel and citrus juice. Malt backbone fights its way through with caramel and toasted bread. Finishes bitter and warm with a decent alcohol punch.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and long-lasting on the tongue. Another nice hoppy (D)IPA from Tired Hands, although it wasn't one of my favorites (since they've made so many different ones already).

Had this on 2015-10-15 in Columbia, PA from a fresh growler from The Fridge

A - Very hazy straw-gold with a 1-finter white head that fades quickly leaving little lace.

S - Fresh wet hops, mild dank, mango, orange flesh, light pine and a little biscuit. .

T - Orange and pineapple flesh, pepper, earthy spice, honey, light malt, some alcohol sweetness and a TON of fresh hop bud flavors that linger with some fruit sweetness into a pretty bitter aftertaste.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Very resinous and prickly.

O - Be prepared for a big lupulin shift after a glass of this brew. They didn't skimp on the hops; that's for sure. I'm enjoying it but in general, prefer more balance in a DIPA.

Pours a pale hazy almost lemonade color with less than a finger of head. The nose is bright with citrus hops. The flavor profile is also citrus forward but it is very light-bodied. There is a dry hop finish but it is nothing extraordinary. The alcohol is well hidden and it drinks like a low alcohol IPA (which means it can sneak up on someone quick).
