on tap at the brewery

Pours crystal clear light golden orange, large fluff of white head.

Nose filled with plenty of citrusy orange peel, bitter hops and a floral undertone. Soft sweetness with caramel and breadiness.

Familiar TH aggressive hoppiness up front - citrus peel, orange, a little spicy. Lightly sweet with caramel and a touch of honey. Crisp and dry finish.

Medium body, nice carbonation, creamy and sticky on the tongue. Another solid, in-your-face hopped up ale from the crew at TH. I look forward to every single one of their (D)IPAs, and for good reason.

32oz growler filled 12/30/12, enjoyed 12/31/12. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Clear bright orange, with a nice finger and a half of white frothy head. Leaves some clean, sticky lacing.

Smell: Big resnious pine of up front. In fact, I haven't noticed a beer bering so pine forward since the first time I had PtE. Some clean citrus fruits. A nice honey sweetness also comes out on the nose.

Taste: Again, lots of pine. A slight citrus, but very resinous and bitter throughout the palate. A nice caramel, honey sweetness tries to balance, but the taste is just dominated by hops.

Mouthfeel: Quite bitter, with a nice prickly carb. Quite drinkable given the full frontal assault of hops. A light hint of booze.

Overall: A really nice aggressive IPA. The most 'in your face' beer I've had yet fron Tired Hands.

Served on-tap at the Brewpub. Reviewed from notes.

A - Pours clear golden yellow with a bubbly one finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of intense citric fruit rind, piney hops, pale malt and a touch of honey. A very nice nose on this one.

T - Starts off with a nice mix of citric fruit and piney hops that are strong throughout. Hints of pale malt and a touch of honey sweetness help round it all out. Finish is a little sweet with a decent amount of hop bitterness, lingering on the palate long after the finish.

M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel with plenty of bitterness.

O - A very nice IPA. It is very hoppy yet it remains easy to consume. Another excellent hoppy beer from Tired Hands.
