Pours a fully clouded yellow, moderate cap of froth. Strong notes of grapefruit, citrus, floral hops, mildly piney and grassy. Taste brings full spectrum of hop qualities - bitter, rind and pith -, mild, lightly grainy pale malt profile and some lingering alcohol notes. Medium bodied, touch more carbonation than preferred. Really bitter and hoppy, lingering qualities only downside.

32oz brewery filled growler. Hazed gold (almost a grapefruit color) with a rich bright-white head. Lots of sticky spotty lacing left behind. The aroma is fresh, herbal and fruity, with a bit more of a zesty aggressiveness underneath. Soft doughy maltiness hangs along the back. The taste profile is soft up front with juicy white grapes, light tropical fruit and some herbal textures. An underlying crisp citric presence leaves lingering leafy bitterness and pine in the finish. Doughy malt balances this well. Medium bodied with a crisp feel up front that segues into more of a slick creaminess across the back. Alcohol is well hid but does start to wear its welcome out after a while. I initially liked this but the more I worked through the growler, the more I realized that the combination of Nelson Sauvin hops (of which this features plenty of) and high alcohol here just didn’t mesh that well and I actually got a little bored with this after about a glass and a half. This was interesting (in a good way mostly) but I wish the overall drinkability had been a little better.

1L growler, filled 2/7/13, drank 2/8/13
DFH IPA glass

A: Pours a really light yellow orange. Almost piss yellow. Some hazy on it. Good carb on growler. Layer of bright white head. Leaves some good lacing.

S: This smells of more earthy herbaceous smell here. Maybe some garlic and onion. Some pine notes. Light malt bill.

T: Up front you get that strange herb like flavor. Thin malt bill. Dry finish. Hop bitterness.

M: Medium bodied.

Thanks to baybum for this growler!

Pours a nearly pure yellow with a very tall white head, pretty unique appearance for an IPA and really striking.

Smell is of lemon and other bright citrus, some wet grass, something vaguely like a urinal but I mean that in the best possible way.

Taste is surprisingly sweet, almost like lemon drop candy or lemon cough drops. Very bright character overall, almost tangy. Some moderate floral notes. Bready malt profile in the finish. Odd flavor profile, especially for a DIPA, but pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel is unusual, good level of carbonation but the body is thick and syrupy and sticky. Not exactly quaffable but definitely pleasant.

Unusual IPA but enjoyable, another strange but likable beer from Tired Hands.

7.5/10
