Thank you CanConPhilly for grabbing this for me
16 oz can, dated 1/5/17, poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden orange with a three finger white head.

S- Some sweet clementines with rind, citrus and citrus zest, slightly dank, mild slightly sweet malts.

T- Clementines are there but rather mild, good amount of citrus zest along with some rind bitterness, some soft pale malts, finish is piney.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- Clementines are very mild for a Tired Hands beer. It is still a solid beer, just thought it would be a little more of a juicy bomb.

Little bit tropical on the nose with some citrus notes. Like the mouth feel. Decent bitterness. Decent citrus notes on the finish. Overall, had hoped for more but still enjoyable.

Looks like a typical juicy Tired Hands beer. Tastes of pine and citrus hops with a strong hint of clementine zest. Feels more crisp and less juicy than a lot of their beers. Not my favorite of theirs, but really dig the subtleties, like orange rind and definite hop flavor that set this apart from being just another TH juice bomb.

Hazy pale golden body with a fluffy bone-white head. Clementine is noticeable on he nose with some dank grass and tropical fruits. Body is very citrusy, followed by fresh grass, and a bit of prickly juice. Feel is smooth, medium bodied, slight carbonation prickle. A good fruited hoppy beer.

I'm excited about this beer as I've heard about it and was finally able to get a growler filled from the brewery(thanks Amy). Looks like one of the Tired Hands beers, really cloudy and super enviting. I've never personally smelled anything similar to this so far. It's got a weedy dank pithy scent up front(tangerine cush) along with melon and some sweet citrus elements that are sort of behind the rest. Really excited. Nice flavor. I get the slightly sweet citrus, with a mild quick hop bite(some people call this onion like) that mellows with drinking then a nice finish. Such a gentle flavor with decent carbonation. Great aftertaste will keep you coming back for more. I really like this beer. Different than so many other APA's in a really juicy way !
