Pours a light but cloudy lemon juice or grapefruit juice color. Head is a finger that dissipates quickly. The nose is overwhelmingly citrus and especially clementines. Taste is almost sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Again, the clementines dominate, no surprise since the brewer says he used 60 pounds of clementines! This is VERY refreshing and without being cloying or terribly sticky. This brewer and this place are first rate and this beer will convince you if you aren't already. Have t it!

On-tap at Tired Hands Brew Cafe 4/12/13.

A: Cloudy pale yellow color. Almost green like hues. Thin white head and a good amount of lacing throughout. Another nice looking beer from TH.

S: Like Mago Tago the aroma is a thing of beauty. Can sit there and sniff on this all day long. Tons of citrus aroma in this one between the hops and the clementines. Also getting grapefruit, oranges, a bit of lemon.

T: Same as aroma but I'm getting a ton of orange peel in this batch vs. the first batch that TH did. Making this a bit more on the bitter end than I remember the first batch being. With that said this is still the juicy pale ale I remember this beer being the first time around. Definite citrus up front and grassy hop-like dry finish in the end.

M: Mouthful is lightly and perfectly carbonated like most Tired Hands beers are. An easy, delightful drinker

O: Absolutely love this beer. Hope Tired Hands keeps brewing it over and over. Would love to have a growler of this on hand throughout the warmer months. Beautiful citrus aromas, juicy yet bitter citrus flavors on the mouth. More please.
