One of the most impressive IPA's I've ever tasted. Brutally smooth despite the massive ABV, drinkable and then some. Great looks, with the classic hazy-orangey-fresh look of Tired Hands... Juicy, explosive tropical smell, like diving in a pool of fresh-squeezed juice, pineapples and naked girls in Hawaii. Outrageous. So outrageous

This poured out as a clear looking copper color with a thin white head on top. The retention is very thin but there is a decent lacing on the glass. The smell isn't as strong as I was hoping for but it does have a subtle earthy pine aroma on the nose. The taste of the beer is big, lots of sweet malt with a punishing amount of hops. Nice resin-like and citrusy pine flavors collide with the massive malt backbone. The mouthfeel is sticky, with a slick oily body and nicely carbonated. Overall at nearly 12% this beer is dangerously drinkable, it's hard to sit back and just sip it. Very good Imperial IPA.

On tap at the brewcafe

Appearance: hazy vibrant orange with a medium fluffy white head.

Nose: Big tropical fruits, plenty of sweetness. No malts to speak of. The nose is fairly unassuming compared to the huge flavor profile.

Taste: Tons and tons of mango, papaya, grapefruit, and juicy pineapple. It's a big sticky, sweet beer, but it the sweetness is necessary to balance out the intense bitterness. The alcohol isn't present at all, but its still a slow, dessert-type, sipper thanks to the intensity of flavor.

Mouthfeel: a bit flat like most Tired Hands stuff but it works fine with the taste.

Overall: This should be a cult classic like Pliny the Younger. One of my new favorites.

Poured from a 1L growler filled 3/8.

Pours a nice, hazy gold. There isn't a whole lot of head, but there is a lot of sticky lacing left behind.

Tropical fruit aroma fills the nose, there is a hint at the amount of alcohol, but overpowering. The aroma is the star of this show.

First taste is a creamy mango fruitiness...There is still little evidence of the ABV.

Mouthfeel is very nice. It's creamy and has a nice bit of oiliness to it. Really makes you crave another sip.

This is is a pretty solid beer. It's deceptively drinkable at 11.5%. Just a touch more carbonation would be nice, but that is minor. This should be brewed again, it might be much for regular rotation, but once or twice a year would be perfect!
