Poured into a chilled Guinness tulip style glass. Head was mildly frothy about 3/4 inch high. Picked up a noticeable honey bouquet immediately. The color was cloudy orange-yellow. The first sip was very pleasant, clean and crisp as others have described. Moderate hops, slightly smooth and not typical of the IPAs I have had with lots of citruses, pine and sour. Purposely slowly sipped and savored the glass over about 45 minutes and found it to be an excellent brew, now one of my favorites especially since I live about 30 minutes from Tired Hands. Have yet to go to the brewery but will now do so in the next week. I rank this as one of the best IPAs I have had as a moderately experienced beer drinker.

Can dated 10/25/18. Poured into tulip.
Look is pale golden haze with a fluffy white head. Nose is big fruity hops, with notes of tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and mango if I had to choose, plus lemon rind leading the way, along with some berry in the background. Taste starts with the tropical notes up front before adding in the lemon rind in the middle, then a bit of earthiness comes up as well toward the end before a semi bitter and dry finish, lingering light earthiness and lemon rind. Mouthfeel is light feeling but not thin, more fluffy as is typical of lots of tired hands IPAs in my experience. Overall nice light, fluffy, and dry IPA. Not a huge fan of earthy hop character in general but I think it works as well as possible here with the dryness and fruit forward nose.

Had this on 2018-07-07 at their Fermataria brewery and again on 2018-08-04 from a 16oz canned on 2018-06-28. On 2018-12-03 I had a can from this past June that's been in my fridge the whole time. It's held up very well and I'm enjoying it.

A - Hazy gold with a one-finger white head and very good lace

S - Plenty of pineapple, cracker, pine and hop bud

T - Pineapple, biscuit, apricot, earthy spice, pine, a taste of honey and mild-moderate hop bud dankness. Nice orange zest bitterness in the finish, which lingers pleasantly.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Soft at first then a little prickly in the drying finish. Really nice feel.

O - My kind of hazy IPA, which is juicy but the pine, citrus and reasonable bitterness are still there ala a West Coast IPA. Good stuff on draft and from the can.

Really nice light IPA, crisp and refreshing, honey comes through nicely. Almost a session IPA.
