32 oz. growler poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass.

Appearance - Very pale and hazy body. Nice white head. Great lacing and the surface maintains a thin layer of foam.

Smell - Bright and citrusy when cold. More depth as it warms. The simcoe becomes more prominent. Never seemed malty at all when cold, but I get some of the sweetness now.

Taste - Again, very bright citrus up front. Slight hint of honey. Grainy malt. No real sweetness. The finish has a light bitterness and I think I might even detect a trace of rye after all the other flavors recede.

Mouthfeel - Very light when cold. Maltier as it warms. Medium carbonation.

Overall - This has just enough flavor behind it to be really enjoyable. Tired Hands IPAs always seem very delicate in their flavor. This one is just comes in over the line and turns out to be very good and complex if you can let it warm a bit.

I glanced at the label maybe 75 times before I realized it was a play on “Stoner,” because I am an idiot. It's also their one-year anniversary beer, and the description made it sound like it was if Bell's Wedding Ale was an IPA:

Anyhow, it’s a high-alpha IPA that’s heavily spiced and otherwise fucked with. This was the hoppier of the two, so of course it’s the one BA likes most, but I think Tortoise beats it out. Still, it’s really good. The addition of honey, lime, and actual grapefruit grind productively against the hoppy facsimiles of those flavors. Imagine putting both an actual cherry and a cherry Jolly Rancher in your mouth at the same time. Now imagine that somehow not being disgusting. That’s what this beer is like.
