Looks great. Hazy orange with lots of fluffy white head leaving behind nice lacing. Smell is.....I don’t know what, but I’m not fond of it. Tastes good, albeit somewhat nondescript. Solid beer.

3.83/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Hazy as expected, but despite the light, lemon yellow color to the body, it's not just hazy: it's opaque. Head production is good; retention is nice; lacing is excellent.

Nose is bright, herbal, and citrusy; tropical fruit lurk behind, but the highlights are definitely orange, oregano, cream, ruby red grapefruit, lemon, pepper, and lemongrass. Mango and pineapple round out the profile, but it primarily smells like an orange creamsicle.

Despite the nose, it isn't particularly sweet on the palate. Fairly grainy malt presentation, with the hops adding an almost old-school feel of pine, accented with dried Italian herbs. Hints of citrus, but the modest bitterness - stronger and drier on the finish - prevents any significant citrus peel notes from ever becoming significant.

Lovely creamy yet lively mouthfeel. Carries much more weight than a 6.2% ABV brew should, no doubt at least in part due to the wheat. Fairly dry finish.

I'm a bit torn here. It's a well crafted beer, but it comes across as a little dry and spicy, quite herbal (but not dank) in a way that isn't quite doing it justice. Some more sweetness, either from a higher malt bill (and consequently higher ABV) or the addition of a juicier flavoring hop, would push this into outstanding territory, but for me, it's just good.

Will I enjoy my remaining cans? Absolutely. Would I enjoy this on tap? Equally, absolutely! Would I go out of my way for it or trade for it? No, not specifically.

Traded for this a while ago, as the date on the bottom of the can read either 1/10 of 16 or 18. Regardless of that, this felt and tasted fresh as it went down easily and wasn't reminiscent of their more popular Milkshake offerings. Instead, this felt like something that I would have picked up in Vermont or Massachusetts as this was a typical New England juice bomb-type IPA...

Not a bad pour to this as the liquid was a muted goldenrod with plenty of head to top it off. Lots of rocky foam lingered for a while as there were big clumps of lacing down the back side of my pint glass as I worked my way through this. Lots of floral notes, potpourri, pineapple, and tropical fruit on the nose as there was quite a bit of dankness to the mild aroma. White, dry cheese, citrus slickness, and fruit rind came in on the taste as this was quite varied and heavy after the more mild up-front aspect to this. A bit of crisp evergreen and deep forest came in as this warmed up as the smooth and turgid nature of this beer shone through once I finished it off and fully savored it...

Not a lot of booze here but the Centennial an Simcoe lead me to believe that this was stronger than it was in actuality. Dank, dry, and subtly bitter, this had enough going for it and fit in well with other beers of this style. Love the label and lack of words on it, as this beer nearly defied description too. A welcome change from what put Tired Hands on the proverbial map!

Thanks to TheIPAHunter for this one. A nice hazy golden color with a big, frothy white head. Great foam retention. Pineapple and tangerine on the nose with some faint earthy notes. I agree with the grassy description on the taste, well balanced with citrus and crisp bitterness. Easy to drink with a strong bready backbone.

Cloudy very pale yellow with a thin bright white head. Decent lacing.

Mild aroma. Very light tropical, soap and grass notes.

Grassy hops up front in the taste. Soft mango and pineapple follow. Definite wheat. Light bitterness couples with a hint of mineral water on the backend.

Great soft, slick feel with strong carbonation. Very refreshing overall.

Pours a semi clear lighr orange, with thick, fine foam.

Smell is citrusy and fruity, with notes of pineapple and passionfruit.

Taste is fruity and slightly tart. Plenty of citrus and passionfruit, with some sweetness and a nice, medium hop bite.

Mouthfeel is soft and pillowy, well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific IPA, as expected.

Poured from a fresh growler into a Tired Hands teku.

Absolutely beautiful in the glass. Honey yellow with a fluffy white head.

Pineapple and bell pepper on the nose.

Pineapple, orange rind, pine, and green pepper on the palate. Probably the best wheat IPA I've had. Medium bitterness but a smooth finish.

The mouthfeel is medium. Creamy yet refreshing.

Overall, 9+/10. This one actually converted a non-IPA drinking buddy of mine.

Hazy pale yellow. White head. Lace.

Not as fruity as the other tired hands. A bit more dank and weedy, but some papaya shows. Some stickiness and resin.

Medium bodied. Sticky. Light bitterness.

Solid brew.

16 oz can from Fermentaria three days ago poured into a pub glass.

A: Peach/straw color, very hazy, semi-opaque. One finger head that quickly dissipated. Bit of lacing.

S: Forest floor, pine needles, candied fruit, tropical fruits

T: Like most Tired Hands IPAs, the first thing that hits you is an exquisitely complex and inviting hop profile. I can't do it justice. Very harmonious. An enjoyable, feisty/juicy bite that seems to come from both resiny hops and crackery malts. Also orange/grapefruit juice with seltzer.

M: Yeah...TH is good at this too. I suspect the "turgid" aspect of their beers, however sacrilege, only helps here. Feel like I'm getting my fiber for the day. :) This dances on your tongue.

O: Delicious IPA. So lucky to have these folks in our backyard.

Very tasty IPA, that seemed to have a fairly resinous dry hopping component that makes this beer shine. Easy drinking, fabulous American hop nose with notes of stone fruit. Drink on sight.

Pours a cloudy (chunky even) lemony straw color with less than a finger of head. The nose is quite hop forward. The flavor profile is mild and subtle but appropriately bitter. The mouthfeel is lightly grainy.

Poured out as a hazy golden color with a creamy white head on top. The smell of the beer has a fruity dank aroma to it. The taste is a bit fruity but finished with a some definite resin bitterness. The feel of the beer is smooth. Overall this is a pretty good brew.

I really enjoyed this beer. I'm bias to fluffy, aromatic New England IPA's and Tired Hands delivers on this. The beer has a great hop flavor without overwhelming you with bitterness or prickly carbonation. Tired Hands is easily on the level of Tree House or Cellarmaker.

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

S- Faint tropical fruits/mangos, some citrus, pine, wheat, very faint bubble gum.

T- Citrus, faint tropical fruits, bitter piney/slightly dank finish, balanced with some wheat.

M- Smooth, medium body, creamy.

O- Another great IPA from Tired Hands, not as good as Alien Chruch, but still worth picking up.

From 11/09/13 notes. On tap at tbe brewery, followed by a growler of it later on that night. Really liked this one.

a - Pours a somewhat clear golden-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, lemon zest, floral hops, grapefruit juice, and fruity malts. Really nice nose, lots of fruit and fresh hops to it.

t - Tastes of mangos, floral hops, tropical fruits, fruit malts, and light citrus. More mango and tropical fruit than the nose, think I like it a little bit better.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Extremely smooth and creamy, and very drinkable. Amazing mouthfeel and drinkability.

o - Overall a really good IPA; reminds me a little bit of their Mago Tago, though not quite there in terms of the amount of tropical fruits. Very drinkable, hoping this becomes a staple there.

I cannot, in good and honest faith, rate this awful company highly, anymore. They need to give up the PA/IPA/IIPA schtick and stick to making world class Sours.

L: Straw/golden colored; cloudy, unsettled, and hazy; off-white/cream colored head with fair consistency that keeps a thin lacing.

S: Lemon dish soap; StarSan; cookie.

T: Palmolive citrus with a healthy spike of Lysol. I'm not kidding.

F: Thick; drinks like a late-end sick/ropey Pedio beer that hasn't conditioned long enough, but is almost finished; borderline snotty.

OVERALL: This needs to end. Make clean beers or go home.

Straight pour from a 1L flip-top growler to a wineglass; filled about 24hrs ago at the brewery. Tag says drink within 48 hours—challenge met, Tired Hands. Challenge met.

Appearance (4.25): Two fingers of pale white foam comes off of the pour and dies down reeelatively quickly (not too fast, though) and leaves what is at first a nearly solid sheet of lacing on the side of the glass—just a light coating of foam all over—and later a great combination of spackling, legs, and collars. The body is a cloudy, light orange-tan color that’s translucent on the edges. This is a really great-looking IPA.

Smell (4.5): Peach, passionfruit, pineapple, and other kinda-mellow, kinda-citric, super-juicy fruit tones really dominate here. Some resin, and some nice, bready malt tones (pale, fresh-baked white bread mixed with some lemon icing) underneath. This is an outstanding-smelling beer, well-crafted and pungent.

Taste (4.25): The hops are still juicy and fruity here, but more lightly so, shifting more towards a lemonade-like bitterness with some citrus zest, a little pineapple juice, a solid grassiness (which is somehow not very bitter but still grassy and floral), and lots of floral character. There’s a real sturdy pine resin aspect to it, too, especially in the (quite long) finish. The malt body is dry and bready, like common crackers or dry biscuits. Neutral yeast, no alcohol, a subtly floral/fruity underbelly, and tons of grassy, citrus-zesty, slightly resinous hop character. Super drinkable.

Mouthfeel (4.25): The carbonation is smooth and the body oily, coating everything evenly before a surprisingly sturdy tingle covers the tongue . . . it drinks light for its size, thanks to the understated malt body and solidly bitter hops. The finish is surprisingly a little juicy, and really nice.

Overall (4.25): This is one of those IPAs that’s somewhere between well-done to outstanding in every regard—but in a way that it’s almost unassuming at first. Like, “oh it’s pretty solid IPA,” except for when you dig into it you realize it has an excellent feel, the flavor is balanced with a surprisingly complex hop character, the nose is almost out of this world, and even the appearance grows on you. Tired Hands does, apparently, know their shit when it comes to hoppy, pale beers—y’know, in case you hadn’t heard. Another great one from TH.

Had this on 2013-11-12 at the brew pub.

A - Pretty hazy golden-orange with a 1-finger white head that fades pretty quickly, leaving very good lacing.

S - Juicy, fresh and sweet pineapple, mild-moderately dank, light pine, light spice. Very inviting and fairly strong.

T - Orange and pineapple flesh, very light malt, pine, hop oils, lightly grassy and herbal, nice level of initial bitterness. Aftertaste is increasingly bitter as most of the sweetness dries. There's a long-tasting pine and lightly sour citrus complimenting the remaining hop flavor/bitterness. Well done.

M - Initially, the feel is soft and succulent. Light-medium body and medium carbonation but as it dries you realize it is fairly resinous and nicely prickly.

O - A delicious rendition of the IPA. Very satisfying.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a medium white head...nice light lacing the whole way down. Aroma has great citrus and stonefruits...just a mild pine accent. Flavor has some tangy citrus, mild yeasty note, citrus rind...excellent peach and mango! Mouthfeel is medium and and lively with a nice dry peach/rind/citrus finish. Very refreshing.
