First had: on tap at TH

Crystal clear (a rare event for TH), golden-yellow pour, topped with a cap of white sea foam that lasted and laced the glass well. Aroma of intense Citra ammonia quickly shifts to fresh citrus, with tropical and herbal notes. Crisp, clean, fresh, in the nose and in the taste. All the hoppy greatness of the aroma was presented on the palate, citrus, pineapple, earthy and herbal notes, ammonia, no hop really fully taking dominance, all backed up by a mellow toasted wheat profile. Crisp, clean mouthfeel, medium body, highly drinkable and obviously growler-worthy.

They listed this as part of "continuing our quest for the perfect IPA…" A valiant attempt, but if anything, they came the closest to this goal with St. Oner. However, Kickphone iFlip definitely flew under the radar and is one of the best IPAs TH has made.

Diacetyl. I love TH. But didn't see this coming. Albeit, I'm super sensitive to it. But, damn.

2-26-16 - On tap at Monk's in Philly. Hazy straw color with slight white head. Nice and smooth feel with lemony hops taste. Another good one from Tired Hands.

KICKPHONE iFLIP: IPA. 5.5% Brewed with wheat. Hopped intensely with Citra, Simcoe, Centennial, and Amarillo. Continuing our quest for the perfect IPA….

-Notes of bright lemon, dank grass, kumquats, pineapple, and clean wheat.

Had this on draft at Tired Hands Brewery in Ardmore, PA. Wow!!! Easily my favorite of 4 beers I sampled. This really packed an amazing hoppy aroma and citrusy flavors for 5.5% beer. This had the look and taste of a double or imperial IPA.
