3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to yourefragile for the growler. Served in Tired Hands stemware. Pours a moderate caramel color, but is thankfully not very malty. Nose has strong pine, resin, and citrus peel in the nose. Flavor is more bitterness. Good citrus. Quite heavy there. Super dry. Very nice DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
murky amber-brown, white island with thick ring and ample lacing. Super earthy nose, oily pine, mint, and grapefruit. Flavor of earth and grapefruit up front, light cheese and citrus across mid-palate, pine strong through the end. Bit puffy profile, chalky. Still quite dry, "aggressive" hops just aren’t my thing anymore.

Tap at Tired Hands. Pours a murky, deep amber tea. Thick, off white dense, creamy foam. Nose brings heavier oatmeal, maple, and strawberry juice. Taste is very dense and nutty. Very aggressive bitterness. Malty and rich body tries to support an IBU smackdown. Mango and strawberry style hoppiness. Denser, thicker palate. Sort of the opposite direction I would expect Tired Hands to take for IPA. HopHands was significantly better.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Tired Hands with Vinny. Pours deep copper orange with a creamy, tightly-bubbled khaki head. Aroma of bubble gum, orange zest, grapefruit, and some grassy, floral, and honey notes. Taste is creamy, bitter hop resin with some light pine and orange zest. Palate is smooth, supple, and very supportive of the bitter hop profile. Finish is effervescent, light, and earthy. Love this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at TH, pours a very murky brown copper, small white head with good soapy lacing. Aromas and taste of heavy pine, grapefruit, bitter centennial and cascade hops, roasty grains, and wood. Very bitter finish, warming for 7 percent. Wish the simcoe and amarillos had more of a presence. Drinkable but not for me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mmm. Hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is full of hop goodness. Citrus, floral, bright fruits. Lightly sweet toasted malt, a bit of zest, and a full serving of pine. Medium to full body. Flavor was much like the aroma with a more noticeable grapefruit tone. Linegring citrus bitterness. Quite the good IPA.

Pours a hazy amber with a creamy tan head...great retention and lacing. Aroma is very piney with hints of farmhouse yeastiness. Flavor follows suit...great pineyness without turning medicinal! Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry bitter piney finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 Hazy orange-amber body. Large off-white head and good lacing. Assertive grapefruit, resin and pine. Flavor is similar with the addition of some nice delicate floral notes to accentuate the grapefruit and resin. Medium bodied with assertive carbonation and a nice bracing bitter finish. I’ve been waiting for a beer like this from Tired Hands.

Hazy orange amber color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, orange, and toasty wheat. Taste of pine, orange, grapefruit, citrus fruits, and a bitter hoppy finish.
