4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 tap at brewpub. Hazy gold, thick frothy white head that laces everywhere. Super bright nose, ultra resinous with heavy orange, light sweetness with a few off paper hints. Flavor shows ultra bite, orange candies and earth slowly disappear across mid as beer dies in a dry, doughy end, absolutely no sugar anywhere, though salty orange returns in finish. Breezy and airy, it brings wonder and then disappears, teasing in that delicious, "I want more" way.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Tired Hands. Chill hazed light gold pour. Thick, sheety lace. Dense pillowy head retention. Mega dank tropical melon hop nose. Big cantaloupe and mango. Similar to Pliny the Younger. Taste is very dry and fully grassy bitter. No sugar or syrup or astringency. Very dry finish with full grassy bitterness. Delicate. Small malt richness and oatmeal as it warms. Very delicious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Draft at tired hands with pat, Von and Allen. Pours a beautiful hazy lemon orange body with thick one finger creamy head and spotty white lacing. Aroma is fresh citric hops, light funk, lemon, and tangerines. Mouthfeel is soft and delicate with notes of fresh citrus, light grapefruit, tangerines, clementines, and a perfect bitterness that makes this pale ale insanely refreshing and drinkable. +0.2 from original tasting. One of the strongest offerings from TH.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Tired Hands. Pours clear Pilsner light golden with a two-finger white head which recedes to leave a fuzzy ring around the edge and atop the surface. Aroma of a box of brand new Fruit Loops, dry, aromatic grass, moist wood, lemon, orange, and musty earth. Taste is soft lemon meringue, lime, dry, wonderfully bitter hop resin, and some mild, fresh orange at the back. Mild to light bodied with a smooth, creamy, crisp palate. This APA is smooth as hell and incredibly restrained, elegant and delicious. A fantastic ale in every way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 On tap at tired hands. Pours a slightly clearish golden color with impressive lacing and small head. Aromas and taste of strong citrus, pine, melons, grapefruit juice, earthy and herbal grains. Fresh as can be, drinks like water. I have had this a few times since the first couple and it seems to be inconsistent. It even tasted way better upstairs then it did downstairs a couple weeks ago. Bizzare.
