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.

Yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is sour malt, earthy hops, and citrus. Light sweet malt, perfumy hops, dry finish, medium bitter. A tad thin and watery but a nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at TND. Pours a hazy pale golden yellow with a medium bubbly white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of fresh American hops. Citruy with light pine and tropical fruit notes. Flavor of the same resiny American hop profile. Dry and bitter. Lots of tropical fruit in the flavor profile as well. This is awesome. So fresh, so hoppy and so dry!

On tap at the brewpub. Nice that they keep the two stand-bys on deck at all times, and this was a well realized and quite dry APA. Light gold pour, with moderate cloudiness and an impressive head. Nose was piney, citric at times, with hints of cracked pepper and pungent flowers. Lively mouthfeel, very sessionable and refreshing. Flavors are slightly brighter and more floral than the nose suggests, but there’s still plenty of dry and peppery flavors in the finish especially. Nuanced session brew, well done.

Soft straw blonde pour with a dense white head. Soft fruit in the nose with some light malty notes.
Very nice flavor, lots of citrus and fruit showing. Light toasted grain with some earthy bready notes. Dry citrus rind.
Very mellow bitterness and carbonation. Very nice and soft velvety mouthfeel from the oats.

This one poured a cloudy darker yellow with a white head.Aroma was light fruit, light grain, and grass. Flavor was tremendously balanced between fruit hops, light grain, no sweetness at all thought. Very drinkable for sure.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpud during the Farm Hands release. Poured a pale yellow body with a foamy white head, easily the least impressive part of this beer was the apearance. Aroma starts to step it up with notes of lemon, cirus rinds, bread, grassy hops and a slight touch of white pepper. The body was damn super, so delicate overall with a lighter mouthfeel and soft carbonation that made you want to drink this all day long. Flavor of grains, toast, ligth drier lemon rind and yeast. Great beer that I could drink all day.
