Growler @ the Mini-Tasting, Naples. Cheers to Crosamich for scoring this. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. Light floral hop nose. A bit o’ pee. Some lemon rind and general citrus. Hints of sweet canned pears. The taste is more of the same. Light pear and white grape. Moderate citrus hop bite. Super light palate. Only a touch of bready malt. Soft carbonation. Overall, pretty refreshing.

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.

On tap at Tired Hands. Beautiful aroma on this one. Apricot, grapefruit - juicy and delicious. Sweet and succulent. Cloudy pale golden with foamy lacing white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with big juicy hops. Fruity and spicy with clean finish. Right level of sweetness, bitterness, and carbonation. This is a phenomenal APA. Delicious.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, garlicky hops, tropical fruits, grass, caramel malt. Flavor of light garlicky hops, grassy hops, earthy fruits, a touch of light citrus fruits. Very hoppy, very flavorful, the best pale ale I’ve ever had...(really it’s an IPA)

32oz growler in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops, some light pale malts, and good doughy yeast. Flavor the same with lots of fruits and citrus. Average texture. A good pale ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Not surprised to see that this gets a 100% for style at the time of rating and before having looked at any Tired Hands ratings, it was easily my favorite of the seven small beers I tried. Aroma beams forth with good tropical hop resins, steady and sturdy. Flavors start with the ethereal light and fresh green hop qualities and then merge beautifully into a n almost nutty malt base. One of the more broadly complex Pale Ales I’ve had in awhile and I give it a lot of credit for being balanced, hop flavor delicious, and with malt nuance. It’s hard to pull that off. Yum.
