From a cask at TH. The pretty copper color catches the July sunshine. An interesting brew for sure. Soft hoppy bitterness, lemon peel, fresh bread, a little brine, a touch of coriander.

Reddish raspberry pour with a pinkish white head and light lacing ... aroma of resiny citrusy hops, lemons and some flowery hibiscus does come through ... taste is of resinous hops, citrusy lemony/mosaic hops, a slight floral fruity flavor with almost a berry to it .. finish is dry and bitter ..... drank this for the remainder of my stay at the brew pub .... good stuff

might have been the best! pink like a picture, grapefruit like a florida! so many acid fruits made the beer show me a color like the rosy cheeks of a happy normal small child person. I like the taste of it!

Growler from Chris. Thanks! Clear reddish-orange-pink pour with a white head. Huge grapefruit and lemon aromas. Nice floral note of hibiscus, some pine, pineapple, and bread. Tons of citrus flavor. Very intense lemon peel, tons of grapefruit, and some pine bitterness. Light malt sweetness, somewhat subtle hibiscus notes, and a hint of pineapple.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L flip-top growler thanks to womencantsail. Pours a low haze, brighter pinkish amber with good white/pink foam. Nose is bright and hoppy, fresh meyer lemon, and something quite excellent like juicy red grapefruit. Taste is nutty, bitter, a ton of intense red grapefruit and rind. Palate is aggressively bitter but doesn’t come across as harsh. Fresh on tap, this sounds like Tired Hands picked my brain for another dream beer.

Growler shared with Ken and Linh, thanks Ken! Pours a bright, pink grapefruit juice body with no head, light white bubbles. Aroma is fresh floral notes, grapefruit, strawberries and some vague tangy mango flavor. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of fruit, light tart lemon, hibiscus/floral character, light soap and nice subtle funky hop. Great.

Growler; a few days old from the source. Beautiful cranberry brown with a slight head. Nose is Hawaiian Punch, rose hips, grass and lemon. Medium body; crisp, dry and resiny. Taste is lemon, toffee, hibiscus and grass. Another perfect summer IPA from Tired Hands. Needed a bit more from the special ingredients to compete with the hops.
