1 Liter flip-top growler filled Sunday at TH thanks to GT2. I actually opened and drank some of this last night, but I truly believe it tastes better today. Maybe the beer needed some time to settle. Anyway--pours a pale yellowish orange straw with a thin film of mildly sticky white lace. Nose is fresh citrus, lots of lemon and lime, clementines are evident. The Nelson Sauvin hops really stand out but so does the Clementine juice and zest. Flavor is more orange juice, lemon, lime, light toffee. Finishes zesty, bitter and juicy, with a soft creaminess that works surprisingly well.

Growler poured a thin hazy light peach color. Smell of citrus rhind and hops. Taste of orange, slightly bitter like citrus pith very nice hoppiness. I can only imagine what this tastes like fresh out the tap

On tap at Tired Hands yesterday afternoon. Pours a nice moderate orange color with a good white head. The nose bursts with loads of fresh clementine and citrus zest. Tropical fruits carry through underneath. The flavor is just as good with a great hop bite alongside the fresh citrus character. Fairly-light body with a perfect balancing bitterness. I would have liked to have drained a keg of this by myself.

Tap at Tired Hands for the HandFarm release. Pours a full haze glowing pineapple juice. Big sheety white lace. Nose is clementine, tangerine, sweet cream butter, gamey/super fresh key lime pie. Taste is ultra soft, low bitterness, sweet cream, white cake, yum! Finish is insane: whipped cream, pineapple, key lime, bitter orange rind. Tastes like liquid key lime pie. Easy 4.2 level APA but I’m digging this super soft, fresh key lime pie flavor. Quenching, sessionable.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2013 Hazy golden yellow body, large white head, good lacing
Nose is fresh citrus, grapefruit, grass, resin and tropical fruits
Flavor is similarly bright and invigorating. Delicious. Light bodied, assertive carbonation, moderate bitterness, awesome finish. I think this is the best one yet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has lots of fresh orange notes, hints of grapefruit and rind. Flavor has lots of citrus zest/rind with touchs of spicy and herbal hop notes...nice rindy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky smooth with a dry bitter finish of rind/faint herbs.

Pours a light but cloudy lemon juice or grapefruit juice color. Head is a finger that dissipates quickly. The nose is overwhelmingly citrus and especially the clementines. Taste is almost sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Again, the clementines dominate, no surprise since the brewer says he used 60 pounds of clementines! This is VERY refreshing and without being cloying or terribly sticky. This brewer and this place are first rate and this beer will convince you if you aren’t already
