4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
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

Wow. Thanks to Josh Young for the gem. And its a GEM! Pours a lightly hazy straw color with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is marvelous. The orange notes meld together with the spicy hops so well. I get orange, grapefruit, honey and a light herbal note. Flavor is so wonderful. Hoppy but not bitter. Juicy, orange zest, lemons, light pine hops, some grassiness...this beer is beautiful. Wow.

Tap at Monk’s. Clear pale yellow (not hazy at all), bright white head. Nose again spilling over with melon and fruit. Orange, so musky and dense. Flavor only light bitterness but smooth and utterly dry, herbal and rindy. Smooth light-medium body. What these guys are getting out of the hops is just incredible, they are truly special.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden orange with a rocky one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is fresh clementine juice, key limes, pine, tropical fruits, grassy hops, light bready malts, and some light dankness. Taste is freshly squeezed clementine juice, lemons, pine, tropical fruits, pine, bready malts, grassy hops, and some light cattyness. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, semi dry, long, lingering finish. Overall, a amazing world class APA that super tasty, drinkable, and my new favorite for the style.

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.
