3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Medium orange-amber body, creamy white head, solid lacing. Nose is mellower than expected given Tired Hands’ ability to captivate with aromatic expression. Hop profile consists of grapefruit, resin, grass. Decently assertive malt bill. Flavor is an improvement with a bit more depth and intensity. Pleasant, medium bodied, moderately bitter, soft finish.

Nice cloudy orange white creamy head. Taste is nice lemon, orange, sweet grapefruit, juicy hops. Mellow bitterness, well hidden alcohol. Aroma is citrusy, sweet caramel, juicy. All in all a good DIPA but had higher hopes!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a medium creamy white head...excellent lacing and retention. Aroma has flowery grassiness with some citrus rind and spicy grapefruit notes. Flavor has an up front sweet citrus that is quickly overtaken with piney/skunky bitterness...earthy and herbal...very assertive bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a piney/resinous/earthy dry, bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a cloudy, light orange/gold with a two-finger head. Nose was citrus (orange, lemon), grassy, resin. Taste followed with emphasis on orange notes. Palate was sticky and dry, with that dryness being the most important element in the aftertaste. Overall, this was a pretty nice treat, although it would be a bit harsh for anyone unaccustomed to drier DIPA’s.
