Growler at a tasting, golden pour with light head, not much lacing. Notes of juicy hops, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and fresh orange zest. Another hoppy winner from Tired Hands if you ask me. AirForceHops (8026) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Glad to have Mr. Jackson sharing his latest trade. Nice color. Big citrus nose, orange, grapefruit and topical fruit. Flavor is citrus hop dominate. Bright citrus relating directly to the nose. Grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest. Very juicy with low bitterness. The bitterness is there and then gone right after the sip. Body is medium with a nice mouthfeel. My kind of DIPA! dmac (6574) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft. Poured a milky opaque yellow body with an average fizzy white head. Aroma 8s nice, loads of citrus, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, lots of rind. Body has some heat on the end, medium to fuller bodied that is dry and finishes almost harshly bitter. Flavor of dry crusts, lots of citrus rind, alcohol, yellow grapefruit, toast. Solid beer but I was expecting more. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Growler poured into a tulip. Pours hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and fruity hops, citrus from the addition, pale malts and dough. Flavor the same with a great hoppiness. Average to smooth texture. A good beer. AdamChandler (5206) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2013

A - Golden orange, 2 finger head, nice lacing.
S - Smells like chinook, simcoe and citra. healthy orange zest peels and resin for miles on the nose. Hint of mineral notes.
T - Very juicy, almost orange juice taste. Jean, did you add fruit juice to this? Really special in how bitter and drinkable this is. Lovely hop notes,
M - Medium body, sparkling champagne and lingers for days and days
O - Really fantastic!!! This is remarkable. on par with HFS.
Hazy straw yellow body, medium white head, spotty lacing. Juicy cara cara oranges, mango, and a little pine and grass. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, pleasant bitterness. Not quite Vampire but quite nice nonetheless. reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a hazy honey color with a creamy medium white head...nice lacing all the way down. Aroma has lots of orange and citrus rind...some piney notes. Flavor has loads of orange...nice rindy bitterness...hints of mango, passion fruit, and pine. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a rindy/piney dry and bitter finish.

Growler from Tired Hands consumed that night. Misty orange brown with a coating white head. Nose is orange juice and peel, musk and mint. Chewy with a dull buzz; hop porridge. Taste is orange zest, toffee and grass. Getting sweeter with the juice emerging. Airy, almost minty finish. Not quite the crisp citrus i expected. Big hop presence but doesn’t overwhelm the Cara Cara. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white foam. Lots of orange juiciness on the nose backed by a hint of honeyed malt and zesty grassiness. The palate follows with juicy hop notes enhanced by the citrus addition. Im really a sucker for this style :) The oats lend a touch of earthiness but add a lot more in the mouthfeel. Round rich full bodied yet refreshing still. Great Beer ! Thanks Nate merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2013
