Backlog...late 2011/early 2012...had to be spring of 2012 at station when i had fripp...pours hazy golden color with a medium white head...good lacing. Nice floral citrus notes, some pine, and earthy/spicy notes. Flavor has good citrus, light pine, and a spicy/earthy rye kick...solid malt backing...almost biscuit or bread. Mouthfeel is light/medium with an earthy/bitter dry finish. yourefragile (153) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2012
On tap at the Station Taproom 2nd Anniv. party. Served in a pint glass. Sampled next to HF Edward.
Pours a cloudy dark golden, light amber color, a few shades lighter than Edward with a thick, creamy off white head. Fades to a thin collar and a few rings of lace. Wonderful hoppy and spicy aroma; immediately reminds me of a Hill Farmstead or Lawsons (go Vermont!) IPA with a light bready and spicy rye finish. Flavor is similar to Edward, sufficient bready malt body with a wonderful citrus and pulpy hop bitterness before the rye asserts itself in the finish. Body is only part of the beer that trails Edward, as it is light to medium body, well carbonated and slightly thin in contrast. Otherwise, for being batch < 10 on Tired Hands production brew house, this beer is awesome and I look forward to drinking many more of these. Capa (3624) - DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Golden in color with a white, foamy head. Aroma was strong on the citrus, pine, earth hops. Medium bodied. Great hop notes throughout. Citrus and earthy hops with a nice zesty bite on the end from the rye and hops. This is a winner. lachrymalisis (448) - Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2012
clean, citrus/ earthy pine hop aromas. pleanty of bitterness on the palate, I attribute this to the beer’s dryness. big fluffy white head, hazy witbier/straw golden yellow. clear and transparent grain flavors underneath the hops. I want a touch more hop flavor, maybe more or different hops in the late stages of the boil/ whirlpool. Fantastic beer. Supreme drinkability. Powerman319 (49) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2012
Lots of dank and resiny hop flavor. Supremely aromatic with grass and citrus fruits. Clean drinking with a little bit of lingering bitterness that gets your mouth dry for another sip.
