Tired Hands Consciousness Streams

Posted: June 24, 2015 in American IPA, Reviews, Tired Hands Brewing Company

The other half had one of her law school friends over this weekend to go to a concert. The next day, we ended up at Memphis Taproom for lunch. As usual, they had a bunch of beers that I had never tried before, including this one, which they brewed with Tired Hands. Let’s see how it was.


ABV: 7.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to tenemu.com, “Tired Hands Brewing has consciousness on the mind. The newest draft-only release from the Ardmore, Pa.-based brewery is Consciousness Streams, a 7.5 percent ABV ‘Extra IPA brewed with a whole lot of wheat’ and ‘hopped intensely’ with centennial, liberty, lemon drop and Columbus hops. According to a post on the brewery’s Instagram page, the new beer was brewed in collaboration with three Philadelphia, Pa. bars: Memphis Taproom, Local44 and Strangelove’s.”

Random: The pork sandwich was really good this time. I haven’t had it in awhile.

This beer poured with a two finger, white head that dissipated slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy orange color with no carbonation. The nose was really floral and hoppy. It had lemon, Mandarin oranges and grapefruit. It had some light malt as well. The taste was really hoppy and floral. There was generous amounts of tropical fruit, specifically mango and pineapple. The body was very thick with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy and filled with grapefruit and flowers. I really enjoyed this beer and I would have it again. If you see it around, definitely grab a glass of it.
