Tired Hands Fuzzy Green

Posted: July 10, 2015 in American IPA, Reviews, Tired Hands Brewing Company

After the culinary disaster at Manayunk, the other half and I headed to Tired Hands in Ardmore. I had never been and only had one or two beers from them. We initially went to their cafe, which was mostly snacks. We left and went to the Fermentaria, which was awesome. The dining room was above their brewery, as you can see below.



Service was friendly, informed and quick. The tuna crudo was ridiculously good and the beers were solid. This was the first one that I had. I really like anything with cucumber, so I knew this one was going to be right up my alley.


ABV: 6.4%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Cuked IPA. 6.4% Brewed with wheat, spelt, and locally sourced cucumbers. Hopped intensely with Equinox, Cascade, and Simcoe. Extremely melony and refreshing! Notes of honeydew, green pepper, fresh berries, Meyer lemons, and the beach.”

Random: The chairs were comfortable too.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head on top of a really cloudy, yellow body. There was some lacing left on the glass and there was no carbonation visible. The nose was filled with fresh cucumber, green peppers and bright lemons. The taste was even brighter and started with cucumber and melon. I specifically picked up honeydew. Then, lemons and peppers came through. This was a perfect combination between a vegetal and citrus beer. It had a lighter body with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy with cucumber and melon. This beer was awesome. My only regret is that I didn’t get a growler of it.
