Tired Hands Powertrip Technology

Posted: January 16, 2016 in American IPA, Reviews, Tired Hands Brewing Company

Val and I went to Tired Hands Fermentaria for a late lunch/early dinner since we were at a craft fair on the outskirts of Philly. Since I enjoyed it so much last time, I was very excited. This was the first beer that I had while I was there.

ABV: 6.7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “New Zealand IPA. 6.7% Brewed with oats. Hopped intensely with Nelson Sauvin and Motueka. An American/New Zealand joint venture IPA. Notes of lemon/lime flesh, fresh grassy stuff, grape skins, earthy, and guava.”

Random: I’m always shocked that the place is not more crowded when we’ve been there.

This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body looked almost like orange juice. It was completely opaque and bright orange in color. As a result, I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose was very fragrant. I picked up lime pulp, lime zest and citrusy hops. There was also some tropical fruit, specifically guava and pineapple. The taste was equally bright with lemon zest and lime zest. Some juicy lime pulp came through as well. The tropical fruit note wasn’t as apparent in the taste as it was the nose. At the end of the sip, there was some grassiness that filled out the flavor profile. It had a medium body with high carbonation, which made this beer go down very easily. The finish was lengthy, with lots of citrus. I really enjoyed this beer. The brightness of the citrus was very nice and it was light enough to have more than one. If you’re at the brewery, this is worth searching out.
