Tired Hands Alien Church

Posted: January 18, 2016 in American IPA, Reviews, Tired Hands Brewing Company

This was the second beer I ordered at Tired Hands. Since they offer a 6 ounce pour, I can try more beers than if I ordered full pints. This one came highly recommended by the server and he said that it was without a doubt, the best beer that they had on tap that day. With a recommendation like that, how could I not order it?

ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: As of now, Tired Hands only distributes to Pennsylvania.

Random: Tired Hands has very unique beer names.

This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated slowly and left a touch of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, light yellow color with no carbonation visible because how cloudy this beer was. The nose was incredibly fragrant with big fruity notes up front. First, I picked up blueberry and green melon. Then, the expected notes of pine needles and sap came through. The taste was very pleasant. It was light, but incredibly fruity. Like the nose, I picked up blueberry and honeydew. Then, some grapefruit flesh came through before transitioned into pine notes. It had a thick body with high carbonation, yet was quite crisp. The berry notes lingered on the tongue for awhile, which just made me want another sip. This beer was the standout of the visit to Tired Hands. The berry note that it had was very unique and I can’t remember ever having it in an IPA. My only regret is that I didn’t get a growler of this to take home.

Untappd Rating: 4.5/5.0
