Tired Hands HopHands

Posted: February 8, 2017 in American Pale Ale, Reviews, Tired Hands Brewing Company

Despite the fact that I’ve been to Tired Hands multiple times, I’ve never had the one beer that they always have on tap. There’s always something else that I end up trying. This time, I made sure that I gave this beer a try and I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor.

ABV: 4.8%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our American Pale Ale. 5.5% Brewed with oats. Hopped intensely with Simcoe, Centennial, and Amarillo. Hazy, juicy, and imminently crushable. Our precious Pale Ale. Notes of tangelo, kiwi, dank, pine sap, nectarine, honeysuckle, and grapefruit.”

Random: I’ve never been to one of their can releases either.

This beer poured with a one and half finger white head that was exceptionally thick. It dissipated at a snail’s pace and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a bright yellow color with no carbonation visible due to how turbid the beer was. The nose was bright. It had bright, grassy hops with pine sap and grapefruit. There wasn’t much in terms of flowers on the nose. The taste was equally bright, but had a significant honeysuckle note. It also had pine sap and pomelo. It was quite citrusy and made this a really easy drinker. The body was medium thickness with high carbonation. It had a long and hoppy finish with pine sap. This beer was just excellent. It had great depth of flavor and went down easily. I will definitely be having this one again.
