Tired Hands Experimental Spaceship

Posted: February 11, 2017 in American IPA, Reviews, Tired Hands Brewing Company

This was the last beer that I had at Tired Hands. I wanted something on the lighter side to end the session and this was the best choice. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 4%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Jean and Julie began purchasing their brewing equipment in the Spring of 2010, and purchased the building (an old physician’s office) that now houses the THBC Brew Cafe at 16 Ardmore Avenue in Ardmore, Pennsylvania on July 1, 2011. Jean not only learned book-keeping and managerial accounting, he became a general contractor and personally managed the entire gutting and retrofitting of this 1925 building. Extensive renovations were required to build their ideal brewery/cafe/community meeting spot!”

Random: I’m watching a British documentary about some of the worst prisons in the world. I can’t believe how many don’t even have running water.

This beer poured with less than half a finger of white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was very hazy and yellow in color. Because of how cloudy it was, I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose had pilsner malt, peach flesh and a touch of sourness. The taste was a bit on the tart side and quickly went into peach flesh notes. It also had some lemon pith and pilsner malt. The body was quite thin with high carbonation. It had a quick, peachy finish. This was very drinkable, but it was a touch too thin for me. I would have this again if I wanted a fruity session IPA.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
