Tired Hands Pineal

What the brewers say

"Oat IPA. Brewed with oats and PA wildflower honey. Transcendentally hopped with Mosaic, Amarillo, and a bit of Simcoe for good measure. A perennial favorite that helps pry open that third eye."

What our panel thought

Aroma: "Beautiful soft, fruity hop aroma with a subtle spice backing note. Refreshing with hints of pineapple, mango, and some bubblegum."

Flavor: "Very pleasant from start to finish - light fruit with underlying hints of pine up front, a soft mid palette with a pleasant grainy/oat flavor, and a crisp and clean finish that is nicely bitter but not overly aggressive. Lingering notes of pine and light fruit."

Overall: "A really nice example of the style, well balanced throughout so you get a lot of hop complexity without any overwhelming character. The finish is more bitter than a lot of versions of hazy IPA, but that works well here and leaves you with a clean lingering piney note."
