Beer: Cosmic Slop, Double IPA, 8.3% ABV
Brewery: Tired Hands, Pennsylvania
Age: 3 days old
Verdict: 98 / World Class
I was planning on sharing this growler with the guys down at my beer store, but that wouldn’t be until Tuesday and this just looked too appetizing sitting in my fridge.
I have been a fan of Tired Hands for a while now. I have 3 of their extremely limited bottle releases, but this is my first foray into their tap offerings. I know it’s just beer, but I am so f’ing excited to drink this shyte.
This is their celebratory Double IPA they brewed for their 200th batch of beer. It is brewed with spalt as the main grain and the addition of grapefruit, blood orange, lemon and lime juice. Now that’s JUICY!
Honestly, the greatest nose on an IPA…ever. I know it has the help of fruit to make it really citrusy, but it really is amazing. Flavor is fantastic as well, but a little disappointed at the low carbonation. For a 9% beer there is no alcohol. If only it wasn’t under-carbonated; it would have easily gotten a 100 in my books.
Seriously, these guys are for real and just validated my pondering of taking a road trip to the brewery after my last final on the 17th as a congrats to me.
