Pours unclear amber with a light tan head. The aroma brings sweet, smooth, light floral hops. The flavor brings malty and somewhat bitter notes on a refreshing body. It has light grapefruit up front and settling easy, a little lighter on the tongue than wanted but good overall.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler fill from a friend. Hazy amberish brown pour, not much lacing or head at all. Aromas are light for a brown, hoppy, very very light chocolate. Taste is very bitter and thin bodied. Its just way too hop forward and lacking an overall brown ale character. Dry and bitter finish. This growler was one day old so it wasnt conditioning. Not a fan of this one from TH.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Tired Hands. Served in stemware. Pours a moderate brown color with a nice head and pretty god retention. The nose brings some earthy and citrus hop components alongside a bit of bread and just a touch of toast. Flavor is hop-forward with moderate bitterness and a dry finish. Didn’t get much corn taste, though that seems to have come through more in the mouthfeel. Nice and drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Tired Hands. Low haze tea amber to deep orange pour. Spottier lace. Nose is sweet tea and sharper tannin, lemon. Taste is very bitter and nutty. Almost an IPA with a nutty, mega hop profile. In fact, most IPAs in the
US taste like this brown ale. Not bad. Near astringent. Roasty, nutty nose. I can’t really pick out the heavy corn profile.
