Poured from a bottle dated 4/29/18 into the pint glass
A - Copper base color, active carbonation feeds an off white froth of tight knit spheres.
S - Strong toasted malts, then lots of oak driven vanilla, hint of toffee, light brown sugar round this out.
T -English malts (Marris Otter?) Caramel, some earthy hops, and again the vanilla. Narrow band here
M - Soft on the palate, runs down the sweet lane with no perceivable bitterness, the finish is earthen and enjoyable.
O - I purchased this in the discount rack, at nearly 4 months old, it has migrated to the sweet side, Lots of oak vanillin and very soft on the palate.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. capped bomber into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is brown sugar, tea, dried leaves and bark with a touch of syrupy sweetness. Pretty aromatic. Nice harmony of flavors here. Beer opens caramel, brown sugar, black tea and dry tea leaves. Great balance with a robust malt body at the start. There's a touch of hop bite towards the back but again, this flavor profile is more black tea than anything else with some hazelnut and brown sugar flavors mixed in. More English Mild and Brown Ale than IPA... but its tasty. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate and aggressive, sparkling going down. Given the taste profile, I kind of want something a little less carbonated and more round at the edges. Not bad, but not great.

A pretty unique brew and one I can certainly appreciate. The body here is a little coarse but otherwise, it's enjoyable.

22oz bottle undated purchased at Moonshine in Harwich. Dark amber color and coffee,oak and malt on the nose. Creamy coffee, toasted malt and sweet caramel for tastes. A little burnt coffee on the aftertaste. Not our favorite type of beer.

It tastes like fat tire. I wasn’t completely disappointed, but it’s grossly overpriced.

L — Slightly hazed brown body with a scant half-finger of off-white head produced with aerated pour. Minimal retention and zero lacing
S — Roasted hazelnut, walnut, cold brew coffee, cacao powder, well-malted barley
T — Definitely tastes primarily like a traditional British IPA, but with a noticeable oak character and slightly amped up woodsy/herbaceous hopping. Mostly just getting a nice roasted nuttiness with a caramel/toffee sweetness. Reminds me a lot of Switchback or even Harpoon to a certain extent
F — Pleasantly full-bodied for the style. Medium mouthfeel, medium carb.
O — These $15 bombers from TG are hard to rate fairly because they’re so unfairly priced. This should be a $5 beer

Pours a fairly clear light brown with an orange tint. The thin off white head disappears almost immediately with no lacing. The aroma is lightly roasted malts, oak and a touch of toffee. Flavor follows the nose and the feel is nice and crisp, surprisingly well carbonated given the appearance. Overall a decent beer that isn't worth the price point.

Appearance, smell, taste, and Feel are somewhat lacking. Overall, this is a weak flavor combination of the barrel aging and hops.
