First had: on tap at TH

Murky medium brown pour with a small cap of off-white head. Aroma of toasted grains and resiny hops. More of the same in the taste, piney hops, grains, toasted bread, dank, with notes of grass and wet cardboard. Decent brew, but didn't come off too memorable with the likes of SuchUnique following it. Light-medium body, dry, decently drinkable.

thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this with me, enjoyed chilled from a goblet.

a dark toasty look, very murky like wek coffee -light amber at the base with light white cream which holds well with stringy lace. The smell is decent with some citrus and light pine with a mild yeast ester which is on the earthy side slight vegetal tinge but mostly orange rind comes through.
The feel is decent but has a lot of unfiltered yeast in the texture which makes a little astringent and slightly dry with a moderate carbonation and light bitterness/body in general.

The taste is slightly earthy in part from the yeast but there is a dank vegetal raw hop flavor too with a redeeming citrus rind accent that brightens the taste slightly the malt is toasty which melds with the mild nutty yeast and has a very low sweetness in the flavor. This is a small beer so I can't say the drinkability is poor, but in general I have had better beers with more hop flavor from Tired Hands

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Medium dark, lager-like, very good head and strong laces
S- Hoppy citrus & pine, grassy, grain
T- quite refreshing and well-balanced grapefruit, pine, dry not overly bitter, crisp
M- great body, easy drinking, abv 4.5%, smooth balance of hops & malt
O- TH claims it is "crushable" - I'd have to agree. Hope it'll be in rotation.

Served in an 8 oz glass
