Unusual for it to have gone darker, the joys of hide glue is it drys perfectly clear, the downside of hide glue is you have a working period of about 30-45 seconds before it starts to congeal and cant be used.

In my (limited) experience hide glue dries to the same colour as the beads/flakes were before water is added, that is transparent brown/orange, so not clear by any means. I do agree it makes for a less obvious join in guitar tops though.
