Appearance is amber with a non-sticky white head. Aroma is buttered popcorn with a slight backing of herbs.
Flavor comes is ultra perfumey, with a butter aftertaste. Tastes almost like German Tetts (or maybe fuggles?). Pretty bizarre.
Mouthfeel is good and drinkability is alright. This beer is not the immediate lovefest you might expect after tasting the Sculpin, a beer where they used more accessible flavor and aroma hops. This beer is not my thing but definitely sets itself apart from other DIPAs. By the way, every time I burp I taste buttered popcorn.

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.
Serving type: on-tap
