Had on-tap at the brewery in Seattle. Apparently, this was brewed with an Experimental hop variety that either didn't have a name, or wouldn't be named by the brewery. That was enough to pique my interest.

Pours a really, very murky golden colour, with a surprisingly heavy basis. The haze is so thick it's insane: it has almost the transparency of clay. Head is yellow-white, perhaps with more flecks from the haze, but persisting with solid resilience and leaving bubbly sheets of lace. Looks impressive.

Unfortunately, it's a let-down from here on, especially for a beer supposedly with hops at its core. Aroma is sweaty, with just a touch of lemon and a hint of ass. Pretty weak all up, and pretty disappointing.

Similar characters on the palate. Light lemon characters on the front, with some honeydew melon coming through leaving a smooth but empty flavour. Mild, slightly woody bitterness rounds it out. Aftertaste is clean with a slight sparkle.

This beer is disappointing most of all because I don't feel like I understand the hop after drinking it. Moreover, it's not a particularly interesting beer overall. This leaves it firmly in the bland, forgettable category for me.
