I only drank this as part of a dare and when I had no money.

Awesome appearance. Three fingers of bone white dense head that lasted 20 minutes leaving dense lacing all the way down. Head is still there and depositing lace.
Smell is a bit funky and I think it is an herbal hop variety that is giving that funky earthy aroma.
Taste is similar to the nose. Dominated by the herbal grassy hop flavor and the malts are there but don't quite balance the hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation.
Finish is slightly dry and the hop bitterness is long lasting.
Weird date on the bottom of the bottle. It is a Julian date which is a Bud thing I thought. It says 255 14 which would be close to 100 days before the year end of 365.
I hope that is a born on date or I am tasting an aged version of this beer!
