Bottle shared at tasting, sent up from Homer, thanks! Pours a cloudy yellowish gold with a thin head, the aroma was mainly of barnyard with some of the hops coming through too, kind of different, flavor is musty at first then finishes with a hop kick, pretty slick mouthfeel with a bubbly finish, nice.
