COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A wonderful spirit of camaraderie, cooperation and mutual support exists in the world of craft brewing. We have harnessed this spirit fully in the crafting of this special collaborative brew dedicated to the resilient people of Japan who are bravely endeavoring to overcome the tragedy of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami. We tip our brewing hats to the quiet elegance and humble sophistication of Japanese culture through the judicious addition of Japanese whole leaf green tea to this big, bold, spicy and herbal IPA. Cheers, Japan!

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
Cloudy tan. There was a lot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is fruity, hoppy with light green tea and some vanilla - this comes together nicely on the nose. Expressive fruity character. Lots of tea, blends ok with the hops. The tannins add to the total bitterness. The malts are still chewy Stone, but they are understated. Definitely one of the better Stone brews.
