COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Can there ever be enough permutations of the great India Pale Ale style? Of course not. In this beautifully nuanced, Japanese esthetic-influenced ale, we marry in the conditioning tank ample dosages of earthy-herbal dry hops (Hersbrucker, Styrian Golding, Santiam) with deft additions of whole leaf Shizuoka green tea. The result of this international botanical marriage is, in a word, sublime.
Baird Beer, as you know, is unfiltered and the addition of whole leaf green tea to Wabi-Sabi IPA has contributed a very strong particle sediment. Do not fear or fret, this is all-natural good stuff and it tastes great! You will not find this in a can or mug of your favorite industrial brew.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. This is a blurry looking golden colored one with a small sidesticking white bubbly head. It smells kinda floral. I get green grass blended with grapes. I guess you can call it kinda mild but nice. Tastes OK. Really easy to drink. Mild apple fruity in a way. It’s above average on the bubbles and has a light oily feeling in the mouth. Soft nectar flavors, but I’m missing the tea. 03.05.2014
