On draft at MateVeza in SF. It pours orange with a white head. The aroma is crystal malt heavy with some tropical notes of peach and mango along with some herbaceous tea leaves in balance. The flavor is the same. More caramel heavy than I like, but the yerba mate character is interesting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared september 15th 2012. Cloudy dark orange body, creamy white lasting head. Aroma is herbal with lemon, mango, spices? Malty taste with english tea, grass and yeast. Not sure why it’s labeled as an IPA, though I didn’t know what Yerba mate was either, looked it up after drinking the beer, and guess that explains the tea-like taste. Decent bitterness, and a dry aftertaste.
