3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A bit off-white head soon diminishing into a finger-thick size. Lots of clementine peel on the nose, citrusy, rather pleasant, rather one dimensional. A bit heavy on carbonation, full-bodied. Mostly clementine in the flavor too, Quite bitter, but not in an unpleasant way. Overall, an interesting one, but not the kind of beer I’ll return to. It’s too one dimensional for that. 120817

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Golden, cloudy with 1/4 inch head that quickly dissipated.
Smell: Citrus, strong grapefruit.
Taste: Slight hops, followed by light bitterness, little sweetness and ends with the taste of mate. The mate does not linger. All the tastes quickly move from one to the next without any standing out or being overpowering.
Very drinkable. However, I would quickly get bored with it. The inclusion of mate is the draw for this beer since it drinks as a very ordinary IPA or Pale Ale (both are listed on the bottle). The brewery’s website states that 12 oz. of this beer is equal to 1/2 cup of coffee in caffeine. I would have to drink quite a few though to get enough caffeine for a night out... coffee wins there. But it is still an interesting drink and worth trying.
