Aroma - standard piney angle, but very low keyed...floral without much character. Not horrible.

Appearance - crystal clear body, golden orange...nearly lifeless pour

Taste - very herbal, not sure what Yerba Mate tastes like, but there’s nothing out of the ordinary here. Light caramel, snappy hop bite, light apple juice too.

Palate - thin, seemed a bit undercarbonated...watery

Overall - Picked up a bomber of this and their Golden ale. $4 a pop, not really worth it.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2010
Pours opaque and amber with a frothy crown. Fresh citrus fruit and floral hop aroma, herbal notes, cereal malt. Taste is clean, spicy-bitter, tea and pampelmousse. Crisp mineral finish and medium viscosity with late warming alcohol. I think this herbal IPA is refreshing, uncomplicated and underrated.

Always wanted to try this, but never wanted to pick up a whole 6pk as Yerba Mate is supposed to work on getting the heart beating. Pours only a slight hand. Bit of foam on top of an orange sea. Clear orangy body with only a few bubbles. Hoppy aroma. Mouthfeel is odd. As I take a sip its like gas is being released inside my mouth. Not just the first time, but the second time too. Some rubbery flavors amongst the hoppyness. Eh. Basically confirmed my assumption I should only buy a single bottle.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Hazy sunrise orange with an suitable head, Sharply bitter hop nose with some citrus notes. The flavor is more even-tempered. Medium hoppiness with a solid malt-backbone and some citrusiness and a definite, diffuse herbalness and slight iced tea with a touch of honey finish. Nice complexity.
