Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2012
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. Smooth Palate. 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.

On tap @ MateVeza. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Floral and grassy aromas up front. Some peach, tea, and bread. A very herbal character. The flavor is big on the bready malt sweetness. Lots of tea and herbs, too. Floral hops, a fair amount of grass, and mild orange peel. Light bitterness on the finish.

Spicy, fruity, not the most hoppy of IPA’s which is nice with the hop bombs you can get out there. So also not that bitter, long and dry on the finish. The tea really does add a little extra something to the beer, nice

Bottle. Golden with white head. Spicy peppery yeast aroma with caramel and hay, lemon and honey. Taste has clear tea flavour, lemon and honey, caramel. Thought it was a bit weird at first but the tea is actually quite nice

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 31, 2013
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.

Has a slid aroma but minimal. Taste is bitter pine with a hint of citrus (little watery) , solid beer, definitely underrated.
