The beer is a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Starts off with a similar candied lemon peel aroma the regular version has. A sweet sugar and toffee note, lots of herbs, and a slight tea quality. Quite woody and herbal. The flavor is sweet and sugary as well as being overly herbal. Quite a bit of tea and candied lemon notes. A bit of alcohol, some bitterness on the finish, and very light rye. As with the regular version, I am not a fan.

DrSilverworm (6317) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at The Lackman. Served in a snifter, the first pour from the keg. Moving the keg seemed to have disturbed the yeast quite a bit, my pour was a completely cloudy faded orange / tan color. Good off white head. Leaves decent lace. Zesty, lemony citrus (grapefruit, some lemongrass) hop aroma. Very herbal with the green tea, it’s an interesting flavor. Nice bitter, zesty taste. Big, thicker body. Almost kind of creamy. Light smooth carbonation. Interesting, tasty beer to savor. It’s a green tea IPA... Makes me think of Terrapin’s Samurai Krunkles, which I thought was much more well put-together, with it’s lighter body, refreshing quality, and even bigger green tea flavor. Still a fine, hearty, and interesting brew though

On tap at brewery. Clear golden orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, honey, caramel, and tea. Silky full bodied palate. Tastes of orange, caramel, grape, dominant green tea, and honey with an earthy bitter finish.

JohnnyJ (4320) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Draft at stone bistro. Golden orange pour with a slight haze and a white head. Citrus, caramel malt, sweetness, tea, and hop bitterness. Ok.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Hazed golden in color with soft white head. Starts hoppy then becomes herbal with a defined green tea taste. Light hop aroma with those same green tea notes.

jstraw (1915) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Draft at the Jerry’s Stone Event. Murky orange with good, creamy, white head / Muted nose of citrus, pine, and green tea / Full body, creamy and lush, sweet with some chewy sugars, excellent balance and bitter finish lurking underneath / Rich flavors of orange, caramel, green tea, cut pine, and grapefruit / Very successful.

bleeng (1513) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2013
Tap at Petrol Station Houston. Cloudy bright gold. Mild nose. Taste is nice floral bitter hops with the tea adding an extra layer of flavor. Strong alcohol presence. Nice.

peteinSD (1364) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Growler fill. Pours a hazy golden color with a nice froth of off-white foam. Aroma is heavy sweet malt with bitterness hops and pine. Taste is smooth, bready malt with rye and a fair amount of sweetness, pine, lingering hop bitterness, and a smooth and light herbal flavor. I cannot smell or taste green tea in this beer. The lemon and citrus from the original 16th anniversary are no longer present and it’s basically a smooth, malt heavy strong ale type beer with hop bitterness. Smooth, even mouthfeel.

jjuf1853 (1238) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Draft at Tampa Palms WOB. Pours a slightly hazy copper amber color. Small white head, but good sudsy webbed lacing along the glass. Aroma has nice herbal notes along with the pine and citrus hops. Flavor is interesting as the tea comes through more in the aftertaste.
