4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse. Pours an opaque golden orange, little to no head. Aroma is strangely reminiscient of a bottle of Liptonís Iced Tea, verbenna, tea nd not all that much in the way of hops. Body is very rich and almost treacly. Finish is bitter at first on the resinous side of things, and then opens up, becoming increasingly sweet, warming making itself known. LOVE the addition of tea, this is a big improvement over the OG 16th, which wasnít bad but also wasnít of the quality I am used to from Stone.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 24hr old growler fill. Pours a slightly hazed electric orange color with decent head and lacing. Lemon peel is very prominent along with aromas of pine, grapefruit, and a little earthy tea. Taste is bright and almost tangy with a good citrus pop. A good amount of hop bitterness and pine with a subtle hint of green tea leaves. Finish is balanced with a mild sweetness and hop bitterness. Leaves a pleasant citric astringency on the gums.

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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 itís basically a smooth, malt heavy strong ale type beer with hop bitterness. Smooth, even mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange
Aroma: minty like toothpaste, in a good way. Some orange citrus and lemongrass, some pineapple too, not too strong.
Appearance: Super cloudy light caramel brown. White head about an eighth inch high.
Taste: Slightly tingly in mouthfeel, full bodied for sure. Piney citrus flavor at first, some heat, then stronger tea flavor.
Finish: Bitter, slightly dry. Tea flavor is left over, coriander flavor is present as well. A little heat too.
Overall: Unique IPA. I prefer the original but this is certainly worth a whirl.
