3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, purchased for $9 from Beer Run. Poured into a snifter. Awesome noticeably ginger aroma, and green tea. Creamy, smooth, lighter carbonation, above average body. Good herbal mildly soapy hop aroma. Light lemon. Seeing the rice pudding. Definitely floral. Light wheat. Complex, light bitter, with some zest. Amber/orange color made hazy by lots of particles suspended in the body. Awesome, creative take on an IPA. More enjoyable than Stone’s green tea attempt, from what I remember... This is much more smooth and balanced. Excellent, interesting brew. Would love to revisit.
