In making our signature pale ale we knew we wanted to do something different. We needed something that stood out, complimented the subtleness of our pale ale, and said we will a pale ale like no other - whole leaf tea was the perfect ingredient. We then looked to the Sorachi Ace hop to produce a unique lemon flavor to compliment the tea. An incredible amount of tea goes into this beer so much so our brewers have a tough time getting the whole leaf tea out when done (picture the tea party men tossing chests of tea overboard). We named it Tea Party Pale Ale because the flavors seen to dance on your tongue and they stand strong in a sea of mediocrity.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 You can really taste a sweet tea flavor. The ale is good. The color is nice. The tea gives a nice aroma. Bottle & tap

Pours copper-orange with a half finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, bready malts, sweet malts, and some black tea notes. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouth feel and a semi bitter, medium finish. Overall,a interesting, decently tasty APA that feature tea notes nicely.

12oz bottle. A tea APA. Massive out of control foamy off-white head on top of a dull orange-tan body. Tastes bad, infected. The tea and the lemony hops really don’t work. This is a failure of a beer. 3 strikes and you are out as far as my future Prism purchases.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Hops, citrus and malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Truth in advertising. This is indeed a pale with a tea flavor. More interesting, perhaps, is that ther are some sour notes going on. Not sure if I’d have this in my regular rotation, but no complaints here either.

Clear orange color with a thin white head. Aroma of soggy grains, lemons, herbal ice tea brew. Mainly bitter flavor like unsweetened tea. Interesting idea but not one that should be repeated.

Lightrider (344) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a haze orange with a thin lace head. Aroma is well bitter tea and hop?s. Taste is a nice unsweetened summer time tea with a good citrus back bone. Finish is warm.

Sampled a small cup of this beer at the Collegeville Wegmans. This review will have to do until I get the opportunity to visit the brewery in person. The Par Tea poured a dark orange color with very little head. I smelled a faint hint of hops, along with some black tea. The body was smooth and very drinkable, but lacked overall flavor. The tea really showed through in the finish and the aftertaste as well.
