2 finger head with lots of lace. Aroma of pineapple and a gym locker. Medium mouth. Taste has some flowery notes but the green tea really dominates anything that is in there. Interesting beer with the green tea action.

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.

Draft at the Jerrys 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.

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, its an interesting flavor. Nice bitter, zesty taste. Big, thicker body. Almost kind of creamy. Light smooth carbonation. Interesting, tasty beer to savor. Its a green tea IPA... Makes me think of Terrapins Samurai Krunkles, which I thought was much more well put-together, with its lighter body, refreshing quality, and even bigger green tea flavor. Still a fine, hearty, and interesting brew though

Sathorael (159) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
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.

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 its basically a smooth, malt heavy strong ale type beer with hop bitterness. Smooth, even mouthfeel.

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.
