3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden with a two finger sized head that sticks and leaves mild lacing. Mango, peaches, apricots, and grapefruit all stand out on the aroma. The first few sips didn’t work for me, but they began to work together well as I kept drinking. Nice balance to this one. A bitter grapefruit finish that lingers, ass well as that green tea that started to show. Very reminiscent of your typical Rye IPA. Good beer!
Bottle. Clear yellow with big head. Initial green tea, hop, malt aroma. Very smooth mouth feel. Taste is floral and sweet malt.Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2013

Bomber. Tons of carbonation. Hazy orange with a beige head. Spicy, malty and slight tea aromas. Fruity, candy and only a bit of bitterness. jjgmd (2212) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bomber. Pours a yellow golden rusty color with a subtle shade of green and a nice wispy white head. Nose is hoppy with chai, citrus and some subtle sweetness. Taste is hoppy, bitter with tea, vanilla and chai flavor, quite flavorful. Finish is dry and ends with moderate bitterness, with the same flavors. Interesting and pleasant IPA. quaff score 8 / 10 zgaier (1962) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a dark orange with a white head and hoppy, earthy aroma. Taste is of hops, citrus, and resin while mellowed by green tea. chai, and flower, earthy notes which follow leading to a dry, slight bitter finish. Nice IPA, different brew with mellowing green tea Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 5, 2013
Interesting and a little bit weird in taste. The name was more intriguing though. Some nice features and aromatic was.

22oz bottle. Surpringly orange-tinted hazy pour with a ~2cm off-white head. Aroma is relatively subtle, resiny, floral to my nose. Bitter up front, moderately sweet, long finish. For what it’s worth, and having eaten many "green tea" flavored snacks, I don’t taste the commercial "green tea" taste I expected here. I do not know what part the tea plays in the process but perhaps it adds a bit of refreshing lightness here. Great beer! superspak (5784) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours moderately hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, green tea, bread, light caramel, floral, grass, light pine, and herbal earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, tea, and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, lemon zest, orange zest, green tea, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, light pine, and herbal earthiness. Light pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, green tea, bread, light caramel, floral, grass, light pine, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop, malt, and tea flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, lightly creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice spiced IPA. All around nice balance and complexity of malt, hop, and tea flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering. williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Color is pineapple yellow with a decent head. Sweats on the outside of the glass.
The hop aroma is flowery, with a perfume to it. Just a touch of pine oil, and a hint of tangerine.
The flavor is a somewhat bitter hop at first, much moreso than the aroma. The hops are a little flowery, a little soft, but very pleasant.
Feels thick and chunky. blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Draught at Pizza Plant, Williamsville, NY. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small diminishing frothy white head and some minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, mild tea, hops and light vegetal notes. Decent hoppy flavour backed by caramel malt and some tea. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. Just good, not great.
