I've been waiting on this one for a little bit now, so was excited to finally get some.
Poured into a tulip, nice honey coloration all the way through, with a lot of floaties, similar to a snow globe. It gets a nice finger and a half head with good retention. Lots of hops, but the tea leaves are definitely there. The flavor is surprisingly green tea-ish, I wasn't expecting it to be the leader in taste. It didn't last long before hops came rushing through.
This was a rather refreshing, satisfying beer. That being said, caution needed to be taken to sip and enjoy, rather than gulp and consume.
