3.18/5 rDev -17.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from the 12 oz bottle into my DFH Snifter
A--A mellow orange with a white foamy head with mild bubbles. The head dissipated quickly, but a ring remained around the glass throughout. No lacing on the side of the glass.
S--Green tea leaves, spice, bitter hops. There's a bit of an orange peel and other citrus sweetness, but it is well hidden.
T--Hops are present up front. It hits the tongue with that bitterness I love from Stone brews. Then the tongue is left with a funky green tea taste this is to be expected. Overall, the taste is very dry. Spicy, dry, and tea-like are the best ways to describe it.
M--Medium bodied with very little carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry. I can feel the tongue drying up with each sip.
O--This is an okay brew from Stone, but with the number of amazing IPAs they make, this will not be something I will actively search out. Glad I got to try it though.
