A&S - Pours a hazy sunburst orange with a fingers worth of off white head. Tons of sediment throughout. Lots of green tea and citrus hops as it warms. Its like an Asian Stone IPA. Carmel malt, a light fruit like peaches, and slight alcohol also comes through as the beer warms.
T&M - Hits flat and sweet, then as the carbonation builds the body bursts with juicy hops and green tea, very interesting. Slight alcohol burn, with a sweet bitter finish. Perfectly carbonated medium/heavy bodied beer.
O - An amazing take on the IPA and DIPA. Looking forward to more takes on this style. Perfectly carbonated in my opinion, the way its sweet and flat, then builds in carbonation really showcases the fresh hop and Camellia flavors. Well done to all three breweries! Stay thirsty my friends.
