Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Picked up at the local Binny's right when the case was opened up.
A: Pours a very hazy orange with light yellow hues. There is a TON of sediment floating around in the bottle. The pour propagates a nice off white head that leaves some sticky lace behind.
S: The hops are there in the form of some nice citrus and light pine. I'm getting some faint green tea that brings in a nice bitterness to round it out.
T: There is light citrus hop at the beginning, but then the tea pushes its way to the front leaving a dried tea leaf bitterness. There is a very present alcohol taste at the backend, but there is no heat behind it.
M: Crisp and smooth. Light bodied with a light bitter tea left on the tongue. Decent carbonation.
O: I really don't think the tea blended well with this. This seemed like a bunch of ingredients side by side as opposed to blended together. Decent, but wouldn't revisit.
Serving type: bottle
