Pours a fairly clear orange copper color with a one finger cream head that dissipates into a solid layer of foam. Lots of debris in suspension.
Aroma is fairly citrusy, lemon, grapefruit, a bit of caramel malt breadiness, and herbal tea.
Flavor is heavily green tea throughout, with an herbal bitter finish. Lemon tang emerges in the initial taste and gives way eventually to the bitterness. Mint and floral flavors are intertwined in the green tea component.
Body is moderate, with a moderate amount if carbonation and slight alcohol warmth. Floaties are undetectable.
An interesting beer that delivers on its claims. Lots of green tea and fruity, bitter hop. It's very drinkable, given the abv. A bit too biter for the somewhat uncomplicated hop profile.
