Pours a nice orange with a nice fluffy head. But the smell... is urine. No green tea (and I've had far more than my fair share of green tea). Perhaps a vague hop aroma, perhaps a hint of booze, not even Simcoe cat piss, just... "maybe I should drink more water" pee.
If you can get past the smell, it tastes fine. A little too boozy for me, a little too bittered for my palate (like most of Stone's brews), but tastes pretty average. Pretty nice mouthfeel.
Makes me wonder if I have a bad bottle. I've heard good things - some rave reviews, but even "like Stone IPA plus green tea" sounds incredibly delicious to me. Bummer.
