This bottle pours an awesome opaque orange with a medium sized white head. Mostly citrusy grapefruit aromas with some piney resinous hops and herbal green tea notes in there as well.
Plenty of big juicy hops for plenty of bold flavors. Citrusy sweetness and piney bitterness create an awesome blend of flavors. Herbal green tea flavors linger in the background and become more pronounced as the beer warms and also prevalent in the finish.
Medium bodied. Somewhat sticky texture. Goes down way too easy for a 9.2% ABV beer. Love the long bitter hoppy finish accentuated by the green tea. Only complaint would be that I would have liked to gotten a stronger green tea flavor.
