A - Pours a cloudy orange with a small head and minimal lacing.

S - An interesting combination of hoppy citrus and the expected green tea scent coming through. It's light and pleasant.

T - The tea flavor definitely comes forward at first, with a subtle citrus and spice as well. Slightly bitter finish. The alcohol content is hidden well, I wouldn't guess it's over 9%.

M - This beer came off as over-carbonated. It was smooth though.

O - An interesting beer that I was excited to try. It disappointed slightly but it was still refreshing and different.

A - Pours light orange with two finger head that fades quickly. Floaty bits of yeast dance around.

S - Citrus, orange, green tea.

T - Light citrus followed by a wave of alcohol and then the green tea hits you and a dry finish.

M - Medium body with dry mouthfeell.

O - Interesting collaboration beer. The hops may have faded somewhat as I have had this bottle for a few months. The green tea aspect is noticeable but I don't think it adds anything positive to this beer. At 6.99 for a 12oz. bottle this is a bit overpriced for what you get.
