2011 Collaboration

A: Pours a hazy to cloudy golden peach in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation and some orange and golden yellow highlights. There are significant amounts of white particles in suspension. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that redues to a medium sized patch of very thin film covering the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus/orange hops along with some lighter notes of green tea.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of pale malts with a light amount of wheat. There are light to moderate flavor of citrus/orange hops and some light notes of green tea. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which lingers for quite a while.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and slightly crisp with moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer has really held up surprisingly well considering the style - the alcohol is well hidden and the hop flavors has not really faded much over time. I liked this better than a lot of the Stone beer as this has a slightly different hop profile.

pretty old as far ipas go, about 6 months, and according to stone this beer is 3 months out of code but it smells and tastes pretty darn fresh. hazy burnt orange hue with a white head.

earthy and herbal hop character with a soft tea presence on the nose.

light breast malt body lets the hops and tea shine. big herbal leafy hop presence throughout with a nice bitter finish. tea comes through in the back end and as a lingering flavor on finish. semisweet tea flavor lingers in the mouth. pretty nice, hops and tea compliment each other rather nice.
