3.53/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Hazy, medium golden color with a patchy residue of diminishing white foam head. No lacing remains on the glass and solids hang suspended in the column.

S: Earthy and herbaceous in a fresh way; slightly medicinal. After repeated exposure it becomes suggestive of a wet, grassy field. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins dry, with abundant grassy hop aromatics that partly conceal a sharp but clean medicinal thread. Mild acidity transitions to the middle where anise, initially sharp and aggressive but then mellowing, is featured. The finish delivers the most tea-like characteristics--earthy and herbaceous in a particularly honest way that is suggestive of green tea--with mild to moderate bitterness. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, slightly acidic on the palate but also featuring a fair amount of alcohol heat, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This is a unique beer that speaks effectively to its star ingredient, but may stumble in its attempt to represent the IPA/DIPA styles. In fact, its qualities are more in line with those of an imperial pilsner. The involvement of two Japanese breweries that are only poorly represented in the USA is exciting, and the finished product suggests a fusion of cultures wherein an American IPA is granted such a host of Japanese sensibilities as to render it almost unrecognizable.

A bottle into a pint glass.

Japanese Green Tea hass a very bright golden color with some hints of bronze in the cuts. Very clean looking beer. Nice bright white bubbles leaving a lasting thin cap, no stick.

Smell is very piney hopped with some 3-C action. Some citrus like scents with a smudge of pale malt barely. FRESH! The green tea gives off a earthy scent. Biscuit and more grass with warming.

A nice punch of hops right up front, brash yet not scorching palate wrecking. Citrus pineapple/grapefruit and an earthy pine. Green tea leaves it's marks towards the end and is more fresh leafy, from the ground, than actual tea. There is a touch of lemon. Some malt leaves a small bite of bread to keep things in check.

Feel is between light and medium and super dry after some swigs. It's bitter and hop forward with nice bubbles to liven it up, this is not dead in any way, at least out the bottle.

I would drink this again in a heartbeat, the alcohol is a bit big and only shows itself a bit in the aftertaste. Maybe after a two month nap the tea will even out, but I like what it brings now.

Happen to love both green tea and beer, but together, who knows? Crazier things have happened. 12 oz bottle for $3 and change, worth a shot I figure.

Cloudy orange hue with tons of spare sediment floating around and a slightly off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Appears to have a pretty thick syrup like consistency off the pour.

Aromas are intriguing, IPA citrus and floral hop presence cut with green tea. Grapefruit, resin, lemon and of course, tea are really well defined, with a sweet malt backbone as well. I was expecting a much subtler flavor from the tea, but it really stands out. I've never had anything quite like this. Its herbal and piney at the same time, with neither one trouncing the other. Interesting and well done.

Really well balanced beer, the tea is again prevalent but not an overwhelming complexity. Still has all those characteristics that really puts Stone in the upper tier of IPAs, but adds a rather unique twist. Noticeable lingering hop bitterness, apparent citrus and spiked tea. The more I drink, the more I like it.

Mouthfeel is clean, despite the ridiculous amount of sediment floating around. As I noted before, mildly syrupy with a medium body. I drank this rather quickly for the ABV content, so I'd say the alcohol is rather well masked. Bravo

This beer might fall into the novelty category, but I'd buy it again for sure. Shining example of how much you can really do with beer if the creativity is there. Cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

Coral-orange, hazed to the point of opacity. A half-finger head of tan fizz pops away within seconds, becoming a thin ring.

Grapefruit peel, crackers, moist white bread, lemonade. The green tea imparts an herbal, almost musky quality.

Dried grapefruit and lemon peel, hints of lilac and honey, some lightly toasted and buttered biscuits. The green tea is here as well, interacting with the citrus. Together, it tastes somewhat like those gummies you ate with lunch as a kid.

High, almost painful carbonation amidst a smooth medium body. Moderate bitterness lingers on the tongue, while the mouth and nose rightly fill with alcohol fumes after each sip.

An interesting take on IPA. The green tea augments the usual hoppy flavors. It tastes good, and knowing that my payment’s going in part to support relief efforts in Japan makes it taste all the better.

A- Pale gold with decent head.

S- Great Stone hops aromas. Slight hint of earthiness from the green tea.

T- Citrusy fruity hops. Lots of green tea on the tongue.

M- Good carbonation and body.

O- I loved this beer. The green tea lent a great complexity to the IPA backbone of the beer. I will definitely try this again.

A big thanks to Chris (Cavery) for this beer. A very interesting beer I am happy to try. Cheers buddy!

Appearance – Pours a tangerine color into a sniffer glass. LOADS of floaties are chilling in the bottom section of the glass. Very little head is achieved with a moderate pour, and any head that does show up leaves the party soon after arriving. Slight lacing is left on the sides of the glass.

Smell – Somewhat muted overall. The tea was an easy one to pick out, slight hops, citrus, and grass.

Taste – Fruiter than expected. Lemon, grapefruit, and slight tropical fruit. I can quickly taste the cane sugar and green tea overtaking the initial flavors, and the sip ends with spicy hops, pine, and grassy/floral notes.

Mouthfeel – Medium light bodied, crisp carbonation.

Overall – Honestly, not as bad as I was expecting going into this. This actually grew on me more and more as I drank it. Is it an DIPA I’d drink every day? No…but honestly I would for sure have this again. No alcohol detection in either the aroma or taste, and the beer was a pleasant surprise for the night. Glad I was able to try it.

$3 or so @ Yankee's, poured into ceramic lowenbrau mug.

A- Pale pale beer with a TON of sediment in it.

S- Nose is odd.. lots of hops but something else, guessing the tea.

T- Zippy, fruity hops awash with lemon/lime/orange. Tea is pretty strong too and comes across as strong green veggies. Weird. Very spritzy on the tongue. Scrubbing bubbles wash away the flavors, minty aftertaste.

M- Lots of alcohol present.. I guess it's expected @ 9.2, a bit much though. Good carbonation and moderate body.

O- Interesting, I'd like to try and pair this with something to see if I interpret it differently. Points for originality, but a bit of a head-scratcher.

Poured from a clearish brown bottle into a snifter glass. There's a lengthy description of, well, something, but as it is all in Japanese kanji, I can't read a word of it! What few words there are in English indicate that this is a bottle conditioned brew which should not be aged.

Pours a dull copper color, with evident sediment swirling beneath a diminishing white, frothy head that has the appearance of sea-foam left on the sand after the wave has retreated to the sea.

Smells as if the green tea was made of pine needles! Very pine-forward on the nose, with notes of grapefruit, resin, and mild floral. The astringent aroma begins to die down as the beer settles and the head reduces to a thin lid.

This starts off so astringent it is like solvent; could this be the taste of varnish? What little malt there is has a honey sweetness, but it is buried beneath a tsunami of taste-bud stripping hop resin. The back end of this has a more oaty, herbal feel which could be the green tea. Honestly, however, this is really nothing more than a one-note hop bitter.

Medium bodied, harsh, astringent, dry and bitter; suck on a lemon peel for a similar experience mouthfeel-wise.

While I am a huge fan of Stone Brewing, and applaud their aggressive use of hops and their experimental collaborations, I've got to say this one has proven too much for me. Unless your idea of a good IPA is the feeling, rather than the taste, of bitter, you may want to take a pass on this brew.

From notes 8/2/11. Pours a nice amber that starts sorta cloudy but very fine sediment quickly settles out. Small off-white head. Aroma is pineapple, mango, kiwi, pine resin, honeysuckle, caramel and a very floral green tea note. I wish the green tea was stronger because I’m mostly getting a standard pine resin tinged with tropical fruits and backed up by caramel IPA smell. Taste has more tea presence, but it’s mostly felt as a tannic note in the finish. Otherwise, the flavor is mildly dry with a big pine resin bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty standard for an IPA, except for those tannic edges. It’s a decent DIPA, but I wish that they had tried to push the boundaries a bit more. The green tea flavor is mild compared to the big hop presence. While I didn't dislike this beer, this is a tough category.

A - Orange yellow medium, no head no lace. Lots o sediments in the bottle.

S - Herbal tea like and kinda spicy but not.

T - Starts off bitter, and works into a tea flavor, finishes clean and with that stone ipa taste of deep hops.

M - Good feel, clean slightly bubbly, stronger aftertaste but balanced with everything going on.

O - Overall I kinda like this one, good collaboration effort and I guess proceeds are going to the Japan Earthquake effort. I have always liked stone ipa and this was a great change for that style, stone is really trying to be opened minded like other breweries around town with different styles of a main brew.

Poured a cloudy and dirty light orange with a nice creamy off white head, good retention and some sticky lacing.

The smell is very funky, with a wet blanket mineral quality that I can't quite put my finger on, not all hoppy like I would expect, a lot of minerals.

Wow what a stange combination of flavors, a very nice mixture of fresh green tea, bready malts, and a big blast of very herbal and medicinal hops. Very easy drinking up front, becomes nicely bitter the more you drink.

The mouthfeel is super thick and chewy with a long resiny finish.

This is a fun beer, very unique and nicely drinkable.

12oz bottle.

A- Pours a very hazy orange color with a thick white foam head that leaves some spotted lacing.

S- Large dose of piney hops and citrus. The green tea is very faint in the nose and maybe just adds a touch of herbal aroma.

T- This is a booze bomb. Huge wave of alcohol initially with a very pronounced bitterness. Grapefruit and pine needles, fresh cut grass, hop resin, and a very green finish. Very light on the green tea flavor but I think it compliments well.

M- Medium bodied and well carbonated. Very hot from the alcohol.

O- A very cool idea and a pretty solid brew. Wish they would have toned down the ABV to around 7% so that some of the flavors could shine a little more.

Japanese Green Tea IPA pours a slightly hazy amber color, with a small white head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving only a few spots of lace behind.

The aroma is light with orange and lemon citrus notes and a touch of mint. An odd earthy note of leather and alcohol are also present.

Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is thick on the palate with a firm carbonated snap and a dry finish. The flavor reminds me of a double IPA with some spices mixed in. It starts with notes of orange and lemon citrus. Plenty of malt sweetness throughout balances out the hop bitterness. It finishes dry with light spicy 'tea' notes.

An interesting beer that's definitely tasty, but I thought there would be more tea flavors. It's basically a double IPA that's well balanced with an odd earthyness to it. Hides its nearly 10% abv well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Poured this one into my tulip glass. Moderate pour rate generates about a 2 finger high creamy white head that starts to subside right away. Lace is light-moderate. Color is a murky honey color.

Smell - Smell is actually really appealing to me. It smells like a mix of very nice crisp and moderately strong lemon citrus, grapefruit/other tropical fruit, floral/leafy notes (big surprise there with a tea IPA) and light green tea, some mint from the green tea, a bit of pine, resinous qualities, some sweetness or sweet malt, honey, just a bit of malt backbone/slight bread to play a supporting role while letting the tea and hops have the spotlight. Seems like the green tea aromas mix in really well with the aromatic hops used.

Taste - Taste is pretty much what I expected from the aroma. Green tea and slight minty flavors are on the lighter side, but still noticeable and very complimentary to the main flavors of lemon grass/citrus and grapefruit/mango/papaya flavors. Also in there is a some bitterness, pine, leafy notes, lighter malt backbone with decent sweetness and maybe some honey from the aroma. I actually really like this taste of this. It's got some pretty close hop qualities to some of my favorite DIPAs, but with the added twist of the green tea/light minty flavors.

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel is very nice for an DIPA. Consistency is smooth (close to crisp but not quite), carbonation is light-creamy, body is on the lighter side of medium, and the finish is actually pretty quick, light, and crisp. Overall the mouth is lighter for a DIPA which I appreciate because it makes them much easier to drink multiples of. If I had more of these, I'd certainly be drinking another right after this one!

Overall - This one is really another home run in the Stone Collaboration series. Like I said above, I really wish I had more of these, but I'm just happy to have been able to get one (which happened to be the last one at my local BevMo). So I really can't complain. In my opinion this IPA couldn't have gotten much better, and I was expecting just a decent beer. This is definitely a unique beer and one that I think anyone who likes DIPAs should at least try!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

I like my Green Tea, and I like my IPA's, yet the combination seems a bit curious however. This beer pours a hazed golden orange in color with some interesting floaties amid the boil of carbonation. Half an inch of white foam offered moderate retention.

Offers a light citric aroma with a background hint of earthy leather, tea leaf and some 'intriguing' yeast notes. Pleasant though uninspiring overall.

Citric notes carry to the flavor and offer a well balanced yet not in your face bitterness. A light orange bitterness segues to a sweet and oily middle, yet then allows for a drying tea like finish. Notes of orange/tangelo exist throughout the palette.

Interesting though odd brew. The pucker of the tea does balance with the residual sweetness of the beer to disguise the 9% in a mysterious way. Yet overall it's a bit of a stray cat.

hazy orange with a little and quick-fading head. sharp herbal notes, the green tea is in there, slight woody nuttiness, pine and citrus. Starts out done up and bitter, the green tea comes through mid-palate and then gets washed away in a wave of herbs and pine.
The green tea works, but could be done a little better to integrate into the beer. As it is, the beer seems to develop in a series of distinct stages that seem like they're still getting to know each other.
Perhaps a different green tea? Or different hops?
I do like that the malt was not overly complicated and it finished dry, allowing the hops and tea to do their thing. Maybe if this sits a few more weeks in the bottle it'll get a little better. Not bad, though.

Orange/Yellow and hazy. Big creamy head that thins out but stays present throughout the majority of the beer. Nose is mainly hops but there is a subtle base of cereal grains. Hops are grassy and herbal. Flavor has the grain base like the nose but the hop character is different. Fruity grapefruits at first but it finishes with a grassy and green tea dryness. The green tea flavor isn't as present as the astringency that comes with a good cup of green tea. Dry and earthy finish with a crisp cereal body makes me want to keep quenching my thirst. For the lightness of the body I was not expecting it to be over 9%.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Chill hazed burnt orange with next to no head formation.

Smell is sweet and hoppy even from a distance. Hops are mostly pine with a fainter sweet tea aroma. A little bit woody and grassy, still mostly pine scented.

Starts out semi-dry with a green tea taste and a woody finish. This is almost sweet but the hop load keeps it tamed. Decently woody with a strong oak twang to it almost has a vanilla taste. Alcohol can't be tasted but it REALLY warms your chest up.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall it is good but not spectacular. When you drink a stone beer you expect great beers, this is OK but I expected more from Stone.

A beer for a real good cause,I had to buy a few.Poured into a standard pint a medium golden with a tinge of orange,a thinner but well sustained white head atop.Aromas are a little thin with citric hops predominant,not much malt presence there.Flavors are citric hops with the herbalness of green tea coming in late,a biscuit base holds up well into the finish.The green tea for me plays a bigger role than many others who reviewed this beer but its not something over the top,again Iam glad I grabbed a few.

Pours a hazy orange with a small frothy white head. The smell is amazing, nice citrus hop smell with a healthy dose of green tea. Very big smell, very inviting, with some sweet notes. The taste is not as sweet or citrusy as the nose would suggest, a big hop flavor up front, not very sweet or bitter. The green tea follows behind and finishes in the aftertaste. The hops and green tea blend very well together. The mouthfeel is a smooth medium, good balance in flavors and nice carbonation. Overall a very successful beer, the tastes are nice, a beer worth trying. The ABV is not very noticeable here which is surprising, but it can sneak up on you. Definitely worth trying.

Enjoyed at Stone Brewery on National IPA Day.

I was very skeptical of this beer as I'm not a Green Tea fan but was very pleasantly surprised. Also the 9.2 ABV made me even more skeptical as to how it would taste with the Green Tea factored in.

The smell of lemon, green tea and hops were easily detectable.

The flavor was bright with the Green Tea coming first followed quickly by the DIPA flavor I'm used to from Stone.

The color was orange and was served in an 8oz glass.

Not what I was expecting at all from this beer and have since tried it in the bottle; I'm still enjoying it. Definitely some sediment in the bottles but not going to deter me.

Pours a hazy golden color with 2 fingers of tight, white head that recedes slowly. No lacing on the glass.

Aroma is citrus hops, some herbal/floral aromas and backing maltiness. There are hints of lavender and a bit of earthiness.

Flavor is sweet malt up front with bright hops mingling. Hop bitterness balances midway through and some herbal flavors emerge. Towards the finish a nice, toasty green tea flavor is evident and it plays nice with the herbal/floral hops. The finish leaves a nice balance of hop bitterness, malt and hop/tea flavors. The alcohol is barely evident.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation, leaves a crisp feeling in the mouth.

Overall this is a nice American style IPA with a twist of complexity and some interesting flavors throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Stone Imperial glass. Bright orange color and a bit of unfiltered look to it. A whirlwind of carbonation bubbles lead to a small one finger head that is bright white colored and sea foam in appearance. Lace is gonna be questionable, and doesn't stick around, but with the high ABV it was expected.

Smell is lemon grass, with just a bit of sweetness and some belgian aromas.

Taste is really different. At first I get hop citrusness of yellow grapefruit and sweetness of pineapple (normal) that is quickly replaced with a kind of malt and fresh plant taste that almost explodes in my mouth, I guess is the tea. The alcohol comes late in the flavor profile too. Quite enjoyable though!

The mouth is very bright and carbonated. There is no part of this beer that wants to lay down and stick with you. Refreshing is a word that works. There is just a bit of alcohol burn late.

Overall I really enjoyed this. When I read that it was brewed with Belgian candied sugar I was a bit hesitant, but leave it to Stone to nail a one of a kind brew. I hope the money this raises helps many displaced Japanese families. Cheers Stone!!

A: Pours hazy golden into my pint glass with little head.

S: I smell the green tea, and hops. There's also this other smell a funky smell. Reminds me of chlorine for some reason.

T: I taste a little green tea. I don't know if it was meant to be overwhelming like the belgo anise stout or if it's supposed to be this way but I would like more green tea. The little I do taste goes well with the hops though. Everything is balanced out which is also a +1 for me. The belgo anise was too lopsided with anise flavor and that's all I tasted.

MF: Bitterness from the hops. Other than that nothing really.

O: Not bad collaboration from Stone that goes to benefit the victims of the Japan disaster. Wished for a little more green tea flavor but it's still a good beer. Even better for $2.99.
