Notes/Commercial Description:
In making our signature pale ale we knew we wanted to do something different. We needed something that stood out, complimented the subtlety of our english pale ale, and said we will be a pale ale like no other – whole leaf tea was the perfect ingredient. We use whole leaf black tea to add a subtle tea flavor and aroma. A refreshing and dry mouth feel give this beer a smooth finish & a unique bitterness. An incredible amount of tea goes into this beer so much so our brewers have a tough time getting the whole leaf tea out when done (picture the tea party men tossing chests of tea overboard). We named it ParTea Pale Ale because the flavors seen to dance on your tongue and they party all night.

Looking for a Pale Ale with something more? Look no further.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

(best by 12/12/14 - poured into a balloon)

L: quite cloudy, peachy-orange liquid... frothy, off-white foam - looks to wanna stay, but drops into a cauldron-y swirl... a bit of messy lace, to and fro

S: dried orange peel, earthy west coast and English hops... light caramel malts, English-style esters poking around the edges (or is that the hops?) ... I have to admit, this smell is enticing... dense, arguably marzipan cookie notes at the base...

T: oooh... hmmm... the tea certainly stands out on the palate, its commanding, tannic bitterness takes hold on the back and inches its way back a bit, about 1/3 of the way... just how much gypsum do they load into their beers?!... -light-moderate, mild malty background, but strikingly dry (see - gypsum)... as the bitterness and hop/tea flavor builds on the palate, it start to take on a citrus pith flavor

F: more fullish than expected, with an unfiltered, dull-filmy hop-residue giving it a rustic flair... the finish is deceptively dry

O: all quasi-issues aside, I knocked this back fairly swiftly... the moreish factor is actually quite high... the best overall assessment I can muster is that it drinks like an authentic cask ale from a bottle with a solid, unwavering beam of dried-leafy bitterness... I would like another
