3.48/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clouded, faded golden-orange body with a small-sized, brief, off-white head. Head dies off rather rapidly, though there remains little slivers of lace on the descent.

Smell: The malts remain modest in aroma, just some pale malted graininess, serving to send up the varied hop notes, some citric citrus fruit rinds, pointed florals, and vague, encompassing earthiness. Light hints of the green tea, rice, and ginger -- I'm surprised I'm noting the green tea as well as I am and also surprised it's far less gingery than anticipated.

Taste: Pale malts, faintly bready and with a bit of cooked sugar for a small amount of short-lived sweetness. Floral, brightly citrusy hops along with the green tea. Very low hint of jasmine rice. Florals, earthiness, citrus, green tea, and a meager sprinkling of ginger swirl around with the hop bitterness until the drying, soft finish with a linger earthy, spicy, bitter quality in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel.

Overall: An India Pale Ale with some interesting additives. A little ginger goes a long way for me, so I'm glad it remains fairly subtle.

3.15/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance- Pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head the recedes quickly with no lacing.

Smell- Bready with some citrus and hints of ginger, fairly subdued smell.

Taste- Weird blend of alcohol, ginger, coconut, orange and holiday spices. Pretty sweet, almost no hop flavor or bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Overall- Not sure what I would classify this, not a typical IPA. It isn't a terrible beer but very weird smell and flavor. I don't think I would buy it again.

Pours a quite cloudy peach color, some sediment. Soapy white topping and a bit of lace. Smells of fruit, citrus, peach, herb.
In the taste, green tea, herb, pith, jasmine, and leaves. I'm getting a lot of green tea in the after taste as well as melon. Dries out with hop earthiness in the finish and a heft of tea. Alcohol is mild. Medium bodied, well carbonation. Overall, I like green tea IPAs, and this is a good one.
