Ah yes... another Krunkles beer from Terrapin!

Served in a Schlafly tulip.

A: Poured out a slightly muddy orange color (and on the dark side of that), with a fairly substantial 1/5 finger frothy head that retained its creamy character for quite some time.

S: I didn't read the ingredients until after I smelled it, but overall I got straight up apple juice... and fresh at that! I guess now I can totally get the green tea additive.

T: Sort of like a slightly thinner version of "Midas Touch." Seriously, this was more of a mead than a beer, but I dug that about it. After a few sips, the hop component started to slap the tongue and the ginger component was slight, but effective in this setting. I will say though that I got a pronounced plastic quality the more I sipped.

M: Creamy, not too sweet or spicy, and with a nice fruit bill as well. The carbonation was kinda low, but you really didn't need it to be too high. The lacing was mild and the palate came out fairly clean overall.

O: While not as unusual as the ingredients and the bottle art might dictate, this was a good drinker. Also, for only $7.99, this was a steal!

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours a light golden color with a brownish hue. Good sized vibrant white head with excellent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

S-Green tea, ginseng, honey, some spices and herbal hop resin, a touch of ginger fades into the background as well.

T-Spices hit you at the front. The ginger, faint cinnamon, other herbs and spices mix with the resiny hops fairly well. No green tea on the palate.

MF-Oily, slippery, medium sized body with a fair amount of carb. Nice semi-dry finish.

O-Pretty nice brew. It's unique, but the "Oriental" flavors aren't as pronounced as I'd like them to be. Definitely worth a try.
