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.

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.

pour a yellowish orange with decent head and a little lace. The smell was a little surprising in respect to the ginger and green tea. I really don't pick up anything other than a standard hop smell. The taste is slightly above avg only cause I like the slight green tea taste at the close. The ginger never really come through though. Overall, it a decent beer but not as rememberable as I was hoping.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

Mildly hazed pale amber, thin lacing does stick though. Ginger, green tea, spice, kumquats, lemon pith, faint alcohol, biscuity grain and yeast in the nose. Rounded and full smoothness, moderate sized body. Ginger and green tea with some jasmine spicing battle it out as the hops bring for a pretty heft bitterness and flavor profile. The malt pushes through all of that barely with hints of bread, biscuity grain and dried grass. Melon rind, quince paste, peppercorn and pumpkin seeds come to mind. Finishes spicy with a stodgy hop and ends up pretty much dry.

Truthfully the 1st sip was almost a turn off and my tastebuds tried to process everything all at once ... by the 3rd or 4th sip I though "Wait, this is actually pretty good", still growing on me. Cheers for extreme beer!!
