Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Hazy gold beer, little off white head. Palate is light, dry and airy. Big earl grey bergamot!! Little fruity sweetness underneath. Light floral sherbet. An unusual and very tasty beer!

Cloudy tan with a dense rocky head. Aroma has orange, florals, lemonbalm, and some malts. Fruity, light phenols, hop bitterness and lots of tannins. Long tannic finish...tea is strong but w the bergamot it makes a lot of sense.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Surprisingly good and tasty beverage. The Earl grey lends a flavourful complexity to the IPA. Hoppy aroma. Above average mouthfeel. Fruity notes and very good drinkability. Lasting head on orange body.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 2014-01-17. Hazy orange body nice white head and lace. Aroma is moderate, mix of muddled citrus. Flavour is bitter, moderate tea notes, bit tannic as it goes. First impression is better than the end result. More hops and less tea please. Average bodied palate, mild carbonation. 7/3/6/3/13 Bottle shared by Gorbalev

2013-10-20. Murky dark pastel orange body with a small frothy white head. Aroma is muted, light muddled hops, earthy whispers. Flavour is fairly bitter, kind of astringent citrus character, orange citrus seeds. Average plus bodied palate, some floaters low carbonation. Cask needs to settle out I think. 6/3/6/3/14 Session 3, Cask Days 2013, Toronto

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 My Bottom Line :
Guava juice blends in perfectly with this IPA’s tropical hop signature, while Earl Grey tea adds an edge that few IPAs have out there. Complex, refreshing and just different enough to stand out.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the light amber haze.
-Bergamot is very harmonious with the chosen hop profile.
-All in all, the flavor profile is nearly balanced.
-Fish satay with rice vermicelli: perfectly harmonious.
-The mouthfeel is fluffy and relatively dry.
-The flavor profile is never too boring not too intense.

Bottles, and on tap at Bières et Saveurs festival in Chambly.

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Hazy dull golden amber with a lively white head. Aroma is very floral and perfumey. The palate opens up with a bright burst of guava fruit and tart citrus, moving into perfumey bergamot notes with a slightly powdery quality. Finish is longhand bitter. Very aromatic and intriguing. And enjoyable!

Draft @ Delirium. Orangée, col crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme restitue effectivement le côté feuilles de thé suivi d’une amertume houblonnée certaine. Le tout oscille sur les agrumes avec ce bouquet feuillu. J’ai malheureusement eu peine à y détecter la goyave. Palais présente un thé omniprésent sans pour cela dominer toute la bière. Le tout garde un côté feuilles de thé, citronné qui confère une amertume modérée. Je note également une présence de grains qui donnent un fini sec et toujours ce profil de thé. Ici vu les propriétés du Earl Grey il peut s’avérer compliqué de distinguer les propriétés d’agrumes du thé et des houblons.
