RW80 (544) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
0,33 cl botle Appearance: Light amber with a medium white foamy head, leaving some lacing. Aroma: Earl grey (Bergamot +herbs) on a malty backbone with some citric and floral hops pushing the bergamot furher upfront. Taste: Huge bermaot aste upfront (very refreshing) followed by other citric and herbal tones by the tea, some biscuit tones in addition, which work lovely with the palate. Finish is bitter and longlsasting with quite some tanine, floral and citric taste. Medium body and average carbonation A masterpiece and a great idea to combine theearl grey bergamot taste wih a solid IPA.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Pinkish golden color. Orange, lemon, bergamot and tea in the aroma. Tea leaves, bergamot and citrus on the leavy bitter flavor. Herbal bitter finish. The earl grey works out fine in the aroma, but less so in the flavor.

bartlebier (1540) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
¿Bottle/keg? (keg pour, with bottle labels available?) pour@FdB Köln 2014. Massive amount of bergamot and black tea upfront, masking anything else I got from it at the served temperature and pouring size. Hops in taste overwhelmed by again that Earl Grey, one of my favourite teas, that however carries its own dosage of oils and acids, masking more subtle hop oil nuances here I felt. Reminiscent of homemade dryhopped ice tea experiments, with more (&expert) body. Black tea astringent finish, consistent in its approach, just a bit too austere for me.

Not sure who invented this, adding tea to (ipa) brews, but it’s an innovation I certainly dig. Fresh aroma with herbal, leafy, cold tea and light malts all mixing to an appealing and nonstandard mix. Taste is great too, giving you some tannin dryness that accentuated the fresh hops and improve the mouth of feel, especially in the ending. Yum! (33cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

hermanw7 (28) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Aroma: not as much tea as expected, but it’s there. Hops, some orange and other citrus fruits. Appearance: Light amber with a medium white foamy head. Taste: citrus fruits, lots of tea and hops, especially in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, and medium carbonation. Definitely a well balanced IPA!
