Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Dark golden with small head. Aroma is strong earl Grey, ie lemony and floral with a bit of actual tea thrown in. Taste is sweet and tangy, slight dryness with a hum on the tongue. Lovely smooth oily mouthfeel, with mild carbonation. Really really nice, good good double good.

Frothy white head. Lots of tea and floral hops in the nose. Modestly bitter mouth, fairly malty backbone. Decent little IPA but finish is a bit too perfumy with too much earl grey tea. Still not bad.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear deep gold moving into light amber. Zero head. Earl Grey tea is all over the nose with some ruby red grapefruit, grass and floral notes as well. Taste is similar: very earl grey with some lemon zest and grapefruit bitterness. Good bitterness. Body is super heavy with very little carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Vibrant cloudy amber beer with a very strong frothy white head. The aroma is hopped and fruity with orange peel, and the flavour is deeply bitter and hopped with a touch of fruity grapefruit but without the citrusness. Overall a nice beer, too complicate for my palate to distinguish all the flavours though.

Keg at Spitfire. Pours clear amber. Nose is herbs, fruits, citrus, tea. Tastes fruits, tea, herbs, caramel. In a way I dont like tea in beer but this is quite good although the tea is quite dominant.
