3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this beer on tap in New Zealand a while back and liked it a lot, but this review is based on a 330 ml bottle purchased and consumed in the U.S.
The beer pours with a slightly hazy, copper colored body. The white head is semi-durable and leaves patterned lacing.
Aroma: surprised to find a detectable note of tea in the largely floral aroma.
Flavor: surprised to find some tea flavors that blended nicely with the base IPA. I think both the tea nd the hops contribute the very floral flavoring. The aftertaste carries a long-lasting. distinctive note of Earl Grey tea with subtle, floral hops. The hop load and, more so, the bitterness, are low for a purportedly American style IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at the Cambridge Blue, Cambridge. Dark gold with a huge white head. Tea, vanilla, light citrus, potpourri, cotton. Slightly musty. Full spicy taste with sweetness leading the initial sip. Bitterness follows for a long balanced finish which is simultaneously floral, savoury and spiced. More sourness and musty flavours in the aftertaste, like the last teabag in the box. Incredible bordering on magical.

Bottle at Gnarly Barley, Orlando. Interesting aroma of sweet orange marmalade and faint black tea. Hazy bronze under patchy white and a bubbly white collar. Flavour is dry bitterness, almost woody as in a Belgian IPA, followed by earl grey tea-orange and apricot accents. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp.
