3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - amber with a nice head.
Nose - citrus with a light bergamot note.
Taste - the bergamot is more pronounced. Citrus through the middle then more earl grey on the finish.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a nice dry finish, though the bergamot makes it a bit soapy.
Overall - not sure this particular combination of hops and tea worked for me. Tea too dominant.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Brewers Droop, Bristol. Explosive orangescent spicy aroma bursts out of a red orange coloured beer making it look and smell very vibrant. Smells like orange liquer. The bergamot flavour is very apparent in the tasting and makes this a very complex but tasty brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: pretty hazy darker gold color, beige head that faded fast
Aroma: tea, coriander, sweet tangerine,
Taste: very bitter throughout but not in the usual way, the tea is very evident, has a caramel malt backbone that is kinda subtle
Palate: lighter mouthfeel, tea aftertaste, lively carbonation
Overall: this is unique, bitter and tea are the dominant aspects, not bad

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Red orange brown, not much head. Tea resin hop aroma. Tea and resin flavour and aftertaste. Tea and beer not a good combination for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with creamy white head. Aroma of perfumey bergamot, grapefruit, orange and grassy hops. Taste of bergamot, tea leaves, citrusy orange, grapefruit and earthy bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture and soft carbonation. A spicy, tea leave finish. A unique take on an IPA, wasn’t sure at first but grown to really enjoy this. Worth a try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A spicy brew, first taste from the Yeastie Boys and I'm not disappointed. The tea flavor isn't as dominant as I would have hoped for, but a essence is picked up. More soft tropical fruit and a nice rounded banana are followed by a solid hit of hop.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml Bottle from Hop Burns & Black, Dulwich. Herbal & tea aroma. A very well balanced beer, lovely Earl Grey and citrus flavours with a lasting taste. Very nice but I imagine it needs to be your thing. If you dig this try the Earl Grey IPA from Marble!

Interesting experiment, the earl grey comes through strongly in both aroma and flavour. Although you wouldn’t want to drink many, it’s a unique twist on the ipa standard.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Powerful aroma - shower gel, green tea and lavendar. Unusual. Flavour of... deodorant sprayed straight in the gob. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. I like strongly flavoured beers, but this is far too intense. As a subtle addition, bergamot and Earl Grey Blue Flower tea could work really nicely, but in this it is incredibly cloying. I could only drink about a quarter of the bottle.
