I’m smiling because you actually never know what it is you’re getting until you get it. I don’t get why it’s an IPA though, there is some more research that I need to make before making bold claims like that, but I guess it has to sit somewhere on the scale of things.
This is a bit of good for what ails me and I enjoyed it a lot. And will again.

Almost non existent head on pouring. Tea is subtle in the aroma, hoppy with "something" a bit different. A lot more tea in the taste, with an almost astringent bitterness. Caramel, tea, citrus, spices and honey flavours. Lingering bitterness.

Tap. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Hazy amber. Thin, persistent, white head. Floral, herby hop. Bready malts. Light funk. Taste is dry, with a lemon sharpness. Lots of body. Finishes dry, funky, and soft bitter.

Looks and smells great, tastes like soap. Judging by the comments, something must have been wrong with the batch.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle; shared with my kiwi pal and Steve from Beer O’Clock show at Ale House; Chelmsford; 3rd January 2015. Bottle bought from the good folks at Hop Burns and Black; Clapham. 33cl bottle as depicted in the picture here.
If you blend earl Grey and mint leaves in a beer then this is what you get. Aroma is tea leaf and mint. Burnt caramel. Some flowers and pine. Taste is the same. Really not a fan even though it had high levels of oxidisation creeping in. Not my kind of beer tbh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours copper brown, very hazy, thin white head that falls down quite fast. Smell of black tea, floral hops, dark fruits, hints of caramel and a good dose of yeast. Moderate sweet, a lot of herbal and tea flavors, the tea is actually very dominant and guids me into the finish wis is almost heavy bitter, also with a lot of tea. Not totally my cup of tea this.... i like it more dilluted ;)

19th December 2014
Very hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crispy. Light pale malts. Vibrant lemon and bergamot. Spicy pine hops. Light dry finish with a lemon spice linger. Punchy and very drinkable and a lot better than the Spoons cask version.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smelling peach iced tea, and a hint of melon. Taste is all tea, tea, tea. I drink exactly 0 tea ever, so my knowledge of particular kinds is lacking, but there’s a fuckload of tea. Quite bitter, but the bitterness clings to the tea flavours, making it something altogether different. I like it.

Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a hazy straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is freshly cut grass, grains, tea laves and citrus peel. Aroma is medium sweet and lightly crisp bitter and dry. Notes of citrus peel, green tea leaves, grapefruit. Finishes lightly dry and citrusy. Overall, ok IPA, decent tea notes
