4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours amber-orange with a thick white head. Aroma is a mingling of citrusy hops and bergamot. Taste is Earl Grey upfront with hoppy citrus following. Some pleasant lingering bitterness and bergamot. Body is on the lighter side with a decent amount of carbonation. You have to like Earl Grey to get into this beer but if you do, the combination with citrusy hops works very well. I love Earl Grey and I love this beer.

some amazing beers tonight. this had two predominant flavours - black tea and apricots. thankfully the tea took the back seat to provide a base to the citrus and other malty goodness. utterly fantastic.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Golden-light orange body. Moderate sized white head. Distinctively brewed with earl grey tea. The bergamot orange is unmistakable and is accented by a perfume-like floral profile and some grapefruit. Flavor is similar, soft and pleasant. Medium to light bodied, appropriate carbonation, lightly bitter finish. A great change of pace and well done offering.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 330ml bottle on 10/10/2012.Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a big fluffy white head. The aroma is dominated by strong Earl Grey tea with a light fruity background. In the mouth, there is both sweet and tart citrus fruit, a hint of grapefruit, and heaps more Bergamot orange/Earl Grey tea flavour. The bitterness is medium to high, and sticks around well after it goes down the hatch. This is an extremely unusual, impressive and delightful brew.

300 ml bottle. Aroma is pretty amazing, lemon fudge, Turkish delight, rose, citrus marmalade with a sweet creamy butter finish. What the heck! Who would have thought? Taste is like rosehip, then black tea, finishes with malty sweetness and slight bitter aftertaste. Citrus flavours floating in there. Pretty unusual.

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.

So much earl grey, can't tell from the aroma whether it's tea or beer. If you like earl grey and IPA this is definitely for you, lots of American hops.
