The Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta is a heck of a beer. The Earl Grey IPA is a great idea and it does work somewhat. A good hoppy and yeastful beer with a slight afternote of Bergamont tea, Well done!

330ml can from de Caigny Dranken in Essen, Belgium. The beer is yellow to golden colored and has a large and stable white head, with good carbonation. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel malts, and very fruity with fresh hops with notes of grass, flowers, citrus, peaches, spices and tea. The taste is light to medium bodied and light sweet with light caramel notes and goes to light bitter with fresh hops and notes from the aroma. The Earl Grey tea is is well noticable here. The finish is refreshingly dry and a little bitter yet sour.

Appearance is amber, slight cloudiness, a one-finger foamy off-white head. Aroma- bergamot, floral hops, tea, hints of orange and nectarine. Taste- floral hops, orange, pineapple traces, juicy fruit, Earl Grey bergamot runs throughout, hop resin, lingering floral finish. Nicely balanced.

Growler from Liquorland Fitzroy. Pours a deep copper with a mediums sized head. Big aroma of Earl Grey, along with some peach. Taste is a big whack of Earl Grey, a bit fruity, a bit malty, high bitterness. I like the tea there, but Im a tea drinker. Definitely an interesting brew but it also works well. Definitely give it a try if you see this.

ANZUShophunter (657) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2017
From bottle (brewed in Australia) into shaker. Pours a rustic amber with frothy white head and aroma of bergamot and bath salts. An interesting combo of beer and Earl Grey that seems to work and makes for a dry almost soapy finish

Sampled @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. A slightly hazy deep golden beer with a mid sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of tea, Green plants, mild citrusy hops. Taste of green tea, herbs, citrus hops, nice.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2017 Can from Asda. Cloudy, brown, off-white head. Aroma is all citrus and bergamot. Taste is very floral- I don’t like Earl Gray tea but it’s not bad in beer form!

3.5
Maersk (361) - MOLDOVA - NOV 6, 2017
Crystal clear, golden, small fluffy head, a lot of carbonation. Strong sweet hoppy aroma with some tea notes and a bit os candy. Medium body, greatly balanced, gentle but long bitterness in the end. A bit of tea tree in the aftertaste. Good

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 An easy IPA. The Early Grey taste is very distinctive at the end. not that bitter, perfect IPA for starters
