You can taste the tea big time. Drier, everyday beer. Not to hoppy. Good colour (orange, peach, cloudy) smooth. Really enjoyed the flavour profile. Great beer. Enjoyed this beer on tap at the breweryin Dunham Quebec. Great place to enjoy a beer. Good food and service.

Serving type: on-tap

The two fingers of off-white head that crowns the beer is sticky and thick, leaving plenty of dense patches of lace along the sides of the glass. The body itself is a rich caramel amber tone that has clearly not been through any level of filtration. This looks like a big IPA.

The early grey tea component rests gently at its core with a bit of earthiness mixed in. Guava and lively pine needles lay over top with hand fulls of fresh field berries. There's a really nice floral component to it as well. There's almost a warming quality to the tea character and I love how it develops as time goes on. Although it doesn't pack a big punch in the aroma, there's plenty of complexity to wrap your mind around.

The hop character is less refined in the taste and I think part of it has to do with it foregoing the filtration process. It's grassy and floral with a dense leafiness to it. The herbal tea quality rests on the middle of the tongue but its presence is dimmed by the more biting hop character. The field berries dance around throughout and give off a pleasant sweetness. A dash of biscuit and lingering green bitterness finish things off.

The body falls between light to medium. There's a little bit of creaminess with a classic hop dryness in the finish. I think it could have used a bit more weight to it.

Overall, this is an all around good IPA with a unique twist. I loved the addition of earl grey tea which I found most evident in the aroma. It plays nicely with its fruity qualities. I found the taste and the feel however to be a bit unrefined, impacting its tea quality most. Nonetheless, a solid collaboration and one that leaves me excited for their next IPA of theirs that I have in the fridge.

Although a very generous gift, not a beer balanced to my personal tastes. More of a medicinal tone to the aroma and flavour than I expected, and I find the Earl Grey hard to discern without it's characteristic bergamot? Definitely tea-forward, I just wouldn't have picked out anything other than "black tea" without the other descriptions.

Pours a hazy medium orange with a respectable white head and good retention. Aroma of oranges and tea, although many of the initial medicinal elements are fading as it warms. Good hop citrus notes in the body of the taste, but with a smoky tea and ointment finish that lingers longer than I'd choose. Enjoy the body, but not a beer for which I'd choose a pint.
