Pours a pale Amber with medium head and limits lace. Nose is somewhat floral, really seems an English IPA and not American style. Not a big nose, and caramel malt coming through. Not much on the citrus or fruit front at all. Taste is sort of in between a bitter and IPA. Again floral, somewhat bitter but not greatly so, and a slight off flavor. Overall, just so-so.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into 350ml beer glass. Poured a cloudy, light bronze with a some head that lasted quite well.

On the nose Earl grey tea is evident immediately with some lemon and grapefruit as well. Quite nice,

Palate is nice and smooth with the tea coming through nicely and working quite well. Mild hop bitterness at the end and quite well balanced.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer - light refreshing and well balanced.

It should be noted that the bottle I had was brewed by Brewdog in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Overall, a great beer and highly recommended.

Mouth is quite full and satisfying

Smells of Citra and tea

My first beer from New Zealand. Bought at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. The beer pours with a dark brown-gold appearance, little to no head or lacing for that matter. Interesting spiced aromas; could smell some herbs, tea, cloves, and citrus. Good, acidic taste with a sharp lemon zeal mixed with an Earl Grey tea flavor. Great, crisp body that helps bring out the citrus and acidic flavors. Overall, great aromas and taste.

33cl bottle. Pours a semi-opaque orange with a small white head. Smells of caramel, roses, bergamot, peaches and yeast. The taste is sweet and perfumey, with notes of roses and berries (not sure which, though) and feint bergamot. Incredible beer, unlike anything I have ever tried before.

Disclaimer: I am a big fan of Earl Grey tea, which is made with bergamot oil
