Marble Brewery Earl Grey IPA (6.8%)

Earl Grey IPAOriginally brewed in collaboration with Brouwerij Emelisse this IPA brewed with Earl Grey tea smells of oranges and farmyards.
The beer is nice and lively in my glass, orange with a big fluffy head.
I’ve had several bad experiences with Marble’s 750ml offerings, but this one is just right, and taking a big mouthful I’m given a large slice of honey glazed pastry, a handful of mixed peppercorns and then a large swig of vanilla infused black tea before the hops take hold.
And the hops take hold alright.
They’re green and fresh as a daisy, dandelion leaf bitter, lemon and pear juice washing around orchard woodiness and herbal foliage.
The finish is surprisingly warm and comforting while remaining sharp and dry.
Bitter, crisp and refreshing, Earl Grey IPA is a winner.
