Marble Brewery – Earl Grey IPA – 6.8%
Another stunning beer from the Marble Brewery. This being the superb Earl Grey IPA at a respectable 6.8%.
The De-cap aroma of this beer gives a strong floral impression of earthy grapefruit and oranges. The taste is like a fruity citrus, strong IPA with a defined bitter orange aftertaste of hops & pith. The Earl Grey presence is well defined and certainly not wishy washy. I drink Earl Grey tea every day and didn’t expect the extent of this flavour! How on earth does Marble get this much flavour into a beer? The colour is a golden amber and hides the alcohol presence like a seasoned pro. Head retention is perfect and the carbonation is ideal, but perhaps below average for the style. Full bodied, fruity and astounding. Best British IPA in ages. Very imaginative.
