COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Stoke Bomber IPA is a daring formulation designed to excite the palate. First comes the aroma of biscuits and stone fruit, followed by flavours of caramel and marmalade blending with spice and hints of pepper. The zesty, lingering finish of this light bodied beer is a celebration of Wai-iti hops, only grown in New Zealand of course.

Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2013
660mL bottle Pours an amber body, reasonable clarity, with a small offwhite head. Subdued aroma; toffee, biscuity malt, some earthy hop. Medium body, moderate carbonation, somewhat oily in texture. Light toffee malts continue on the body, bit of nuttiness, with earthy, woody hop spice. Firm bitterness on a shortish finish. Bit disappointing, certainly didn’t deliver the NZ hop character I was expecting.

Not an American but a kiwi style IPA. Biscuits and stone fruits with a hint of citrus and pepper that finishes with a slight sweet bitter hit. Good beer,

Pyobon (1096) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2013
(Bottle) Cloudy amber with nice dense fine head. Surprisingly little aroma, but pleasant: slightly hoppy. Lovely palate, very smooth and creamy from very fine carbonation. The taste starts with hops overlaying some pleasant, but not oversweet, caramel maltiness. Very nice bitter finish - good prominent hop bitterness, without searing the taste-buds. A good IPA with hops all the way, but not overwhelmed by them.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
Made w/ wai-iti hops, which presumably means "little water" Cloudy amber w thin amber. Fruit nose w light ginger, marmalade, and lots of rich, earthy caramel malt. Rich bitterness collides with earthy crystal malt... The hops lose their aromatic subtlety, but the bitterness lingers well into the finish.
