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.

This is one of those beers that youíd be a bit disappointed to miss out on the last bottle of, but possibly not one that would be your first choice. So a C- level beer that "could try harder" it does what it says on the label, there isnít a pretence in the description that you agree with because you donít get it, but because it is what i is.

Bomber. Pours muddy brown amber with average-small off-white head and tight lace. Aromas of sweet malts, light grassy tropical citrus hop notes, fig, caramel, pitted fruit and a touch of biscuit and toast. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. The sweetness is well balanced with a generous bitterness, not so much flavour but the finish is lingering light bitterness/flavour and a touch salty and minerally. Nice malty character and unique NZ hop notes.

Tad disappointed with this. I was expecting a more hop driven beer but this was much more malt driven in flavour and aroma. Still a nice beer but not was I expected.

Jado (573) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2012
Billed as a Kiwi Pale Ale, but Iím not sure what that means. I was expecting something like an APA but turns out to be more of an English style. Deep amber pour with a thin head. Grain and a floral hints on the nose. Plenty of malt in the mouth, with biscuit and bread. Some herbal and light bitterness comes through from the hops. Body is a bit thin and the palate is short. Not too bad, but not what I was expecting.

650ml bottle. The description on the bottle is exactly how this beer smelt and tasted. An enjoyable beer.
