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.

Slightly hoppy aroma. Dark amber colour. Malty biscuity, flavour. Not much head to speak of. Enjoyable aftertaste. A great pale ale that could make a good session beer. Really enjoyable!!!!

Great bottle. Man sized and man looking to match. Lovely amber looking with nice white head. Caramel with some zesty hops. Lovely and would have again.

650ml brown bottle. Bronzed amber pour with good sized off white head. Aromas of butterscotch and fruity hops (oranges, peaches) with a hint of peppery spices. Nice well integrated bittersweet flavour profile with a decent lingering hop bitterness at the end. Light-medium body with a clean mouthfeel and easy sessionability. Enjoyed this a lot.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Pours a nice deep and cloudy copper colour with a small, but quality-like white head. Some dry wood, oak and spruce and a hint of caramel on the nose. Flavour is also som wood, together with biscuits and some carrot acctually. Nice bitterness in the finish, not too much. The mouthfeel is soft, and about medium carbonation. Well balanced beer, I really liked, the taste and the balance being the most intruiging side of it.

nice amber colour, lots of malt and some stonefruit in the aroma which follows through into flavour, definitely a good beer.

mkel07 (3091) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2012
650ml bottle. Lots of light tan foam with aromas of hops and peaches.. Heavy in the glass with a copper almost red colour. Nice smooth flavour that goes down easy.

Oakes (12234) - 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.

Maris (964) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2012
From a 650ml bottle on 4/6/2012. Pours a clear dark golden with a medium head. Has a moderate aroma of spices, caramel and a touch of fruit. The flavour starts with a big dollop of caramel and biscuity malt and moves onto to some sweet citrus fruits (particularly orange). As stated on the bottle, there is some spice and pepper to be found in this decently hoppy brew. Slightly unusual and quite enjoyable.
