COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We hope you enjoy this Stoke IPA. We make it the old fashioned way and never cut corners. Itís brewed using a combination of premium Nelson hops including Pacific Gem, Cascade, Motueka and Styrian Golding, bespoke yeast, 14,000 year old Palesoô water and lightly toasted malt (no artificial additives or colouring). Stoke IPA is tank conditioned over 4 weeks to ensure a smooth caramel sweetness and hangover-free experience.

Pours a hazy copper color. Aroma and taste are light fruits with some bitter hops.

The head is good, the body blond. It smells sweet, hoppy, malty. The taste is sweet, malty, bit hoppy, fruity, bit flowery. Medium, bit boring.

rating from backlog, very normal stuff, medium hops and light malt to back it up. good enough i suppose.

AshtonMcCobb (2119) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2013
33cl bottle from Vino. Appearance - cloudy orange with a slim head which disappears fairly quickly. Nose - honey and cereal, just a touch of citrus. Taste - more of the same but not quite as refreshing as the nose suggests. Some soapiness on top of the honey and malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a similar texture and a clean finish. Overall - a solid and very sessionable IPA.

jamestulloch (1052) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle from Vino Wines. Hazy golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation. Few lacing marks. Aroma of grass and grain. Flavour is light, lemony and grassy - itís more like a slightly hoppy Lager than an IPA. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft carbonation. Bland and boring, but not quite as bad as the previous reviews make out.

Rulymel (91) - SPAIN - SEP 11, 2013
Pale colour with a thin head. Low carbonation. Lightly fruity and hops aroma. Taste is soft fruity and hop without special notes. Watery body. Too poor for the style.

ShaneJ (415) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle at Wellington Airport. Clear darkish-golden, quite muted aroma, some mild grassiness, smelt very "grainy"/"worty", tasted a bit better with some piney hops and sweetish caramel malt. Ok, but nothing special.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Clear, slightly hazy orange coloured body with a bit of a bronze glow and a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of grass, medicine and a hint of stale malt - no hops at all, and a very mild scent for sure. Light-bodied; Grassy and herbal flavours up front with a strong dose of perfumey hops and a little stale malt and alcohol flavours noticeable. Aftertaste shows only stale malt, odd funky notes and no complexity and more importantly - no hops. Overall, a pretty bad offering and nowhere close to an IPA, APA or anything with hops in it. Definitely pass up on this, even if it isnít horribly expensive - itís not worth a single US$. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$3.98 sampled at home in Washington on 20-June-2013.

Not a real IPA. Itís like a reasonable macro lager with a touch of artificial bitterness powder added. I never thought Iíd say this, but, it would probably have been better without the added bitterness.

Was a bit disappointed with this one, hoping it would have more of the hoppiness found in a good IPA, but my first impression was íindustrialí. Vey pleasant on the eye, nice clear ale, but little aroma and very bitter aftertaste. Reminds me of Tui, unfortunately
