We hope you enjoy this Stoke IPA. We make it the old fashioned way and never cut corners. It’s brewed using a combination of premium Nelson hops including Pacific Gem, Cascade, Motueka and Styrian Golding, bespoke yeast, 14,000 year old Paleso™ 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.

Luvystypotables (1562) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2016
A malty aroma with a hint of caramel. Pours a pale gold color with a thin white head. A malty taste with a watery feel and a dry malt finish.

maekchu (3364) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light fruity nose, prunes, bread. Light copper color, little head. Thin prunes, raisins, grain, and light bittering. Thin-medium body. Not so good. Flavors seem quite off.

Bottled sample from mlcc...Enjoyed the 14,000 year old water in spite of its age. lots of flavor here. Would like to try some more from this brewery.

YigSvartka (274) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Translucent, nearly opaue muddy orange hue containing no head. Interesting aromatics consisting of caramel malt, mild roast and chocolate, as well as citrus and spruce. Light bodied. Absolutely appalling taste. Malt is present, but lacking in flavour that’s present in the scent. Mildly bitter hops are present as well, but they lack any flavour as well. Bland malt leading to slight bitterness with no fruity notes.

blipp (7904) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy and lightly sweet malts, generic hoppy bitterness, and not a lot of aromatics or any real distinguishable hop character. Not bad, but not that good either.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a hazy copper colour with small white head. Aroma is overripe tropical fruits. Taste is fruity with a little bitterness. Decent beer.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2015 oh my fucking god. This is what I get for not having my phone with me and going against better judgement. aaaand i think its green glass. OOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! The description says they used trademarked 14,000 year old water. What the hell is that. Anyway. At least it leans to the English side of things like they claim. Caramel, grains, bit of veggie taste, light acidic quality after 10 sips in 20 seconds. Not terrible but painful because I just dropped 17$ and I have 5 more. I also see that they claim that I will have a ’hangover-free experience’. Well, duh, because after 1 you’ll lose motivation to drink another.

***Update, 14 mins later..***
Ok, I lied. I’m drinking another one.

DuffMan (9284) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy light orange-amber. Vegetal stewy wort, a bit chewy, mildly bitter finish. Like poor home brew. I can’t believe I wasted money on a sixer of this.

gramity (1600) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
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.

Not very good at all. Light grainy malts, a bit skunky and cereal esque. Boring hop with a light grapefruit, citrus, acidic and vegetal. Just unimpresive and a bit off putting in the flavour.
