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.

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

Not much of a nose, not much of a backbone of the hops and a slight bitter finish. Color was golden, clear and minimally carbonated. The body felt thin and light nearing flat.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2012
Bottled. A pale amber beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of flowers, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, flowery and spicy hops, leading to a bitter finish.
