Every man and his dog has an IPA out these days. I really wish brewers would put more effort into making a decent lager. Tuatara Helles is still the only really good lager in the country that I'm aware of. anyway, Stoke have recently put out their IPA. And while I'm normally a fan of Stoke, - their Stoke gold is one of the best beers around for the price, Stoke Dark is growing on me and their Rochdale Cider is a step or 3 above most other ciders in NZ, I have to say, of their IPA, I am not a fan. Heavy on bitterness, low on flavour. Then again, it may grow on me, we shall see.
