My new favourite IPA!!’ Must try will not be disappointed
8 Bit IPA is a very pleasantest craft beer that has an initial hit of hops but leaves you with a sweet balanced after taste, making it a smooth drink.
Cool new design & format ... same solid IPA. I will say though, I reckon 16bit is actually easier drinking.
Just a low-fi IPA with a hi-fi satisfaction level on the walk home. Long workdays are suddenly ok.
8 Bit IPA by Stockade Brewing Co. Ordered a couple Stockade beers into work and boy I’m glad I did! Pours a nice hazy orange and golden tinge with a thin head. Aromatics are composed of citrus fruits, mainly orange and lemon. Taste follows suit, with a generous hit of citrus, a nice touch of pine and a slight but pleasant sweetness given off by the malt. Bitterness lingers on the tongue a little but doesn’t overpower the citrus hops. You get a nice fizzy mouthfeel and each sip goes down a treat! Although it didn’t blow me away, the 8 Bit is a well-balanced, well hopped and drinkable IPA. Rating 7.5/10
The beer was an easy decision. @stockadebrewco 8 Bit IPA has made the move to tins, and while I'm not completely sold on the can art (I was a big fan of the old labels) it's nice to see the beer itself hasn't missed a beat. It's still the well-hopped West Coaster that's made it a go-to IPA for the last few years.
