Stopclock is a West Coast-style IPA that is bursting with bold and intense hop aromas, making it a must-try for any hop lover. The beer’s name reflects the experience of savouring every sip as if time is standing still.

Upon opening the can, the aroma of resinous hops fills the air. The first sip brings a rush of bold and chewy marmalade flavours, which are quickly followed by pungent citrus notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and satisfying, with just the right amount of carbonation to enhance the flavours.

As the beer finishes, a zesty bittersweet flavour lingers on the tongue, leaving a pleasant tingling sensation that begs for another sip. The piney resin bite is a signature of West Coast-style IPAs and is especially pronounced in Stopclock, giving the beer a distinctive and memorable character.

Overall, Stopclock is a well-crafted and satisfying IPA that delivers on its promise of big bold hop aromas and a resinous bite. It is a great beer to enjoy on its own or paired with spicy or bold-flavoured foods. If you’re a fan of West Coast IPAs or just looking for a beer with bold flavours and aromas, Stopclock is definitely worth a try.
