Mash Gang X Tripping Animals – Stank Drank Hazy IPA ~ 440ml Can
Mash Gang X Tripping Animals – Stank Drank is a Mash Gang Drop Special once it’s gone it’s gone!
This beer aims to push the limits of what a 0.5% beer does whilst still retaining session friendly experience.
Made as a Colab with Tripping Animals for the infamous (well infamous if you live up here in the North) Hop City, a beast of a beer festival held at Northern Monk Refectory in Leeds, May 2023.
Tripping Animals have a huge reputation here for big rippin’ DIPAS and I don’t wanna let them down. So it’s been every trick in the book to get here.
For the dry hop, we utilised YCH 301 Frozen Fresh Hops Cryro Hops®
A part of the Yakima Chief Hops Elite Product Trial program. Citra, but not as you know it.
Paired up with one of my favourite hops HBC 630 as well as, yet more trial runs HBC368 & HBC 1019 – These highly experimental new test strains are very high in tropical notes, unusually caramelised banana.
There are loads of great reviews on Untappd for this Colab but this one from Erjk just about sums it up!
“Stone fruity, a tad creamy up top. Dank in the middle, a sprinkle of citrus & lemongrass. With a big bitterness in the tail, a surprising amount for an AF”
Mash Gang changing stuff.….
….From a start-up in lockdown to becoming one of the most important brands in the AF beer market, they make an amazing core range then comes the drop(s)…..
Mash Gang has brewed beers from lagers and pales to sours & stouts they just push flavours and mouth feel to a whole new level. When the drops have dropped and they go out of stock that’s it! so buy them when they are in stock. No amount of begging will get Reign in Blood back in stock so get used to it and try what is out there before that is gone and you’re moaning about not having had time to try it!
Surprisingly they run their business through the Japanese model of Kaizen, which translates as change for the better and continuous improvement. They are focused on slow, sustained growth. This is why they wanted to spend the early years of this business working on a solid foundation where you build up trust with consumers that they always deliver a high-quality product, and that they are always relentlessly innovating.

They say they are never satisfied with what we do!
Furthermore, no single recipe stays the same, and just because they contract brew, that doesn’t mean they don’t have an eye on quality. Everything they do is around the quality of the beer…. enough said, the only way to really appreciate these guys is to taste their beers…..
All the Mash Gang beers are Non-Alcoholic & never above 0.5% ABV, thus I stock them as Alcohol Free.
