COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hansa IPA er vår versjon av India Pale Ale som først ble brygget på 1700-tallet. Ølet ble brygget med mye humle, som gir den karakteristiske bitterheten, for å holde på kvaliteten under overfart fra England til India. Hansa IPA er en overgjæret Ale, brygget med amerikansk humle for å få frem ølets unike aroma. Ølet har en velbalansert fruktighet og sødme. Og en kraftig humlearoma med god bitterhet.

Strongly bitter for this beer. Moore pale ale than ipa. Decent aroma. For this price a deal in Norway.

Nonshaugen (423) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 4, 2016
50 cl can. Have been drinking this now and then since they first hit the shelves. The quality has dropped considerably since then, mainly due to the changes of the hop types and profile. This can BB sep 16 2016, rated apr 4 2016. Golden orange, medium white head, moderate carbonation, Clear as a whistle. Aroma is dark bread, sweet malts and fruity hops. Mouthfeel is watery, low carbonation, dry aftertaste. Flavours are sweet chewing gum, some fruit, some malts, not a great beer. If Hansa had named it a Pale Ale, it would perhaps pass as such. But IPA? Not at all.

Pours copper colour with long lasting head. Aroma is notes of malt, some hops and faint citrus. Taste is a blend of malt and hops, faint traces of fruit and cultimating in a watery finish. Not much to write home about, even for a store beer. I’d much rather recommend store ipas from for example Nøgne, Nøisom and Ego.

A nice and hoppy session IPA. Of the norwegian mainstream session ipas its the best and a good option at the grocery store.

mariuszek (1094) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Session does not mean watery and this brew definutely misses body and flavour. Some hops in aroma, low bitter finish, nothing in between.

Koelschtrinker (16806) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 4, 2015
Runder, fruchtig nussiger Hopfenantrunk. Deutliche aber noch angenehme Bitterkeit, im Mittelteil etwas trocken. Blumig bitterer, in seiner Intensität nun aber abnehmend. Gut, trotz des kurzen Nachhalls. 11/11/12/11/10/11
