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.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Can from Bergen Rimi. Bright copper amber skimmed with white. Aroma of treacle draped tinned peach; beeswax, pollen, sticky sweet resins. Intensely floral to the point of soapiness with a punchy hit of pine and resin beneath. Tomato stem and pot pourri burps. It would be unthinkable for Hansa’s English equivalent to put a beer this good in 500ml tins on supermarket shelves. A bit like Banks’s Wetherspoons take on Devils Backbone but much better. Deeply Californian. Getting a bit of a taste for these (Norwegian) west coast IPAs. 737315

metalspice (194) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2014
fin sitrusduft med litt vanilje sammen med. Fin bitterhet i smaken som er fruktig og god, men litt utvannet mot slutten. Behagelig oljete munnfølelse.

Average IPA. Suffer from the low alcohol per cent. Could have been more hoppy. Nice colour and foam.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Fruity and sweet IPA with a nice and fat tail of bitterness. Pretty standard, but a lot of flavour for the modest price, and also very good on tap.
