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.

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.

Humlehode (94) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Pours golden and very clear with white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, citrus. Slightly watery due to low alcohol content, but surprisingly good for an industrial low abv IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berlinoise2go (620) - NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
Can (50cl). Clear, deep golden colour. Half-inch white fine-bubbled head, good retention, leaves uneven lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus, pineapple, pine, grain. Medium/light body, average carbonation. Taste is decently balanced upfront, fairly bitter, moderately sweet with a citrus zest acidity/dryness. The taste ’tapers’ away towards a thin and one-dimensional bitter finish.

Gyllen brun farge med luftig hvitt skum. Lukter tydelig humle og grapefrukt. Smaken preges også av humle og noe sødme. Noe oljete. Humlebitter avslutning som varer. Denne overrasket meg.

aleksander9 (472) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Clear light caramel with small white head. Loads of fresh hop aromas, but no complexity. Aroma is grass, green hops, grapefruit and citrus. Sessionable palate. Aftertaste is Dry, wet hop, water and a light bitter finish. Overall: Very interesting. Well brewed! Lacks the complexity of craft IPAs, but wins in overall easy drinking. Would buy a six pack for a party.
