Brutal hops is a cruel battle where the hops are the winners. Eucaliptus resin and cannabis in the nose with a brutal bitterness. With 100% german malts and a mix of english hops.

Bottle. Brownish coloured beer with a strong head. The aroma is hopped with good maltiness, and the flavour is very bitter with plenty of rich malty roastedness. Overall a nice strong IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy deep amber - brown beer!! Residual pale tan head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has modest fine carbonation. The malts bring dark toffee and a trace of cream. Mild tang. Ripe fruits, touch of prune. Smooth finish. A rich and tasty number but it’s not very pale and not very hoppy!

LazyPyro (372) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
350ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown colour with a minimal tan head. Aroma is a bit funky, dusty, caramel and dark malt, some hops. Taste is also quite malty but the hops come through giving it a very bitter finish, with pine, herbs, alcohol too. Medium bodied, soft carbonation makes it seem a little flat though. Interesting one, nice but not what I was expecting for an IPA.

Fukito (1003) - Santiago, CHILE - SEP 13, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy copper with golden hues and a creamy lasting off white head. Aroma is funky with some fruity esthers. Flavor is a slight of funk with birthday cake and some sweet malt. Medium palate. Odd but nice to drink more of an English strong ale than an IPA

Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne
Hazy dark amber color, small compact head. Caramelly brew, a bit dusty, solid, but the hops are not expressive, maybe too old.

AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 7, 2015
resin, citrus, caramel, amber, white foam, frothy, hazy, medium sweetness, very bitter, light body, average carbonation, bitter, It’s an heavy IPA with a lot of buttering hops and lacks a little of aroma hopping. It’s not to sweet which it’s a characteristic I like in IPA. So a good drinkable IPA but cas be more hopped on the aroma side.

Cevas (3) - CHILE - DEC 19, 2014 does not count
primera IPA fabricada en Chile. con esta cerveza Rothhammer marca un importante hito en la fabricación de cerveza en Chile, dando un golpe a la industria local y enseñando que se pueden fabricar cervezas de calidad en el país.

thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle from Cerveceria Imporio, Santiago. Copper brown with a yellowish head. Caramel, smoked malts, piney hop nose. In the mouth quite astringently bitter, despite hints of smoked caramel. Not a favourite.

Dark, kind of brownish molasses color... Its supposed to be a "pale" ale. Smells of star anise, pineapple, mango... Sort of a little bit of sweetness on the palate and the earthy bitterness, that balanced its sweetness. Not a IPA fan, but this is very enjoyable
