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.

I am writing this after having tasted this beer many times. Dark brown, with a very creamy head that goes fast though, that’s fine. On the nose hops dominate all you can imagine. This undoubtedly has to do with cannabis, maybe some eucalyptus, and a little lemon. Nevertheless, I can see the barley and cereals. This is wonderful. Finally a good beer that does not have that sticky sweetness of microbrews. I repeat, a great Chilean.

Fukito (976) - 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.

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 (5155) - 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.

inkubuzz (15) - CHILE - AUG 1, 2013
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

felipeesteban (3) - Copiapo, CHILE - JUL 1, 2013 does not count
IPA??? para nada, tiene demasiado sabor a maltas, claramente desbalanceada, el lúpulo no tiene un agradable aroma y se mezcla de mala manera con el aroma de las maltas. no tomaría otra.

gringoroll (62) - viña del mar, CHILE - APR 25, 2013
Pours deep molasses with a persistent off white head. Aroma is deep and complex, pine, hops, hops, hops, eucalyptus and grass. Long lasting finish, bitter but smooth, delicious. Fairly thin but very lively and well carbonated. Good I.P.A. with strong character.
