Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lovers dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one youll remember.

Hoppy, citrus aroma. Murky gold appearance. Pure white head. Balanced hop flavor, pleasant bitterness not too overpowering which allows for more citrus, and malt character to come through. Medium finish. Medium body. Overall calm IPA nothing too overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Quite a strong beer, but no signs of alcohol in taste. Full body, balanced taste, not too sweet and not too bitter. Very strong white head. Overall very solid balanced beer, very good.

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 12, 2017
355 ml bottle imported by Cerveceria Chile. Found on an Easter Island supermarket. Currently the only IPA available here. Pours a clear orange/amber color with a small fizzy white head that diminishes quickly and leaves a small lacing. Aroma is hoppy with mainly herbal, piney and citrusy notes. Lemongrass, cedar, pine cones, resin, lime and lemon peel are really clear. Taste is quite bitter, dry with flavors of ginger, quinine, acid citrus, lemon verbena and lemon. At times you get small orange-ish hints that come from the interaction of bitterness hops and the malts. Some sweetness gets through with slight warming. Light to medium bodied (for an IPA of this gravity at least), high lively carbonation. Leaves a dry feeling in the mouth after finishing it. Well crafted. Glad we have this on Easter Island.

Beautifuly balanced and very easy to drink for a "strong hop" beer. Perhaps the most unique tasting IPA I have ever encountered. I absolutly love this beer.Easliey in my top 3 IPAs of all time.

On tap: Nice citrusy aroma and taste but not very hoppy for an IPA. Orange zest and pine are the dominate flavors, but there is a very slight sulfur aftertaste. Im sure this was much better before InBev took over.

2016 catch up - Bottle at home - A typical, and nice, American IPA. Lots of hops, flavour and a great mouthfeel.

BOD 12/26/16. Pours clear with a golden hue coupled with a touch of amber. Outstanding head volume, very good lacing and normal retention. Vey good nose that is a bit subdued. Notes of fruit permeate over a slightly sweet base of malt - both biscuit and cracker. Light rind rolls underneath an orange note with hints of pineapple. Medium body with a nice slick oily texture that imparts a pseudo-creaminess on the palate. World class carbonation / body balance. The middle is almost rollicking with effervescence that open the flavors up. The finish is a nice finely bubbled tingle that tickles the tongue. The flavor is very good but lacks complexity versus an American IPA. Versus an English IPA standard, it is outstanding. Like the nose, the base has a subtle contrasting sweetness. Unlike the nose, the malt is solely biscuit oriented and provides a nice nutty flavor from three quarters in through the finish. Bitterness is mild for an English variant, light for an American one. This is a hop flavor oriented IPA versus a bitter bomb. Hop flavors presented are a combination of herbal and very light fruit. The sweet background yields a mango impression not detected in the nose. The finish is slightly dry as the sweetness fades coupled with a subtle clove note.

DavyK (76) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
big hoppy US-craft beer aroma, quickly gets bitter and malty in the palate. Slightly old fashioned and overly bitter, I often think. A grower, though...it settles in after a few mouthfuls.

WillemsUrenkel (1789) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 25, 2017
0,355 l bottle from Just in Beer, Groningen for 3,20 . Pours out red golden, little bit unclear with a small white head. Malty, hop and some tropical fruit on the nose. Taste starts hopy, crisp and fresh. Increasing bitterness. Mid fruity, malt and some almonds or nuts. Mid hopy bitterness with citrus in the aftertaste. Nice one.

thejackpacker (379) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle at restaurant in Groningen. A hugely hoppy beer, the hops kinda take over very dramatically. A very classic American craft beer taste, tasty, nothing extraordinary however.

Colchaude (15) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
From a 473ml can. No big suprises here, classic english IPA taste and aroma. It does the job and its not bad but it misses a bit of balance IMO.
