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.

For a mass produced Norwegian beer nice to finally get an IPA versus pilsner. I guess the 4.7% limit for non wine monopoly beer limits this beer’s character. Reminds me of US based session beers. Pricey as all Norwegian beers are but if I Norway and supermarket shopping this is my go to beer.

Clear dark yellow, white foam head. Nice hoppy aroma and surprisingly nice bitter taste, lasting aftertaste. A good beer. (Oslo 201706)

Strongly bitter for this beer. Moore pale ale than ipa. Decent aroma. For this price a deal in Norway.

Tjomleif (284) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
A good pale ale here. A nice foodbeer. It’s probobly filtered. Overall surprised of Hansa anyhow.

Nonshaugen (681) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 4, 2016
50 cl can. Have been drinking this now and then since they first hit the shelves. The quality has dropped considerably since then, mainly due to the changes of the hop types and profile. This can BB sep 16 2016, rated apr 4 2016. Golden orange, medium white head, moderate carbonation, Clear as a whistle. Aroma is dark bread, sweet malts and fruity hops. Mouthfeel is watery, low carbonation, dry aftertaste. Flavours are sweet chewing gum, some fruit, some malts, not a great beer. If Hansa had named it a Pale Ale, it would perhaps pass as such. But IPA? Not at all.
