almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, - MAR 13, 2012
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.

Resin, pine, sweet, floral hops, citrus fruits. Hazy, dark brown, medium, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. More sweet grain malts, floral hops, bread, citrus fruits, orange, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Quite malty this IPA. Keg at CBR17, Shoreditch.

The_Osprey (9126) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
January 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. As ’Rothhammer Brutal IPA’. Dark orange brown, still, foamy off-white head. Aroma has lots of liquorice, raisin bread, toffee and apple. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is woody liquorice, sugary, more tangy liquorice. OK. (3.2)

3.1
Towey1989 (3262) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Keg at Craft Beer Rising. A murky brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of red berries, dark fruits, caramel, a hint of grass and slight spicy hops. Taste of red berries, dark fruits, caramel, some orange, slight toasted malts, a little sugar and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, fruity, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Typically English, via Chile. Not an IPA in modern standards, like a hoppy premium bitter/amber ale. Bitter finish but not a lot to talk about. Above average.
