Salvador Brewing Co. | Iron Hand NE IPA

"The marching troops... the belts, the boots, the wood, the leather, the stick and the shield... The same old fears, the same old crimes" - Iron Hand. To the ones that through life's destiny, were thrown into the battle field, we pay our homage with this New England IPA, using the Motueka, El Dorado and Amarillo hops.

  • Beer: Iron Hand NE IPA
  • Style: New England IPA (21B. Specialty IPA: New England IPA)
  • ABV: 7%
  • IBU: 60
  • Brewery:
  • Look: orange color, turbid, with a good white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
  • Aroma: fruity notes are really present in the foreground, reminding mango, mostly. In the background, resinous notes can be noticed.
  • Taste: its taste follows the aroma closely, bringing mango and orange notes in the foreground and, in the background, resinous notes. A light herbal presence, reminding rosemary and sage.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, medium-high carbonation and a dry but short finish;
  • Overall: Really good New England IPA. Falls behind other Salvador’s beer of the same style, but a really nice beer anyway.
