Brooklyn Brewery launches Defender IPA in the UK

5.5% beer will be available on draught and can format

Brooklyn Brewery’s Defender IPA (ABV 5.5%) will be available in UK for the first time from the end of March.

The golden IPA, which features notes of rounded bitter hops, juicy tropical fruit and an incredibly dry finish will be rolled out in draught and 330ml can format. 

The company says: "Defender IPA is the perfect beer for those looking for an original, full flavoured brew. Created around the brewery team’s belief that beer should be balanced and unpretentious.

"Like all Brooklyn Brewery brews, Defender IPA is also designed to pair beautifully with food and is incredibly versatile, pairing well with a huge range of dishes."

Garret Oliver, Brooklyn Brewery’s award-winning Brewmaster, said: "We’re excited to introduce Defender IPA to UK shores for the first time. Especially with the growing interest in IPAs showing no signs of slowing.

"An enduring favourite in the US, Defender IPA is created with the belief that beer should be interesting, delicious, accessible, unpretentious, and downright fun. It has plenty of hop intrigue for aficionados and smoothness for newcomers. A real all-rounder.”
