Brooklyn Brewery is bringing a new "fun and unpretentious" brew to the UK market.

Defender IPA (5.5 per cent ABV) will be available in 330ml cans from the end of March.

The golden IPA is described as featuring notes of rounded bitter hops, juicy tropicsal fruit and "an incredibly dry" finish.

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."
