Berentsens IPA Bombay er et karakterfullt øl med generøse mengder humle. IPA (India Pale Ale) har navnet sitt etter kolonitiden da det ble behov for et mer humlet og sterkere øl for holdbarhetens skyld, for å tåle sjøreisen fra England til Bombay i India. Ølet passer til rødt kjøtt, vilt og kraftige, modne oster.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of gunnfryd. Pours a clear deep golden with a small white head. A little caramel and subdued hops in the nose. Medium body, caramel and a good hop bite. Not very aromatic though. I wonder what hops. 160213

Bright clear amber beer with a massive pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy. Semi dry with fine carbonation. Light creamy malt, lactose sweet. Touch of caramel. Sweet pine rounds things off to a semi dry finish. A pretty sweet IPA, drinkable though!

Bottle. It’s a clear one, perhaps with a very minor hazy, amber in color and topped by a firm, off-white head of moderate size. The aroma is a tad weak for an IPA I think, definitely not the typical West Coast IPA. Flowers, some grass, canned fruits syrup and a touch of peaches and banana. It’s rather bitter in the mouth, soft on the palate, with nice carbonation. Medium to full body. Pine cones, some syrupy notes and a flowery touch in the flavor. Mostly bitter finish, with some pine cones and sugary maltyness. A fine beer, indeed, but it’s too careful initially, and I wouldn’t mind more body and balance. 130210

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Medium head with medium duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich malt, caramel, notes of alcohol, fruits and some hops. Nice brew but could have used more hops.
