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.

Launched at Gladmat 2012.

Jyrsa (490) - - APR 1, 2016
Bottle from OSL airport tax free. Clear light brown with a strong head. Nose of caramel, blackcurrant (!), malt and something odd, like vegetables. Slightly bitter with same blackcurrant, hay and other citrusy notes. Light body with low carbonation. Ok but by no means stunning.

smmaaren (554) - NORWAY - FEB 21, 2015
33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours hazy copper with almost no head. Maybe too cold... Typiical hoppy citrus flavored ipa. Not too bitter. Good but no cigar.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Red brown and clear with appalingly low foam levels. Strong hoppy aroma which unfortunately is very simple. Tastes mildly of vegetables, like a carbonated mixture of brussel sprouts, peas and broccoli. A quite anonymous IPA.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Peach juice floats on top of wet caramelized cereals, as big bubbles succeed into promoting bitter resins and oranges in the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty amber.
-This may be forgettable, but it’s still drinkable and nicely bitter.
-The caramel malts in this IPA point towards the 80s.
-This seems to have suffered from time or travel. But it’s well within it’s best by date...

Ungstrup (34355) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2014
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel, hops, and citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.
