COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Poursclear dark orange with a medium dark off white head that leaves an ok lacing. Aroma of fruits and flowers. Light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness, light sourness. A bit on the dry side this IPA. A good one too.

Ungstrup (29018) - 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.

StilleStorm (637) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2014
DWG; Pours clear, dark golden with a fading off-white head. Nose is malt, tropic fruit, floral and light pepper. Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter and somewhat lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to avarage.

BeerViking (2290) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from Sola Vinmonopolet last year, pours dark amber with a clinging off-white head, plus marmalade and touches of honeydew melon and peach on the nose. Palate is initially rich, with caramel and fruity sweetness countered by very dry bitterness, but it doesn’t last, subsiding fairly rapidly to an acrid bitterness in the finish. Interesting, but not worth the money.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket på Bergstua 28 Mar 13. Gyldenbrun. Pent kremaktig skum med litt lacing. God krydder- og fruktaroma. Mandariner. Smaken i samme retning. Litt mandler. Blir fort tørr & bitter med mange smaksnyanser. Tørket frukt & krydder.

Beertobealive (201) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2013
Little thick head, quickly disappearing. Some spices and caramel/banana aroma. Taste is pour however. No length in mouth apart from some light bitterness. Not my favorite IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPAgutten79 (445) - Skui, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Uklar gylden, klassisk IPAutseende. Mye skum som forsvinner ganske fort. Anonym aroma som har hint av søt tropisk frukt. Noe humle. Smaken er ok, men slår ikke helt ann hos meg. Humle, søt, fruktig og med mild bitterhet. Litt skuffende for å være ærlig. Medium konsistens. Fint å ha testet, men kjøper den ikke igjen.

Bottled, thanks fonefan! Clear golden, mid sized head. Aroma of peach and grapefruit. Fairly sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Plenty of peach and citrus, long bitter finish.

Pretty good beer! Both hoppy and malty and wellbalanced at the same time, but I miss some body and a bit more aftertaste.

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!
