COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Brøckhouse India Pale Ale er en meget kraftigt humlet overgæret øl, brygget på almindelig dansk pilsner-, karamel- og Münchnermalt. Specialmaltene tilfører øllet en smule restsødme, som afbalancerer den kraftige humlesmag. Alen er brygget med tre forskellige humletyper for at få et mere kompleks smagsbillede: De engelske Northern Brewer og Fuggle samt den amerikanske Cascade. Brøckhouse India Pale Ale har et forholdsvis lavt indhold af kulsyre, fordi kulsyren ellers nemt overskygger de mange finere smagskomponenter i øllet. Bør serveres ved 10-12 grader.

English: Brøckhouse India Pale Ale is a very powerful top fermented ale brewed from ordinary pilsners malt, caramel- and münchners malt. The use of specialty malts adds a bit of sweetness to the ale and hence balancing the forceful hop flavour. The ale has been brewed with three kinds of hops in order to achieve a more complex palate. These are the British Northern Brewer and Fuggles along with the American Cascade. Brøckhouse India Pale Ale has a relatively low CO2 level not to cloak the variety of taste comportments in the ale. The ale should be served at 10-12 degrees celsius.

Bottle. Exp. Date 2006. Olddies but goddies. Small head. Golden hazy. More malty than hop aromas for this exp brew. Great taste and body with slight bitterness and some sweet finish. Probably the taste after a long trip to bombay. Low carbonation as from the start. Still drinkable yeahhh.

20-DEC-2009, bottle @home. Experiment!!! Will this drink at all? The lable says drink before 19-NOV-2006. That is more than 3 years ago! I know the story about IPA, and the long journey to India, but there is a signaficant difference between surviving a journey to India, and not just surviving 3 years in my "beer cellar", but also still be a pleasure to drink. Some years ago, Brøckhouse and not least this brewed turned the danish beer scene around. This was beer of the year in the Danish Beer Enthusiast (DØE) (I cannot remember when). It has been a while since I tried this last - probably more than 3 years. So let’s see how this turns out. I open the bottle, and the beer bursts out of the bottle. Not a good sign. I have never seen that in a Brøckhouse IPA. I pour some in my glass, and at first it looks beautifull orange with very nice almost white head. But then I see the sediments floating around. Not exactly a nice sight, but I will not deduct the appearance score because of this. I think that would be unfair, so a perfect 5 for appearance. I stick my nose in the glass, and Wauw, it is still alive. Lovely nose. Not as hoppy as I would expect in an IPA, but quite malty together with the hops. Very flowery, quite yeasty. Taste is wonderfull charamel, bitter, grapes, pines, and some sweetness. OK carbonation, light bodied. I guess that the hop-taste has faded, whereas the malts have stayed leaving the beer with another profile than originally. I really like this beer. There are certain signs of the age, but overall it is far from dead, and still a pleasure to drink. That is quite a surprise. Not a very strong beer for aging, but nevertheless it survived.

500 ml bottle. Yellowish amber. Hazy. Tall white head. High carbonation level. Citrusy floral hops. Medium-bodied. Quite a bit of malts. Note really very bitter and the sweet malts show through. Nice IPA:

Even though these guys went out of buiseness you can still be lucky to find some of their beers around. If ound a few and brought em back to the cellar. I really have had a lot from this brewerie over the years - but have never rated one. Today I´ll have to make up for that. The pour is dark amber with an high foamy head. The nose is malty with dark hoppy notes along with some almonds and some blooming stuff from the cascade. The taste is nice and fresh - even though you can tell that it wasn´t hopped yeasterday. It has a nice creamy mouthfeel and leaves you with a calm bitterness. IThe malt taste is up front together with some fruits and marzipan. In the long run I guess it can be a bit too much but still it taste nice - and is a good memory.
