English: Nørrebro Bryghus’s interpretation of the classic India Pale Ale. A powerful beer brewed exclusively from English Marris Otter malt which gives a deep and an intense malt character. Plenty of fruity ale aromas supplemented by bold notes of classic English aroma hops added after fermentation (dry hopping).
Big body, high bitterness and some sweetness characterize this golden 6.5 % ABV beer.

Orange colour with small head. The aroma is dominated by hops. The taste has a good balance of malt and hops, with notes of toffee.

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled. Pale amber. Strong citrus and toffee aroma. Sweet and malty, the hop presence gets more obvious towards the finish, which holds piney bitterness.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Cloudy amber color. Maybe something’s wrong, as there is a sour note in the nose, and a sour bitterness in the taste.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2004
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy yellow. I was obviously unlucky sampling the poorest examples of Bryghuset. This felt like a weissbier with an overwhelming sourness. Big disappointment, considering the style.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2007 (on tap)The color is very, very orange this time and the brew has a odd sour/sweet aftertaste. This brew is sure to divide the drinkers in likers and not-likers. For my part I like the fact that Nørrebro Bryghus this time has taken a step away from the tendese to make too-sweet-for-my-liking beer. It´s not the best US IPA I´ve had, but it´s refreshing and that´s no. 1 for an IPA.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 On-tap, served in small, conical sample glass. Orange/gold color, slightly cloudy. Assertive, (grassily) hoppy aroma. Impressive, well-hopped taste w/ a crisp bite and a nice, long, finish. Easy to drink. A very drinkable, satisfying IPA, this is one of the better brews from Nørrebro Bryghus.
