2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2004 Draught at the brewpub. Not very good IPA, just like Nørrebro Bryghus' other brews it lack the charactaristics of the style. Some hops and malt, but not overwhelming. Very sad example of an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange, clouded. A nice IPA. Quite hoppy and nitter, still nice balance between the fruit taste and the bitter hoppy taste.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Nørrebro Bryghus (only place available). Small head on a hazy orange body that looks like a sunrise! Beautiful! Nose of yeast and oranges. Taste of malt, oranges, yeast, fruit and candied peel. Bitter aftertaste. Very nice and spicy beer!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange, very cloudy colour. A bit sweet for an IPA, but maybe I just prefer the American style? It was balanced by a decent bitterness, but more complexity in the hoppiness would be good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy blond beer. The aroma is full of hops. Surprisingly low bitterness for an IPA. The taste is rather neutral. It needs some more sting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale, pale amber, muddy; no head. Citrus-hops, but sweet at the same time. This is an English IPA with foreign hops. Not bitter, but not sweet neither. OK, but not great, could do with some more hops. Very flat, like a leftover bitter. Overall impression - see above.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite nice IPA. Muddy pale yellow colour, not much head. Very hoppy with hints of somewhat sour in the aroma. Bitter flavour combined with a hint of something spicy. Longlasting biitter aftertaste.
