COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, says TAP 180810. Amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: fruity, some grass and nuts, peach candy. Taste: sweet, toffee, fruity, candy, low bitterness. Medium-bodied, above medium carbonation. Tastes nice, but could have been fresher.

laiti (5415) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
60 cl bottle. Rated on 30.8.2008
Aroma has fresh, exotic fruits but it is a bit thin for a IPA. Flavour has the same fruits, but also some toffee-like malt does occur. More APA or EPA than IPA. Refreshing!

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle at Ulla Winblad, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is quite rich with some caramel and a lot of tropical fruit. Pours a medium dark amber with a thick white foam. Taste is a little bitter and quite well balanced, but very very thin allover. More of everything and this beer would have been very pleasant but it feels a bit watered down. Mouthfeel is a bit thin as well, for an IPA this is not the oily thicker texture I am used to.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011
UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 Pours amber with small white head. Smells strongly of caramel, sirop, exotic fruits and butter baked biscuits. The caramel-heavy sweet malt dominates the taste, the hops are mellow and has notes of grapefruit and peach. As an IPA its is rather low on bitterness. 5 or 6 years ago I found this beer challenging. Now I think it’s rather bland. Too sweet and malty for my taste.

0,4 l. bottle from the supermarket. Amber colour with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet with some weak hoppy notes. Taste is light sweet malty with fruity notes. Ends with a mild bitterness, lively carbonation, medium length finish. A nice beer after a long summer day.
