COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: North Bridge Extreme, was a present from the brewers to Brewmaster Anders on the first anniversary of Nørrebro Bryghus. Inspired by the Southwest Californian triple IPA’s, it is brewed with British ale malts, adjusted with several colour malts and spiced with extreme amounts of hops.
A dark golden extremely bitter ale (9,5 % ABV) with a prominent hop aroma. Should be enjoyed as the final beer of the evening – Your taste buds will no longer function after drinking this ale!

This has been retired? I must be rather lucky to have a bottle sitting in front of me ready to be reviewed then aren’t I? Appears rather ruby amber in colour, like a caramelised red toffee colour. There is a spider-like lace and head of marshmallowy cream colour. A slight haze in the body, but this doesn’t detract from the visual enjoyment. The nose is of pungent American hops with red gum, spruce and herbaceous grasses. It also has gorgeously floral characters provided by the malt: hibiscus, rose petals as well as candisugar, toffee, rich autumnal fruits and rosehips. In the mouth there is that more than generous malt character and a full, spicy, puckering bitterness. It has a beautiful body (cue Monica Belucci metaphor) like a voluptuous, smouldering Italian actress that I have been in love with for years. I thought she was stunning in The Apartment and Lady Malena. It is full, sexy and does something to your lips. You have to keep licking them as well as the inside of your mouth. The finish is lengthy and ought to be combined with generous applause. I wonder why this was retired? I wish it wasn’t. Just gorgeous... it’s what abv you say?

Dufter af rug og sødt af malt bolcher. Både frisk og humlet og slik sød. Ikke typisk Ipa duft. Flot gullig skum som hænger for hårdt. Smager slik sød og vinøs. Tør og let bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Suttree for the trade! Extremely cloudy caramel brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, raisin, earth, very light pine and grass hops. Taste is sweet fruits and malts with a decent bitterness. Medium bodied, spicy, a little dry. Strange for an IPA modeled after a California IPA, its more like a hoppy English strong ale or barley wine. Good, and unique within the style in my experience, but I’m not crazy about it compared to those who inspired it.

Flere ganger fra fat på Nørrebro Bryghus: første gang jeg prøvde den i bakhagen i juni-06 ble jeg hekta og siden har den vært et fast innslag på mine ølrunder i Dronningens by. Bare MÅ ha den. Humlehoder liker dette, men vitamininnholdet på 9,5% tilsier at den desidert ikke bør kveldens første.

Hazy orange red pour with a creamy, light tan head. Excellent retention. Aroma is much maltier than I was expecting - Caramel, earthy, nutty, hint of citrus. Sweet up front, bittersweet mid-palate and finishes dry and bitter. Medium-full body, soft carbonation, moderate alcohol warmth.

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Hoppy, malty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone, not what I expect in an IPA. It pours a somewhat hazy cola brown with a fairly thick pale tan head that leaves substantial lacing. Hoppy flavor has subtle notes of caramel and grapefruit, and a whisper of fruity sweetness that offsets the bitter and sour tastes. Smooth flavor has decent body and a fair amount of fizz and life, leaving a hoppy and caramel undertone. Extreme? Maybe not, but recommended to IPA lovers.

From an old tasting note: orange colour with a decent head. Big fruity/ hoppy aroma with a big malted presence. Flavourful brew having pine cones, leafy bitterness citrus and a malted backbone. very boozy tasting as well. I found this really pleasing and memorable.

Amber in color with off-white head. Malty sweet with a balanced hop aroma. Overall balanced with an excellent hop finish. Denmark visit ’11

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle, shared @ Freakin’ Frog. Cloudy medium amber brown without much of a head. A heavily malty IPA, very bready and hearty, leathery dryness, with a bitter tannic hop structure. Not for everyone, but Iiked it.

bottled, an old rating from the prague xmas beer markets in ’08 and tasted again since. inviting golden with a beige head; grapefruity, bready aroma; medicinal in a good way, vanilla bean, plenty of bitterness. a bit of extra oomph, classy stuff
