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!

Pours a dark, cloudy orange, not at all the color I’m accustomed to from this style. Nose is odd: extremely malty and has a sort of metallic scent to it. Indeed, the flavor is so malty I would never guess this to be an IIPA. There’s just a bit of hop bite on the tale end, but otherwise this seems more like a barley wine than an IIPA. I recently reviewed the Thomas Creek Up the Creek Extreme IIPA and the similarities between that and this are really incredible. I’m a bit disappointed because this is not what I’m looking for in an IIPA. Malt lovers will be pleased, but if you’re a hophead like me, steer clear.

Sells itself as an Imperial IPA but balanced by intense maltyness! Cloudy chocolate coloured beer with a biscuit coloured head. Doesn’t seem like an Imperial IPA! More like a barleywine/Scotch ale hybrid. There is the richness of barleywine along with the briney hops but also the soft chocolate of a Scotch ale. Interesting!

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
A reddish brown ale with a thin reddish moka head. In aroma, herbaceous hops, vinous notes, raisins, very barley wine like, with smooth notes of alcohol and seaweed iodine. In mouth, a classic barley wine with smooth resinous hops, tobacco malts, quite nice and superbly balanced. Wow! Bieropholie import. Jan 1 2011.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with small creamy light tan coloured head. Big malt aromas of dark caramel, toffee and dark fruits offset somewhat by decent tropical fruit and citrus hop aromas. To me the malt backbone definate dominates the nose. Flavours are super sweet thanks to the malt. Decent hop bitterness on the finish. Full mouthfeel. Decent beer but not my favourite DIPA>

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle at a tasting, 15th January 2011. Pours a deep amber, with a small off white head, good lacing. Quite tropical in the aroma to go along with the pine. Bit boozy on the first couple of sips, but soon the tropical fruits start coming out, along with a hint of red berries. Slightly oily in body, nice bitterness at the finish.

Bottle that Jan & Charlotte passed to me at Essen, Kerstbier, Belgique, consumed 25.12.10 Pours hazy dark golden with small off-white head. Very soft in the mouth, lovely hoppy nose, big body & full flavoured with grapefruit infused with a floralness, really floral in taste. There is also an exotic tropical fruitiness flooding through. Good beer. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.8

You find one every now & then that’s just what you wanted & this is it. Probably a bit one sided for some, but for hop heads just fine, Hop Heaven. Big & sweet caramel with hops of pine & citrus. Looks mysterious, even dangerous, and it is. Awesome, awesome.
