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!

Prufrockstar (820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle at Brouwer’s. Pours amber with minimal head and spotty lacing. Aged double ipa ftw -- ain’t nothin’ gonna stop my ticking. Aroma - caramel, still some hops, and the old familiar aged barleywine "prune" (or whatever you want to call it). Full body, and the hops are still surprisingly potent; earthy, herbal, bitter with a big caramel backbone. Sort of an oldish hoppy barleywine. Full body, with a little bit of copper.

mcberko (6000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, lots of caramel, and toffee. Flavour brings out lots of caramel, resinous hops still there from all the years, and toffee. Drinks like more of a really hoppy barley wine, with some slight oxidation. Really wonderful stuff - wouldn’t have thought to age a IIPA, but this works.

Aroma is caramel, dry malts and spicy hops. The flavor is caramel, citrus, grapefruit and a mix of alcohol and bitter in the finish.

angelkostvo (562) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 12, 2014
Ruby colour, no head. Aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruits, very much like barley wine. Taste is medium bitter a bit sweet. Medium body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation. Something in between a barley wine and Imperial IPA.

Bottle on 02/27/2011. Slightly hazy body with a small off white head. Sweet floral and citrus aroma with lots of caramel. Sweet caramel fruit and hop flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle (1PT 4.3FL OZ.) Pours cloudy amber brown with a tight foamy sudsy khaki head that fades to a film and soapy collar. Aroma has nice faded hops and sugar caramel malt some toffee pitted dried fruit and sweet bread. Taste is dulled bitter faded hops with sugar caramel toffee and bread dark dried fruit, this is tasting very nice for being 3 plus years old. Palate is medium to full with a chalky dry finish. This is nice has aged into a solid strong ale or even a Barley wine of sorts.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of fig newtons, caramel, toffee, nutty maltiness and dried fruits. Medium body. More like an American Strong Ale at this point - still quite good.

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?
