Danish: Nørrebro Bryghus’ fortolkning af alle ale-elskeres favorit – India Pale Ale. En kraftig øl, brygget udelukkende på engelsk Marris Otter malt, som giver en dyb og intens maltkarakter. Masser af frugtige ale aromaer suppleres af intense indslag af klassiske engelske aromahumler, som er tilsat efter gæringen. Stor fylde, bitterhed og sødme præger denne øl.
Bombay Pale Ale er en ganske kraftig og lidt sødlig øl, som passer fortrinligt til krydret og stærk mad, hvor sødme og styrke kan pakke den pikante fornemmelse fint ind. Eksempelvis thailandsk, mexicansk og indisk mad. Dog anbefales det ikke at drikke øllet til alt for lette retter – retter uden særlig intensitet i smagen – da øllets bitterhed og fylde godt kan overdøve maden.
