fresh malty aroma with citrus and elder flowers, littel sour with a lot of bitter hops and some citrus in the flavor, RIP
My first IPA ever. I loved it back then, but now, it doesn´t taste of much. Gubihumle (609) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Flaske. Farven er bronze med en hvid skumkrone. Dufter stærkt af humle og således smager den også (hvad den jo også skal). En rigtig god IPA TorbenJensen (1546) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2015
Wonderful, rich and white foam. Smells clearly hops. As expected, the taste is also dominated by hops, but also a citrus flavor pressing. Hop bitterness is aligned and provide rich, but also round and soft feeling. An IPA tastes typically British and not as brash as many American IPA’s. Again Brøckhouse committed a great work.

Bottle. Exp. Date 2006. Olddies but goddies. Small head. Golden hazy. More malty than hop aromas for this exp brew. Great taste and body with slight bitterness and some sweet finish. Probably the taste after a long trip to bombay. Low carbonation as from the start. Still drinkable yeahhh. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2011
Old rating: Bottle. Light amber colour. Powerful hoppy aroma. Bitter flavor, and lots of citrus hopps. yummy.

Hazy dark golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet fruity and hoppy. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Finish is bitter and dry. This was my first IPA with cascade and I loved it. 170705 EHSRanders (2081) - Tjele, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2010

moderat malty,moderat hoppy,amber, hazy, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long finish, too old but you can not tast it. TimE (6067) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2010
Golden color. Piney and citrusy, but not alot of backbone and flavors came and went quickly. Bitterness was muted. Not bad. jesperhammer (4874) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2009
20-DEC-2009, bottle @home.
Will this drink at all? The lable says drink before 19-NOV-2006. That is more than 3 years ago! I know the story about IPA, and the long journey to India, but there is a signaficant difference between surviving a journey to India, and not just surviving 3 years in my "beer cellar", but also still be a pleasure to drink.
Some years ago, Brøckhouse and not least this brewed turned the danish beer scene around. This was beer of the year in the Danish Beer Enthusiast (DØE) (I cannot remember when).
It has been a while since I tried this last - probably more than 3 years.
So let’s see how this turns out.
I open the bottle, and the beer bursts out of the bottle. Not a good sign. I have never seen that in a Brøckhouse IPA. I pour some in my glass, and at first it looks beautifull orange with very nice almost white head. But then I see the sediments floating around. Not exactly a nice sight, but I will not deduct the appearance score because of this. I think that would be unfair, so a perfect 5 for appearance.
I stick my nose in the glass, and Wauw, it is still alive. Lovely nose. Not as hoppy as I would expect in an IPA, but quite malty together with the hops. Very flowery, quite yeasty.
Taste is wonderfull charamel, bitter, grapes, pines, and some sweetness.
OK carbonation, light bodied.
I guess that the hop-taste has faded, whereas the malts have stayed leaving the beer with another profile than originally.
I really like this beer. There are certain signs of the age, but overall it is far from dead, and still a pleasure to drink. That is quite a surprise. Not a very strong beer for aging, but nevertheless it survived.
