Oxymoron är en vidareutveckling av förra årets Black IPA Easter Edition. Som namnet säger är ölen en motsättning i sig själv, en mörk ljus öl. Humleprofilen motsvarar en IPA men med lätt kropp och mörk stoutaktig färg, fast utan de rostade tonerna. Oxymoron bryggs med Pilsner-, Pale-, Munich-, havre-, råg-, ljus karamell- och mörk karamellmalt. Humlesorterna är Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Columbus, Crystal, Magnum och Simcoe. (Oxymoron is a development of last year’s Black IPA Easter Edition. As the name states the beer is a contradiction in itself, a dark light beer. The hop profile corresponds to an IPA albeit with a light body and a dark, stout-like colour, though without the roasted notes. Oxymoron is brewed with Pilsner, Pale, Munich, oat, rye, and light and dark caramel malts. The hop varieties are Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Colombus, Crystal, Magnum and Simcoe)

Big thanks to Rune for a nice gesture. Your kind words and this great gift made my last day as a student even more memorable. This IPA has an almost black body with a thick, long lasting off white head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, dried fruits, peach and dark chocolate.Thick and smooth mouthfeel. Dry and bitter finish. Beautiful lacings in my shaker glass. The aftertaste is mostly dominated by coffee. I enjoyed this one!

Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun med röd ton och ett fint ljusbrunt skum. Tror att de mängder av olika sorters malt och humle som är i tar ihjäl varandra lite, men barrskog, citrus och lakrits känns. Även i smaken blir det svårt, en mish mash av allt liksom. Kaffet dröjer sig kvar. Inte min typ av öl...

Had this before in an earlier version. Mohawk usually make nice beer and this is no exception. Only that I now know that black IPA isn’t my favourite style, probably The idea is to have the best of two worlds, but no.

330ml 2014 years vintage brown bottle, with a simplistic designed black and white label. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a large tan foamy head with good retention, that when reduced left some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, rye bread and lemon peels. Flavours of grapefruit, rye bread, caramel, lemon peels and a hint of liquorice. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. Overall a great Black IPA, beers brewed with rye suit me perfectly, I think the rye spiciness complements the hops nicely.

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, citrus, choklad, salmiak, grapefrukt, tall, bröd och rostade toner. En frisk och välbalanserd svart IPA. Fruktig, lagom sötma med tydlig beska med smak av grapefrukt och tall.

330 ml bottle sampled in 2012. Close to black body with a foamy beige head. Nice aroma of dark, light roasted malt with pine. Flavor is sweet, light roasted malt, fruity and bitter with pines. Fine body and rather bitter in aftertaste. Very nice.
