COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nils Oscar Hop Yard IPA introducerade först på välsorterade krogar. Den blev snabbt så populär och eftertraktad att vi bestämde oss för att göra den tillgänglig även på Systembolaget. Det är en kraftig India Pale Ale och är genomgående smaksatt på amerikanskt vis där vi inspirerats av den amerikanska nybyggarandan – få kopplingar till namnet India Pale Ale med andra ord. India Pale Ale kom till redan på 1700-talet och skeppades mellan England och Indien, där av namnet India Pale Ale. Det sägs också att den höga andelen humle och den höga alkoholhalten var nödvändig för den halvårslånga resan från England till Indien eftersom den hade en konserverande effekt. Tur för oss att resan tog tid – Nils Oscar Hop Yard IPA är idag oerhört uppskattat. FÖR DEN INTRESSERADE Nils Oscar Hop Yard IPA är ett överjäst öl med ganska hög alkoholhalt. Vidare är det en kraftig ale brygd med ljust malt och karamellmalt, samt humlad med sorterna Cascade, Simcoe, Pacific Gem, Nelson Sauvin, och Amarillo, samt generöst torrhumlad med Amarillo, Citra och Nelson Sauvin. Doften bjuder en rik flora av olika tropiska frukter som ananas, persika, dadlar och en rik ton av karamell. Smaken är kraftig, rik av fruktiga humletoner och har en balanserande lätt söt maltkaraktär. Eftersmaken är kraftigt besk.

Hopmaestro (1234) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma of lychees, grapefruits with a rich, malty backbone breaking through. The taste that comes from its slightly oily texture, is heavy and yet well balanced. Sweet tropical fruits and dry bitterness fight together all the way with the bitterness as the sole winner in the end after a long, sweaty fight. Really tasty brew this one.

Lite aroma i forhold til tørrhumlingen som er beskrevet. God bitterhet. Kunne vært mer av alt, men en god ipa.

Erasmus_ro (2458) - Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle, BBE 01/08/14. Pours an auburn amber with a good-sized, beige head. Aroma is caramelly and piney, somewhat citrusy. Taste is a fairly strong caramel, but there’s pine and resin too. A light citrus and grapefruit. Full and fairly strongly carbonated. Well-executed, but the hops could be stronger, even if it is close to BBE date. As it warms up, the toffee, caramel and even nuttiness really starts to dominate. Better drink cold.

tfredvik (1720) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Crystal clear, medium amber body with an off-white head that leaves some remnants on the glass. Rather strong aroma that is surprisingly malty. I get lots of sweet caramel, with generic fruits in the back, traces of tropical fruits and hints of overripe orange. Strong flavour of caramel in front, moderate generic fruity notes, a good amount of citrus, both grapefruit and orange, and finally I get some resin in the long-lasting, rather heavy bitter finish. Despite the moderate to light sweet initial taste the texture is rather dry. Mid-bodied and moderate carbonation. A nice beer, but calling this malt bomb "Hop Yard IPA" is very misleading. Even if the beer was far from fresh.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

abemorsten (3508) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget Strömstad. Pours a misty orange golden body with a small tanned head. Pleasant dried fruits, marmelade and hoppy pollen on the nose. Hoppy leafy bitter and a caramel sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Earthy notes towards the end and a dry tongue. Mellow and well balanced. Pretty good stuff that I´d gladly have again..
