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.

33cl. Bottle. Trade with Enjoyit. Pours clear dark golden with a creamy white head and lacings. Sweet grassy and hoppy nose and flavor with plenty of grass, peach and caramel. Unfortunatly a bit of metal. Medium and smooth. Very dry and bitter end.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle, 7.3%. OK grassy hop aroma, slightly caramelly. Almost clear grey golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off with a rather high bitterness, very clean, though. Hint of caramel in the finish. Very late hop bite.

mcberko (13505) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of vegetal notes, some herbal hops, and a thin malt backbone -- doesn’t smell so invigorating. Flavour is very dry more elegant than the nose suggests, with herbal hops, some resin and pine, and dry biscuity malts. A little too vegetal for me, but still refreshing and a solid IPA. Decent stuff.

Deep orange, small keggy head. Stodgy sweet bready and grainy aroma, some treacle to the sugars. Certainly fruity hops too, but in that messy overloaded grunge way Fizzy keggy palate, sugary and nettly retronnasals. Big bold taste, no subtlety at all, no details, just copycat over-the top hops. I feel like I’ve had this a hundred times before, and very few of them were interesting, this is certainly no exception. However, with all the sugar, the alcohol’s well hidden, and the hops are biting enough that the sugar’s kept reasonably in check. Finish is very bitter, a touch herby and even plant-mattery, heading towards hay and grass.

imdownthepub (12919) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Bottled, 330ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Gold with white head. Nicely citrusy and quite drying, good hop character, lemony with a background biscuit malt. Lasting on the palate, the only downside is the heavy CO2 level. Pretty decent.
