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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle. A nice enough beer, but not really that hoppy. Sweet barley malt character, with a subtle hit of citric floral hops in the finish. Very drinkable, but not complex or interesting.

Flaska från SB, ölprovning Nils Oscar vs. Eskilstuna, Nerikes Ölsällskap. Fruktig doft; ananas, mango. Fyllig kropp. Knäckig i smaken, en del kola, granskott, kåda. Jämn beska, inte farlig. Fruktigheten näst intill frånvarande i smaken i jämförelse med doften.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 22/10/2015, at Molotow, 20150724, omhper will decide if this is a new beer or just a rebranded Hop Yard IPA) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had fruitiness, needles and citricness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, grass, pine, exotic fruits, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A decent hoppy brew but too musty.

Holmen1 (4471) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
Flaske delt med Einar, påskeferien-15: klar oransjegylden med kort skum. En riktig god ipa hvor aroma og smak har lite av et floralt preg med gress i tillegg til grapefrukt, fersken og bitter appelsinmarmelade. Fint karbonert, og behagelig bitterhet i god kombinasjon med maltkroppen gjør den svært lett å helle over drøvelen. Ganske tørr, og vitamininnholdet er elegant tilbaketrukket. God.
