This is the second in a range of Ølfabrikken special ales.
Starting with the rich and slightly sweet malt profile of a Belgian triple we have added a hop charge every five minutes for full duration of the boil - each hop charge 100 grams larger than the previous one. The result is an immensely bitter ale - a 100 IBU’s of course.
Ølfabrikken 100 gram IPA is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers.

Light copper color, medium bodied, creamy smooth palate, great lacing. Actually, not overly hoppy, but a great sweet malt that includes some nice apricot notes and citrus aromas. TOo bad you could drink this like water, it’s a bit expensive!

bp (892) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle: pours a cloudy brownish-orange with a frothy white head, aroma is hoppy, citrus and some other smell that I can’t really place, taste is surprisingly mellow, malty and sweet. There is a bit of bitterness in the finish but overall a mellow and balanced DIPA. Pretty good.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - AUG 12, 2008
Dark amber under a creamy lasting & lacing beige head. Very strong and complex hop profile over the American palette, inviting. Quite malty and fruity at the first swallow, then it explodes in a resinous very drying bitter end.

nearbeer (4921) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 25, 2008
650 ml. Hazy dark copper with a small, tries-to-last head. Molasses, caramel, resin, citrus and chocolate aromas. Flavor is all that plus some oak wood, walnut and light alcohol. Near medium body is watery, smooth and dryish with slight chest-warming alcohol.

Thanks Crushinator. Cloudy yellow with a wonderful head. US hop aroma but European hop taste. A good bitterness, this is well hopped. The caramel is not so noticable and it served to create balance. Lots of lines of lace. A refreshing IPA. Oh its a DIPA, even better, quite drinkable then for its style.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Gothenburg. Orange color with an off-white head. Aroma of hops, grape, sweet malt, exotic fruit and grass. The taste is hoppy, but not extreme. Notes of grape, pine, caramel, strawberries, exotic fruit, grass and a bit of alcohol. Hoppy, but also very sweet and malty. Creamy and full bodied.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium foamy off-white head. Hoppy pine, citrus, and floral aroma. Sweet well balanced malt and hop flavor. Big grapefruit finish. Very good!

Bottle. Now that I know it’s retired I’m glad I picked up more than 1 of these. Pours a hazy amber orange with a small off white head. Aroma is strong and full of hops, spanning the array from herbal to citrus. Flavor comes in shockingly sweet after such a lovely aroma. Malt laced with honey along with caramel, pineapple, and citrus. Mouthfeel can only be described as sticky. Since I won’t likely find anymore of these we’ll see how the remaining bottles hold up so I’ll save one for a while. Good DIPA though it seems to me to need more bitterness to offset a sticky sweetness to be truly outstanding.
