COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Det är nu sju år sedan vi började höja temperaturen i vörtpannan för första gången. Under dessa år har vi lärt oss av misstag och av vetgirig envishet. I denna jubileumsöl testar vi amarillohumlen en gång till. Första gången var för ett år sedan då vi hade ett tillfälligt sommaröl på fat som hette Summer Twist. Nu är det bara amarillo humle som kontinuerligt humlats under senare delen av koket. Vi har även torrhumlat med amarillo. Doft och smak är mer bärigt fruktig än citrusfruktig som blir resultatet med centennial och cascade humling. Amarillo kommer oxå från USA men som vi upplever det skiljer sig markant från de humlesorter vi normalt har arbetat med hittills. Ölets alkohol (5,9%) och restsötma bär tydligt fram humlesmakerna. Färgen är kopparfärgad och maltgivan innehåller även cirak 15 procent vetemalt vilket framkallar en tydlig och utdragen beska. Beskan är 50 IBU vilket är ganska mycket men karktäristiskt för öltypen som vi kallar amerikansk pale ale men i gränslandet till en amerikansk india pale ale. Detta öl kommer ut 1 februari 2010 på Systembolaget under namnet Oppigårds Amarillo Spring!

Very strong citrus, pines, elder hop aroma. Nothing subtle here and thats how I like it. After it has been still for a while, the aroma dies a bit and the fruit goes away. Classy beer and usually beer that tastes this good is stronger. Bitterness and sweetness nicely balanced.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Pale amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is a little bit fruity and spicy. A nice bright spicy hoppiness with a touch of herbal/peppery fruit. Grapefruit and other tropical character. Fresh hoppiness with just a touch of soft malt character. Very clean bitterness along with a touch of herbal flavour. This hop has changed so much over the years, but it’s pretty damn tasty in this brew.

BOLTZ7555 (2935) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Acquired via trade with _angst_...thanks Alex! Beautiful golden tangerine pour with loads of 24 karat and a tightly packed ivory crown. Fragrant citrus, freshly cut grass, earthy, and with a touch of floral. Mouth puckering tart grapefruit, just squeezed orange juice, and lemon zest in flavor. Again get some depth from the dank, dusty hops. Just enough honey-baked biscuit for balance. Medium mouthfeel. Love the assertiveness of this one despite its lower ABV. Very well done!

CanCrusher (721) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Clear copper colour with small beige head, that slowly sits into a nice crown. Aroma is very pleasant - sweety/bitter. Something sweet like strawberries, bubble gum, flowers, caramel and bitter grass, hops, grapefruits. Bitter aroma is in minority. Taste is not sweet at all. It’s moderate bitter to heavy bitter in the aftertaste. Beer with medium body, dry texture and soft carbonation. Excellent!

Swans (128) - FRANCE - OCT 12, 2012
A perfect brew. Clean clean. Good foam retention, massive amarillo nose and perfect balanced bitterness.

MikeKeller (906) - Kemi, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, Haparanda. Beautiful, a bit hazy, amber beer with white head. Very nice sweet malty and citric hoppy aroma. Taste has sweet caramel malts, citric fruits and is moderately bitter too. A bit oily texture and light/medium body, nice balance. Easy to drink and very refreshing!

mzaar (1924) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2012
Förvånansvärt blek (och nu jämför jag med andra APAs) arom; bär och grape, men förhållandevis svagt. Betydligt fylligare och "mer" smak, där beskan är framträdande. Exotiska frukter, röda bär och svagt av sherry. Skön oljig munkänsla efteråt.

Rune (8928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2012
330ml bottle carried back from Systembolaget Luleå by Gaute. Shared with Finn during a rating session. Slightly hazy, amber coloured body. Off-white head with lots of bubbles. Dotted spots on the glassware. Malt-fruity smell with hints of pine. Taste of mild, red oranges mixed with juicy malts. Bittersweet finish. Medium bodied. Satisfying (Tromsø, 11.09.2012).

Finn (4642) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2012
Flaske 0,33l. Spandert av og delt med Rune under ratesammenkomst hos ham 11 Sep 12. Gyldenbrun. Høyt kremaktig skum som klistrer seg til glasset. God fruktaroma. Smaken er søt & fruktig. God - men blir litt ensformig.

Good, hoppy, very hoppy. However I feel this beer is a tad overrated. It lacks a good head and the aroma is nothing special. But a great taste, intense and hoppy. I like it!
