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!

Pour at Zwanzee Day ’12. Thanks Aaron! Pour is clear orange with a small white head. Grapefruit, bread, biscuit, and orange in the aroma. Taste is light cardboard, grapefruit peel, citrus, cereal, and bread with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad but seems a bit old.

In short: A textbook example of a caramelized fruity resinous IPA. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase from a Swedish Systembolaget
The look: Clear deep golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: The medium intensity hoppy nose is fruity hops (mangos, grapefruits, lemon zest, apricots) with hops resin. Taste has a typical but always pleasant toasted caramelized malts, very clean body, not too much caramel, fresh baguette bready sensation. And of course a generous amount of fresh fruity hops (mangos, grapefruits, lemon zest, apricots) with medium resinous character and also some green pine-needles. Bitterness level is pretty high and it is a bit sticky/resinous, tasty but not super-refreshing. This is once again a Swedish textbook example of the style, and that’s how I’ll remember my pub crawling and bottle shopping in Sweden, lots of expertly brewed quality clean beers, textbook examples that do not “try anything”. Very good beer even though I’ve probably had 50 very similar ones before. Another good beer from Oppigårds, one of the most popular micro in Swedish, a country where 4 out of 5 people make up of vast majority of the population.

Senap (468) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2012
Bra beska. Fin kopparfärg. Karaktäristisk smak. En modern svensk klassiker! Ett säkert köp för en lyckad ölkväll! Efter en kväll på SMÖF 2012 var detta en avslutning som knäckte det mesta på mässan!

Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2012
Courtesy of Cunningham, huge thanx maaaaaan!!!
The beer in the glass is light amber colored with a flat, fine white head. It smells citrus-hoppy, slightly spicy, fruity and sweet in the background. Starts with floral hops, combined with lots of herbal aroma, a sweet fruitiness and a slightly bitter spiciness. The middle part is hoppy and fruity, with lots of grapefruit, orange and some pine. Goes into a hoppy-bitter, very fruity finish with some pinewood and herbal notes!

Abrakarl (386) - SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
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 (9004) - 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 (2967) - 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 (732) - 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!

A perfect brew. Clean clean. Good foam retention, massive amarillo nose and perfect balanced bitterness.
