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!

suprchunk (2160) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Thanks to konstifik for including this as an extra. Pours a golden honey color. Big white head that quickly fades and leaves a little bit of lacing. Big hop aroma. Citrusy and a bit of a malt aroma. Big hop taste and a well balanced bitterness. Malty flavor mixed in as well. Nice sweet citrus mouth. Very good example of an APA. And from Sweden to boot.

pours dark amber with high frizzy and quite thick brownish head. For being a single hop it has very good citrus, bready and malty aroma. The typical oppigårds hay aromas is also very present. There is a distinct bitterness present. Quite a lot being and APA. It isFills the mouth well with it’s bity and fruity flavours. Ending is a bit abrupt and watery. Overall a very very good APA.

Tap at Churchkey. Opaque copper pour with a smallish white head. Nose of fantastic orange peel, lemongrass, wheat, pine, and pink grapefruit. Flavor is more muddled but quite smooth, with increased malt balance and some grassy hops. Medium body, with a smooth finish. Very nice.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011
Äntligen får jag prova den. Lite orolig dock efter att ha sett att bäst före datum inte ligger långt bort. Är den fortfarande tillräckligt färskt? Bärnstensfärgad, stort fluffigt skum som långsamt lägger sig. doft av tropiska frukter och tall barr. Ganska fyllig maltkropp men sedan massor av frisk tropisk frukt, citrus, tallbarr, lätt och ganska kort efterbeska. Mycket välbalanserad IPA men kanske har udden gått ur den.

Ktwse (1954) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2011
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 One of the best Swedes available at Systembolaget. Pours light amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and clearly amarillo. Lots of pine, citrus, grass, tropical fruits and with a clear pungent touch. Taste is bitter from start to finish. This is not a very complex beer - but then again it never pretended to be. It’s straightforward hoppy goodness, with loads of amarillo from start to dry hopped finish. And that finish is looong, and bitter. Body is light with fairly soft carbonation. This is a great beer, from start to finish.
