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!

Maybe I’m a bit of a beerpatriot on this one. Oppigårds has made me very happy once again. This is an amazing American Pale Ale from Dalarna(!), Sweden(!).

33cL bottle, courtesy of blomster. Thanks, Christer! Pours a deep, clear golden-orange color; mixed-bubbled off-white head with decent retention and web-like lacing; persistent perimeter of foamy bubbles. Kind of a muted, herbal and minty aroma; a bit of doughy malts at the core; neither as crisp nor as bitter as one might hope; my guess is that this is an older bottle, and yet the description suggests this just came out on February 1st; odd; still, there’s a pleasant hop character here, and the malt core is more than basic sugar or wet malts. Medium body: as in the nose, there’s a rather pleasant hop profile of herbal notes and hints of citrus, but the bitterness is quite lax, probably too lax for the style and for my taste buds; the malt core is quite exposed, and there as some bready and cotton candy esters here that, while pleasant, aren’t necessarily as showcased as well as they could be; relaxed carbonation doesn’t help matters; this is still a rather tasty hop and malt profile, there are some resins here, but the bitterness just isn’t enough to keep me interested or to keep this from coming off as flabby overall. The finish is the most bitter aspect of this beer: herbal and nicely toasty.

OleR (4609) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. A two-finger offwhite head slowly fading to a layer of bubbles. Body is dark amber and shining. Rounded and delicate aroma of tropical, citrussy and floral hops. A subtle caramel scent in addition. Taste is a delicious blend of Amarillo fruitiness and refined caramell sweetness. Very soft and easy on the palate. Light bodied in fact, but not thin. Fruity bitterness lingers in the finish. A very nice one, well-crafted, easy drinkable and utterly sessionable.

Skinnyviking (6383) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
