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!

Det är tio gånger roligare att dricka öl som är gjord med smaken mer än bokslutet i åtanke. Bäskan härskar i Amarillo, men Oppoigårds välvilja i bryggerikonsten väger upp att det skaver lite.

Pyrmir (5528) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours amber with thick orang-ey head. Aroma sweet and very hoppy, grassy/floral. Taste rich and full, hops notes not as dominant as in the aroma. Aftertaste long and nicely bittered.

espenra (994) - Kurland, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
33cl bottle from a friend. Best before 2013-03. Batch A. Orange colour with a big white foamy head. Some carbonation. Aroma is fresh and hoppy. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits and some notes of bread. Flavour is also hoppy and laden with tropical fruits. Some bread in flavour as well. Medium bitterness. Long, lingering aftertaste. A wonderful beer.

AirForceHops (6185) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Draft @ the Ale House, Amesbury, MA. Nose is popping with Amarillo hops. Flavors have a large amount of pale malts upfront followed by citrus fruits and lots of bread malt to make this brew sweet. After the huge hop aroma I was expecting some strong lingering bitterness. Just the opposite, sweet bread malt dominates. Leaning on the fuller side of medium in body. This is a quality drink. Very tasty.

SpringsLicker (3456) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2012
From my Secret Santa 2012 Pours clear gold in color with a tall, three-dimensional off white head. Soft citrus hop aroma. The flavor is well balanced. Light bitterness that goes from the start all the way to the finish. Very solid APA, better than many IPAs.

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle via Santa, thanks fredrik_! Bottle pours a semi clear rose with nice white head. Aroma is very similar to hop slam from memory. Taste is red apple, sweet nectarine, apple peel and some slight bitterness at the end. Pear is very pronounced in the front of the taste as it warms. Really interesting APA that has as much flavor as I’ve ever had from an APA.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Bottle @ Crooked Stave Zwanze Day 2012, sent to me by _angst_. Thanks again, Alex! Pours a fairly clear, dark golden appearance with an off white head. Nose is full of Amarillo hops- grapefruit, mango, pineapple, some resiny notes. Pretty fruity, easy drinking, mango, pineapple, just a bit sticky/resiny flavor. I would love to sit around a pub in Göteborg and chug this with the locals.

marcus (9138) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 4, 2012
On tap at The Trappist. Pours copper with an attractive orange beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a very smooth caramel malt flavor with some fruit and lots of toffee. Nicely balanced with a great hop profile.
