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!

daje (2609) - NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2011 On tap at Ölrepubliken. Amber gold with some red color, thick foamy white head. Grassy aroma with a small amount of grain and grapes. Taste of caramel malt, grass and citrus fruits. Missing something in the finish, but still a good beer!

stouby (3822) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2011

Mad_Ferret (661) - SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2011 Draught. Amber, clear, very smooth fluffy creamy off white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine, flowery and a slight tart fruitiness. Really nice. Taste is hoppy and fruity. Peach, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, caramel, pine, resin. Very light sweetness and a big dry bitterness. Body is medium to big, carbonation is medium. Nice in every way.

ClubGonzo (4235) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2010
On tap @ Nabokjelleren (Naboen), Bergen. Clear, deep orange body, medium foamy top. Nose is strong vanilla tones with hints of citrus, honey and spruce. Taste is quite original, starting off with a distinct grassy, grapefruit-like bitterness followed by some malty tones with notes of nougat. Or something a bit similar, at least. Traces of herbs - is it oregano? - in the aftertaste. A bit strange, and the various flavors seem to bounce into each other rather than compose anything substantial. Very different from other Amarillo-style IPAs I’ve had, and although this is an APA it’s still kinda weird. Not too bad, but definitely not my style.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2010
Dark yellow with a large creamy off white head. A good bunch of lacing. Aroma is way fresh, loads of hops, and a spicy note that I can’t pin down. A bit of candied apple. Apricots or pineapple. Tropical fruits at least. Flavour is well balanced. Very harmonic until the very bitter, long finish takes over. Medium bodied, sparkly carb, but not fizzy. This was really nice, wish I had access to this fresh whenever.

SirLimpsalot (2361) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2010
Smakmessig är den lite lenare än Celebration. Humlesmaken är mer diskret, och tyvärr tycker jag att även frukterna i doften inte kommer lika bra fram i smaken. Eftersmaken är aning besk, men även denna tycker jag är ganska trevlig.

@Mondial de la Bière 2010, Strasbourg - golden-amber colour with a little head retention; rich and fresh aroma of orange peel and grapefruit; medium-bodied and pretty tasty; a fair carbonation and very bitter; long bitter fruity finish with hints of caramel - balanced

Skvader (115) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2010
An intoxicating aroma of flowers and grass. The taste is a refreshening balance of citrus, apples, with some hop bitterness and subtle maltyness. Aftertaste has nutty characters. Overall a very pleasant experience of a beer

Beer4000 (4615) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2010
On tap @ Patricks. Amber body with a small off-white head. Nice citric aroma with peaches, grapefruit and some pine. Flavor is quite light malty with lots of citric and a fine balanced bitterness. Not particular complex, but a really nice thirst-quencher.
