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!

Clear orange beer with big white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has fructosey sweet tropical fruits, pineapple and pine. Flavor is resinous bitter and caramelly malty. Medium full and medium carbonated palate. Finishes with medium bitterness with aftertastes of slight saltiness, pineapple, resin and caramelly sweetness. A solid APA with the classic Amarillo pineapple flavor.

bartlebier (1718) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2014
33cl bottle shared with and courtesy of hugi, danke! BB SEP14. Strange, apparently intentional herbal and vegetable aromas of particularly celery, wet bark, some plastic and cheese. Taste verges into slightly metallic simcoe and herbal territory on a rather thin palate. Not getting all that much amarillo here. Hm.

330 ml bottle @ home.May 15, 2014. Beer bought @ "Systembolaget Charlottenberg", Sweden. Beer from a large wine glass. Copper in color with a small beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma is hop,citrus,pine and some floral tones. Taste is a bit thin and weak, but it has a bitter bite and finish. Ok beer, but i am not convinced.To little fruit and malt taste to be a winner.

jojjet (1) - lund, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2014 does not count
33 cl flaska. Den här ölen har en, något svag, doft av mango och citrus. Bärnstensfärgad med ett vitt skum. Smak av humle och blommig citrus. Eftersmaken är en mycket bra balanserad bitterhet. Både kroppen och kolsyran är lite för tunn.

Nice golden colour with thick lasting white head. Smells hops. The taste is rather hoppy too and the palate is soft. I wouldn’t call it my favourite IPA but definitely one to consider. Overall approved!

aleigator (220) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from rlgk, thank you! Sunny yellow color with a decent head. Floral aroma, grassy, with fruity orange. Flavor is defined by orange and citrus peel, with a decent maltiness, which evokes no signs of being sweet, but adds an enjoyable, underlyling complexity. Actually not too bitter either, but bitterness is recognizable, still, not as present as the fruit aromas. Fruits stay on the palate for a longer while, especially orange, along with an enjoyable, subtle bitterness. Easy drinkable but not boring at all, overall impression of the beer is very convincing, it is very balanced and still got a convincing character.

Bottle at home, 29th March 14, imported from Sweden this week. Stunning beer, crystal clear, copper colour, aroma, floral hops and some strong grains, nice. Palate is perfect. Taste is grainy, orange slightly sweet, great and highly drinkable liquid
