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!

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 16, 2012
In short: A textbook example of a caramelized fruity resinous IPA. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase from a Swedish Systembolaget
The look: Clear deep golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: The medium intensity hoppy nose is fruity hops (mangos, grapefruits, lemon zest, apricots) with hops resin. Taste has a typical but always pleasant toasted caramelized malts, very clean body, not too much caramel, fresh baguette bready sensation. And of course a generous amount of fresh fruity hops (mangos, grapefruits, lemon zest, apricots) with medium resinous character and also some green pine-needles. Bitterness level is pretty high and it is a bit sticky/resinous, tasty but not super-refreshing. This is once again a Swedish textbook example of the style, and that’s how I’ll remember my pub crawling and bottle shopping in Sweden, lots of expertly brewed quality clean beers, textbook examples that do not “try anything”. Very good beer even though I’ve probably had 50 very similar ones before. Another good beer from Oppigårds, one of the most popular micro in Swedish, a country where 4 out of 5 people make up of vast majority of the population.

laiti (5956) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Draught @ Ølhus København
Aroma has fruity hops, some fruit juice and mango. Flavour is hoppy with fruit juice and alcohol. Finishes unpleasant with hayish tones, glue and minerals. Nice, but the dry finish ruins the show.

Keg (0lhus Copenhagen, Helsinki)
Sweet aroma, a littl stodgy, not getting the amarillo I like. Bold orange, almost no head. WTF in the mouth. Sticky water with a bit of fizz?!? some malts, sweetish a bit grainy. Bit of husky bitterness (think cetennial). Finish is pleasantly bitter, dry and resiny, like the crust round the rim of an old witches cauldron. that’s the best bit. smelling ain’t so good, and the taste is just plain meh, but once you’re past that there’s something to reward you.. Expected better of Oppigords, they’re historically very solid brewers.

Strong citruslike aroma not surprisingly when only Amarillo hops used both in the brew and dry hopping. Taste is well balanced though still a bit sweet with a lightly bitter finish.
