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.

Tap @ Oliver Twist. Orange amber, reasonable head. Grain resin aroma. Sweet corn and tropical fruit flavour. Leafy bitter aftertaste. Good and interesting pale ale.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Clear golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, herbal notes into a bit of citrus, more pine, grassy notes come through, slight fruit. Taste was a mix of grass, herbs, some floral hops into a bit of biscuit, bread into more orange peel, citrus, some earth, finishing bitter.

Flaska systembolaget. Guldfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Ljuvlig doft av citrus, ananas och hö. Tjock och fin humlesmak som drar åt tallbarr och nyslaget hö topat med lite tropisk frukt. Fuktig och stor munkänsla med rejäl efterbeska.

Nice Amarillo nose, good taste but not very well balanced. Short but pretty bitter end. Color is fantastic and so is the crown. Easy to understand, not complex.
