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.

330ml bottle from trade with Nische, many thanks. BB 01/2016. amber clear color, small off-white head. smells fruits, kiwi, bread, flowers, light grass, light sweetness. nice smell, but rather limited. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of bread, some sweetness, light flowers, acidic, light fruits, oranges, banana, light grass, spices, herbs, kiwi, mango, a bit soapy. finishes with banana and some citric notes. herbs on the aftertaste. very subtle APA, I was expecting something a bit bolder, its almost a bit boring. Nicely balanced though, I wish the hops were just a tad more nuanced.

BOTTLE 33CL. Clear amber, tan frothy head. Quite an intense hoppy aroma, with notes of tropical fruit and some pine; becomes sweeter with time. The flavour is similar, citrus and pine, equally balanced by caramel malts. The finish is moderate bitter and zesty.
