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!

Nice amber colour and a nice frothy white head with a golden hue. Fresh hoppy aroma loaded with grass and citrus. Great flavor loaded with a mix of citurs zest. Perfect mouthfeel makes this a summertime masterpiece from the guys in Dalarna.

anstei (226) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 21, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours clear light orange with a big head, not very stable though. Floral grassy nose, very strong for an IPA. Sweet but bitter taste, lots of hops too.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle, many thanks to Garlic of Doom! Pours a deep, reddish amber with lasting white head. Ticks all the hoppy, fruity, citrussy boxes required of Amarillo. Decent easy-drinking APA.

Moebbels (433) - FINLAND - MAY 14, 2015
A clear orange body with a scarce head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose is mild with sweet notes of berries, flowers and rapeseed. The nose is quite different from my experiences with amarillo. Taste is sweet at first which backs up the hefty, lingering bitterness. Fairly soft carbonation and ample palate. Quite nice and well balanced hoppy beer.

kokkenrolv (14) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Notes of fruit and a thin layer of malt on the nose. Appears golden amber, low/medium carbonation, thin white foam. Tastes heavily of the hops, towards fruity, orange and tamarind. Some bready notes. Bitterness sits for a while. Nice APA (bordering IPA).
