COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

mcberko (9214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 1, 2013
On two at The Bishop Arms Vasagatan, pours a hazy vibrant orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, metallic notes, and some floral notes -- a bit of a syrupy, metallic quality to it. Flavour is very rich and round for a pale ale, with notes of floral hops, dry caramely biscuity malts, and some woody notes. Very round and full-bodied for a pale ale. Exceedingly drinkable and well-balanced. Great stuff.

Nice but to mainstreem. I miss complexity. But I really enjoy the Amarillo. Stable had and beautiful colour. Smells great, still only Amarillo as it sticks out the most. Beautiful beer but one really needs to want only one hopp. If other hopps just would be more prevalent in taste that would give a great palate.

Hopmaestro (454) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2015
I can’t believe I missed to rate this one. Classic. Aroma of light malts with grapefruit and pine. Medium sweet flavor combined with citrus, lime, bread, and pine. This baby could be one of the most solid beer from Oppigårds.

kerenmk (3206) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear amber with a white head. Citrus, grapefruit, and a little spicy aroma, hoppy citrus bitterness in the mouth. Medium body, juicy orange-clementine finish.

bbertels (209) - NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Deep orange colour, between fizzy and frothy carbonation. Pleasant bitter smell of, well, Amarillo. Bitterness is also present in the taste - although some metal and some water makes it not as rich as one could have hoped. Overall, though, very good.

Pours clear golden. Aroma os some floral hops, but not too much. Taste is nicely balanced, floral hops, but not too much.

NordicV (1366) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2015
Kopparfärgat lätt beslöjad öl med vitt ganska lätt skum. Doft av citrus med dragning mot apelsin och en hint av tallbarr. Smaken är en bra balans mellan malt och karamellsötma och humlebeska.

anstei (277) - 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 (2397) - 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.

Bottle from bursprak. Many thanks! Very fruity nose, flowers, tropical fruit and grapefruit. Light sweet with bitter dry finish. Easy drinkable. Very well balanced. Nice IPA!
