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!

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.

kokkenrolv (4) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015 does not count
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).

neongolden (704) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours clear medium gold with an average bubbly white head, aroma of grainy biscuity malt, grassy, herbal floral hops with a little orange peel/pith type of fruitiness, lightly sweet. Palate is mildly sweet pale malt base, more biscuit tones, floral/herbal/grassy hops, some orange peel, a moderately bitter citrus/herbal hop finish that is pretty nice, dry and "green". Light to medium body with average carb. Maybe not the freshest bottle but this is a brisk and refreshing APA that keeps more towards the leafy than fruity hop character.

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

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2015
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.
