_angst_ (2588) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle bought at Systembolaget on August 3. Consumed the same day. Pours a hazy orange liquid. Smell is an intense fruit salad filled with mango, pineapple and grape. Taste is bitter with a well rounded sweetness with clear notes of tropical fruit. A very good IIPA and one of the best Swedish beers I’ve tasted so far.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - SEP 3, 2011
Hazy orange color with a compact white head which slowly fades away and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma of exotic fruits like mango, pineapple, starfruit, peach, passion fruit, tangerine, and grapefruit. Behind the hops there’s some bready malt with a touch of caramel. Flavour of mango, pineapple and passion fruit which leads to strong grapefruity bitterness which is lightly balanced buy the cookie-like malt and caramel. Pine needles and resin can also be found. Fullbodied with soft to average carbonation. Damn nice!

Vignale (1993) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011
En riktig höjdare från Sveriges stabilaste bryggeri. Riktigt fullpumpat med humle. Doften är fantastisk, redan här känner man att det kommer att bli beskt. Färskpressad grape, mango, lite fläder och tall. Stor något oljig munkänsla, söt, stark, fruktig och rejält besk, men i bra balans. Sveriges bästa DIPA, ja kanske bästa öl någonsin. För 22,90! Otroligt roligt för alla svenska ölälskare.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2011
bottle... medium gold with a light off white head... burnt sugar cookie malt with a bit of oranges, ok... way too much alcohol on the nose, pine with alcohol... very so so

ClubGonzo (3918) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, shared @ VANØ Bergen tasteout, thanks Mikael for providing! :-) Pours a dark-hued clear orange body with a small white head. Aroma is caramel, pine, grapefruit and hints of kiwi. Taste is more pine up front, then everything mellows out into a blend of caramel, grapefruit and grass in the highly smooth fashion that Oppigård usually delivers. Hints of cough syrup and molasses. Well-tuned and balanced, yet with a significant resinous hop bite. A very nice DIPA from the winners of this year’s Swedish national home brewing championship.

SirLimpsalot (2066) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2011
Klassisk humledoft, mycket fruktig, Mycket av allt i smaken - stora toner av humle och gul frukt, Lång eftersmak, ok balans, aning tung, men mycket stabil

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2011
(Bottle) Pours hazy dark orange with an off-white head. The aroma is fantastic – really tropical and dank with tones of passion fruit, mango, canned peaches, strawberry jam, cat box, lychee, black currant leaves/tea, sweet citrus (tangerines and sweet pink grapefruit), white flowers and pine soap. Perfect balanced malt with notes of toast, bread, caramel and maybe some cookies. Hints of cinnamon buns, dough and cucumber. The nose has everything I desire in a DIPA. The flavor is light sweet, near heavily bitter and light acidic. Boat loads of citrus, tropical fruits, pine, resin and herbs. Stable malt backbone. The mouthfeel is round and fairly soft but the finish is almost tart from the brutal hoppiness. Light carbonation. Spicy grapefruit, woodsy resin and light tropical fruits linger in the finish. Medium to full bodied. A fantastic DIPA!

haukur (1269) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 19, 2011
a world beater in my opinion. Reletively easy, incredibly masked, very piney, grassy and citrusy. Orange with a small lacy head. Very floral. Excellent.

Ingevara (788) - SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2011
Bubbly lasting head. Apparent alcohol. Lots of flavor,d eep aroma, but simply too much hops. Where’s the balance? You just can’t keep on adding more and more hops and have better and better beer. It doesn’t work that way. The recipe is excellent, but change the amounts and Oppigårds will have real winner.
