According to my taste buds and nose, this is the ultimate expression of malt, yeast, hops and water. Having tasted quite a few sorts, the OIT quite frankly tops my list. Not, standing out in any extreme sense, like an Imperial *whatever*, it is perfectly balanced in all aspects of the brew. If I had to choose one beer to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it. The -1 in overall comes from the relatively high ABV, a 20 would be the OIT with no intoxicating effect at all...

The best beer of Sweden ! I like it even more than the turbo double IPA because it is more refined in thé taste.

Awesome Swedish American IPA. Lovely flowery appearance in both aroma and taste. It has a long last bitterness!

Wiedereinmal darf ich mich freuen, mit Max ein Oppigards aufzumachen. Das ist schon ein Highlight. Im selben Zuge frage ich mich, wann Fraktion Freiberg wohl mal die übergebenen Hopfenwunder testet? Diese einfach gestalteten Oppigards Flaschen würde ein Assi nichtmal kaufen, wenn sie unten im Regal stünden. Der Kenner wertschätzt die Einfachheit und konzentriert sich auf den Inhalt: Rostbraun bernsteinfarben und etwas matt gießt sich das wunderbare Nass in das Glas. Der Schaum ist unverzüglich weg und eine Perlung gibt es nicht. Der Geruch offenbart wieder einmal die weite Welt der Craftbier Zutaten. Ich vermute Amarillo Hopfen, welcher eine Orangennote ins Bouquet bringt und Magnum, welcher einen frischen Waldduft erzeugt. Man fühlt sich direkt in den schwedischen Wald versetzt. Ab Antrunk ist das Bier ultra brutal Herb. Das ist mal ein IPA, als würde man in Hopfenkonzentrat baden. Es wird hintenheraus erst erkennbar, wonach es noch schmeckt. Orange, Pinie, Harz, Holz. Der ätherische Geschmack hinterlässt eine trockene Zunge. Man muss trotzdem immer wieder trinken. Krasses Zeug, bei Oppigards arbeiten nur kranke Leute. Und ich liebe sie.

At Mackinlays Inn, sthlm.Delicious fruity aroma. Guess this is an IIPA and not a regular IPA like Amarillo. Great stuff. Perhaps as good as the amarillo. Will definitely buy again.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 A confidence and self-evident IPA now that summer is here. The taste is clear and fresh, yet not "too much"

I’ve had a lot of Oppigård-beer before this one, and I know that they are skilled with the hops, so I had high expectations for "Indian Tribute". I’m not disappointed :-) The beer pours smoothly with medium carbonation, leaving a subtle mantle of foam on top (as does many IPA’s). Color is light amber, much like the color on the label. Aroma is somewhat sweet but rounded off by the nice hops. Honeydew-melon, peach, apricot and young spruce-shoots. Taste is overall very good, maybe somewhat too light for my taste, but still rich and complex. Breaking up the palate, we’ve got the initial carbonation-tingle, then bitter-hops, followed by a great bouquet of aromatic hops and light/medium malts. It leaves you thinking of a big slice of honeydew and non-sweetened ice-tea. Very refreshing and just perfectly balanced up by the alcohol (which shows itself as a slightly thick and warm mouth-feel). Enjoy this beer with good conversations by the water, combine it with lighter dishes or add as a kicker in deserts! Also try pouring some on real ice cream! /Hansays
