Double ipa et quintuple houblon (nugget, chinook, columbus, cascade, citra). Niveau abv de 8,5 %. Mon exemplaire était à 5 mois après la date. Couleur orangé abricoté à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en plusieurs fontaines, bien vives. Mousse blanc cassé, soyeuse, stable à 3 mm. Fantastique nez de fruits exo, fruits confits, pâte de fruits, malt, houblon en fleur. 1ère bouche dense et veloutée, à la sublime entame malt/fruit exo/levure/houblon. Arrière-bouche longue, fine, très complexe. 2ème où les fruits s’accentuent, avec une épice et du tabac blond. Arrière-bouche large, vaste et fine. 3ème au très grand équilibre malt/fruit, avec un houblon vert en agrément. Arrière-bouche aux cent nuances, énorme. Longueur qui ne faiblit aucunement, mais au contraire trouve encore les ressources pour vous étonner .. Jambes fines, très serrées, denses. Levure fine, douce, précise, grande ligne. Alcool remarquable, il ne prend jamais la première place, mais travaille sur l’ensemble, l’équilibre, l’harmonie. Finale, allons-y, grandiose. CONCLUSION : en terme de double ipa, on est au firmament. Il est vrai qu’avec un "thurbo" dans le moteur, c’est plus facile pour y arriver … Bref, on ne s’ennuie jamais et on déguste en diable, même après la date limite … Ceci est dorénavant pour moi une des preuves de la qualité d’une ipa.

Pyrmir (5527) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Draught at ÖÖWF 2012. Aroma clean and fresh of hops and a bit of malt. Taste: rich in malt, well balanced, butterscots. Wonderful.

Wonderful fragrance. The taste is heavenly. Can it get as much hops in a bottle? Tons of flavor of hops. The aftertaste is long and lovely. A beer you just have to try. Do drink it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and rating.

Snygg gyllengul oklar färg. Doft av tallkottar, grape och passionsfrukt. Stor smak med beska som hänger kvar otroligt länge utan att vara för dominant. Alkoholen är fint gömd bakom en bra maltighet utan sötma. Drakens DIPA revisited.

Flaska från systembolaget. Underbar humlig arom och fantastiska fruktiga smaker med tydliga beska. Kanske Sveriges bästa ale.

I love this, buy it at least ones a month. The only bad thing is its strengths, you will feel it. Pour it carefully and you will have a medium head, if you are lucky and have poured slowly and leave the yeast in the bottle it is just a bit hazy with a orange glow. Smells sweet with lots of citrus and pine. Taste is very full and I find it balanced, the alcohol is there and keeps it from being to sweet or hoppy, it does not taste of alcohol and it is easy to drink to much on a hot summers day.. At least my wife says so...

Oppigards hat einen weiteren Dauerbrenner neben dem Amarillo. Das Thurbo double IPA. Männliche 8,5% und wie immer vollgestopft mit Amerikanischen Aroma- und Bitterhopfen. Citra, Chinook, Columbus, Nugget, Cascade. Was für eine Komposition. Oppigards Stino Zweifarben Design. Hier erlebt man keine Überraschung. Das Bier ist orange klar filtriert mit mittelporigem kurzlebigen Schaum ausgestattet. Die Hopfeningredenzien knüpfen einen exzellent fruchtigen Geruchsteppich aus Mango, Orange und Mandarine. Es riecht richtig frühlingshaft und exotisch und man würde nicht im Ansatz vermuten, dass hier 8,5% drin sind. Im Antrunk ist es weiterhin top fruchtig und die Kohlensäure unterdurchschnittlich prickelnd. Dann explodiert eine Bitterhopfenbombe und bringt zugleich einen schwach süßlichen und leicht alkoholischen Beigeschmack mit. Es wirkt enorm kräftig und weiterhin sehr fruchtig. Im Nachtrunk klingt es bitter und fruchtig aus. Ich bemerke, dass bei diesem Bier die Fruchtigkeit nicht nur im Duft sondern von vorn bis hinten im trunk zu erschmecken ist. Das finde ich super.

Furseth (2087) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2013
Draft @ The Rover Gothenburg: Hazy yellow colour, with a big nice head. Aroma is dominates of a "bomb" of fruits, orange,flowers, maltynes. Flavor was a bomb for my mouth, a werry nice fruity, orange,citrus complex mouthfeeling. Big body and a dry bitter finish who is endless!! Well done!!!!!!!
