S:t Eriks och Thornbridge är båda kända för sina tolkningar av modern amerikansk IPA-stil, men här har man i stället bestämt sig för att göra ”en modern tolkning av engelsk IPA, jäst med äkta nordengelsk jäst och genomgående brittisk humle för en unik och komplex fruktighet – en hyllning till allt bra hos en IPA.” Årets kollaboration är ljust bärnstensfärgad med en alkoholstyrka på 7,4 %, bitter-, smak-, arom och torrhumlad med bästa engelska East Kent Golding humle till ett IBU på cirka 75. Jäststammen är av äkta West Yorkshire-typ med en fruktighet som fungerar särskilt bra ihop med humlesorterna. Trots höga IBU så är beskan fantastiskt mjuk.

Good fruity aroma. The taste is slightly fruity with a lot of bitter taste. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth well a weak moment. But this beer is too bitter for my taste of IPA. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

ninecats (164) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2014
Fresh keg (only six days old) at En Öl- och Whiskymässa, Gothenburg, april 2014.. Pours deep clear golden with a fairly lasting slowly dissipating white head. Aroma is soft malty, caramel, bread, biscuit, floral hops. Taste is is a nice flowery bitterness on a big malt ground with biscuit and crackers. Ends flowery bitter without going in the typical rough way. Medium body, medium carbo, soft, sticky texture. A nice display.

What happened here? St. Erik’s seldom fail and this should be good. Probably an infected bottle as this most tasted sour, spirits and bad.

djoeye (1535) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2014
Vanilla huge head, some lacings, amber golden clear body. Mild fruity inviting aroma, lemony juicy hops, caramel malts. Taste; bitter caramel, lemon, hops, roasted caramel. Smooth and well bodied, low carbonation. Lingering finish, bitter and dark caramel. The oat makes this a fruity IPA. Hope S:t Eriks will brew it again and again and again.

Smells IPA with some dose of creaminess. Pours light golden with little white head. The taste has a bit of wine in it. The aftertaste fails- quite gluey and sweet. Otherwise ok.
