COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cunningham (4524) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Appearance: Golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Citrus hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. A bit sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Oily texture.
Taste: Citric hoppy, rich pineapple and a fine malty back.
Overall impression: Not very typical British IPA. And nothing wrong with that. Just a bit to sweet.
Personal stats: Bottle Roberth bought at Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden

olsvammel (3072) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of fruits and caramel, a bit like dried fruit. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy. Flowery taste with caramel. Well hidden alcohol. Mellow bitterness. Odd that they make an american IPA with low ABV and an english with very high ABV (compared to similar of it’s style). Very drinkable though.

Zekada (143) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours golden, almost pilsnery, with a medium white head. A sweet smell with subtle hops and some bitterness. The taste is very noticeable and bitter. Not very hopy. Thin taste which dosen’t last very long, a small aftertaste of ginger.

BeerSkull (1307) - SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2014
(Bottle). Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, fruit and hops. Taste of sweet caramel malt, fruit, raisins, alcohol and grassy hops. Stronger flavor than an ordinary English IPA. The taste of alcohol is noticeable a little too much in the taste but otherwise an OK beer!.

Clear golden with low head. Sweet, earthy aroma. Raisins in the taste, well balanced with the bitterness. The alcohol level can be noticed.

gyllenbock (4716) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear darker golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, bread, caramel and hay. Similar taste. Sweet and not that bitter. An ok one.

Vignale (2069) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, klar, lågt skum. Väldigt söt och fruktig och inte alls vad jag förväntade mig. Men en fin komplex fruktighet precis som etiketten säger. Honung, physalis, melon, torkad frukt, kola. Mjuk men tydlig beska. Alkoholen slår igenom en del vilket ger hetta och kryddighet det stör inte. Trevlig söta fruktsmaker och på det hela riktigt trevlig.

_angst_ (2798) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours deep golden with a rather small frothy offwhite head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is floral with biscuits, freshly baked bread, hay, dried flowers, bubblegum, orange zest and star fruit. Taste is very sweet, slightly bitter and slightly fruity with biscuits, caramel, heavy star fruit, ripe peaches, hay, pine needles, resinous wood and orange zest., Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly cloying, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and floral with biscuits, heavy starfruit, hay, pine needles, resin and orange zest. I don’t suspect there’s anything wrong with this technically but this is way too sweet for me to enjoy...

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear bronze colour, rich, firm head. Generous english hop aroma with hay, flowers and resinous notes. Fairly sweet with near full body and soft mouthfeel. Fruity and floral with hay, caramel and honey. Mellow finish with long bitterness. Quality all the way.
