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.

djoeye (1855) - 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.

JeyAre (216) - - JUL 5, 2014
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.

Cunningham (4943) - 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 (3578) - 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.

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 (1315) - 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!.
