Oxymoron är en vidareutveckling av förra årets Black IPA Easter Edition. Som namnet säger är ölen en motsättning i sig själv, en mörk ljus öl. Humleprofilen motsvarar en IPA men med lätt kropp och mörk stoutaktig färg, fast utan de rostade tonerna. Oxymoron bryggs med Pilsner-, Pale-, Munich-, havre-, råg-, ljus karamell- och mörk karamellmalt. Humlesorterna är Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Columbus, Crystal, Magnum och Simcoe. (Oxymoron is a development of last year’s Black IPA Easter Edition. As the name states the beer is a contradiction in itself, a dark light beer. The hop profile corresponds to an IPA albeit with a light body and a dark, stout-like colour, though without the roasted notes. Oxymoron is brewed with Pilsner, Pale, Munich, oat, rye, and light and dark caramel malts. The hop varieties are Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Colombus, Crystal, Magnum and Simcoe)

yngwie (16884) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. A clear one, dark brown in color and with a minmal-sized beige head. Some roasted notes in the aroma, but it’s mostly on the piney and resiny side. Quite bitter in the flavor, with piney and resiny hops and a hint of roasted malts. Medium to full body, and a mostly bitter finish. Slightly unbalanced this one, but it drinks quite easily and doesn’t taste bad in any way. 120525
