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)

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2012
0.33 L bottle. Thanks Cunningham, for the treat! Near black with dark brown highlights. Tan big-bubbled head. Initial aroma of fruity US hops, followed by a clean and subtle whiff of toasted and light chocolate-scented dark malts. Amazing! Clean, light roasty and chocolatey malt body. Bold fruity bitterness. Well-bodied. Juicy mouthfeel. Lingering fruity-bitter ending. Nice all over, the best BIPA i’ve had so far.

Big thanks to Rune for a nice gesture. Your kind words and this great gift made my last day as a student even more memorable. This IPA has an almost black body with a thick, long lasting off white head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, dried fruits, peach and dark chocolate.Thick and smooth mouthfeel. Dry and bitter finish. Beautiful lacings in my shaker glass. The aftertaste is mostly dominated by coffee. I enjoyed this one!

mike_77 (6253) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2012
Really dark brown colour with a tight, creamy head. Really sweet aroma of tropical fruit & hop. Some bitter burnt malts come through in the aroma too. Initial flavour is fresh, sweet and hoppy. Aftertaste gives a nice lingering bitterness as the hops and the roasted malts take effect.

pilsnerrogge (2908) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2012
The color is black with dark red tones. The foam is firm yet soft. It smells of pastry dough, hops and hair shampoo. The body is relatively thin. The taste is slightly toasted and turns into a noticeable hop bitterness. It’s a bit too bitter and unbalanced for my taste.
