COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bright India Pale Ale with low bitterness and great flavors of pineapple and stone fruit. Large amounts of hops such as Chinook, Mosaic, Ekuanot, Citra and Simcoe create a unique tropical taste and aroma in the beer. In addition to pilsner malt there is oat flakes, unmalted wheat and wheat malt. This creates a soft and juicy unfiltered beer. The background to this beer is the new kind of India Pale Ale, New England IPA, which emerged in the eastern US lately. A long time ago, 1638, Swedes emigrated to America and formed a Swedish colony – New Sweden, on the East Coast that lasted for a few decades, which has inspired us to the name of this beer.

Malts: pilsner-, vete, ljus karamellmalt, havreflingor och omältat vete

Hops: Chinook, Mosaic, Ekuanot, Citra och Simcoe

CloakedDagger (2800) - - NOV 13, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours golden with a slight haze and a lacing, white head. Very fresh hop aroma, some herbal dankness as well. Medium body, some sweet fruits, again an almost herbal hoppiness leading to a rather solid bitterness. 131117

TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2017
Bottled 330ml (Systembolaget, PK Huset)
Swedish tick #1600. A bit hazy orange colour, good white head and nice lacing. Juicy nose has Mosaic petrol and citrus. Medium-bodied. Flavour has also juicyness but it is not so intensive than some other Swedish Vermont examples. This is more like "typical modern IPA" with lots of citrus and tropical fruits. Soft palate, very drinkable. Another solid brew from Oppigårds.

Frisk doft och smak. Beskan sitter i ett tag efteråt. God som sällskapsdryck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (4052) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2017
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, light - some citrus/piney hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, light - some citrus/light piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish, faint caramel and tropical fruitiness, some citrus/light piney hoppyness. Really nice hoppy and fruity aroma - flavor/finish could use more fruitiness.

SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is pineapple, maracuja, a touch sweaty, but mostly just maracuja juice. Taste is maracuja, juicy, a touch mineralic, very fresh, with a biscuity malt body, slight tartness. Juicy thick mouthfeel with natural carbonation. Very nice Hazy IPA!

JoTheO (248) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2017
Bottle 330ml. Looks like a yellow soda, Fanta Orange or something... but with a fluffy head. Totally packed with tropical fruity and lovely piney and fresh juicy notes. One of the better Swedish ”contemporary” IPAs.

Gorgosh (517) - SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2017
New sweden kan vara en ironisk blinkning till global uppvärmning. Varför annars så kopiöst med tropisk frukt. Det kan också vara ett rent och skärt försök att göra en bra IPA med frisk passionsfrukt och citrus i både arom och smak. Kom ihåg var ni drack det först. Om 20 år kan passionsfruktsjuice vara det enda du har att släcka törsten med.
