COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amalgamator is our newest "West Coast" IPA that’s bursting with unique aromas and flavors. A light base of American 2-row malt makes way for the hops to take the stage. Amalgamator is hopped in the kettle with Amarillo, Warrior, Columbus, and Mosaic, a brand new American variety. The dry hop is a massive charge of Mosaic that lays down an amalgam of passion fruit, dank resin, and citrus aromas.

At GABF. Yellow. Citrus aroma. Lemon peel flavor. Strikingly tart. No malt to speak of. A summer beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7097) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a clear deep gold body that has light copper hues and supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up some spicy dankness, woodiness and a little bit of malts off in the background. Another tug on the aroma reveals some thin candy like citrus hops that are blending well with the spiciness and more resiny smelling woody notes. Wow, the taste is quite nice with resiny, sort of woody bitterness as well as nice slim wedges of sweet citrus hoppiness. It gets a tad more juicy with citrus to midway and then it levels off with an even dry lingering modest resiny note heading into the after taste. Lovely tasting IPA.

Light copper with a nice head. Great west coast IPA with big hops and citrus on the nose. Bitterness up front with tangerine, lemon and grapefruit on the finish. Great beer.

Orange pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is large resiny/citrus hop aroma. Flavor is caramel malt, bready malt with a nice citrus/floral hop combo. An interesting beer the flavor is almost perfumy as well. Medium bodied with good carbonation. nice

Had on-tap, on cask, and in the bottle. Review is for the bottle - bomber poured into shaker pint. Appearance is clear orange body with off-white head that has good retention and leaves some sticky patches on the glass. Aroma is super tropical with passionfruit and pineapple, solid citrus with grapefruit and orange peel, and finally some wet pine hop dankness and melon. Taste starts with some biscuit malt sweetness and then quickly yields to tropical fruit juice sweetness and citrus rind bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.

joeneugs (3483) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. It pours a nice golden color with a white head. The aroma is sweet peaches, grape and mango hops. A little grapefruit blast as well. The flavor is full with grapefruit, papaya and citrus. Massive fresh hop character. Very little caramel malt and a big citrus and spice finish. Top notch West coast IPA.

Ontape (364) - Valley Village, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Seems very fresh. Hop-mutha-freakin’-bomb. My rating is too high if you aren’t a hop freak and too low if you are. A skillful blend of the hops involved. Aroma is basically a bag of the indicated hops just opened. If you aren’t crazy about massive hop presence this might feel like a green smoothie, it is unapologetically intense. I’m into hops and I am loving it.
