3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy brown with a medium head. Aroma is naturally dominated by hops with some fruits on the side. Flavor is pretty watery at first but the strong hops in the finish also bring along some more malts, so overall pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copperbrown beer with a quite weak and blond head. Aroma is tropical fruity, grapefruits, some glue, and fructose sweetness. Taste is strongly bitter, pine needles, grapefruits, some fruits, and aftertaste is long and dry. Quite light to drink, but body is strong enough and so hoppyness is balanced. Good beer, where Amarillo is naturally the main thing; aromatic and sophisticated bitter taste, slightly milder than brewers Single hop Simcoe beer.
