12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into tulip glass. Crazy fluffy cloudy head, clear, yellow, great carbonation. Medium body. A little sticky on the tongue. Really herby nose. Super bitter and herby taste. A little mulchy. A little too much earthiness for me.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a hazy golden color with one finger head of white foam. The head of the brew has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave some rings of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a wonderful mix of sweet citrus and fruity aromas mixed with a good deal of some more slightly dank hop smells of an herbal and pine nature. A bit of doughiness and some light notes of a floral nature are there as well, rounding out the smell. Taste – The taste begins with a mix of nice bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a citrus and pine hop flavor and just the lightest amount of a fruity taste of apple and pear. As the taste moves on, the citrus fades, but the pine grows stronger and is joined by some flavors of a slightly more earthy and herbal hop flavor. With the bit of sweet that was present upfront fading, one is left with a more dry, but rather pleasantly hoppy flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer on the slightly lighter and crisp side with a carbonation level that was average. For the IPA and crisper flavors of the beer, the feel was rather nice and matched well the drier and hoppier tastes of the brew nicely. Overall – A nice crisp Single hopped IPA. A great one to try if you have the opportunity.

Great beer. Like the appearance but the taste, aroma and palate make the beer. Bitter beet with grapefruit finish.

Amarillo version A: Pours a misty golden tan ale with a single finger of off-white head which slowly dissipates to a thick quilt of the same. Domineering lacing, thick like a beard. S: Clean, grassy, soap suds, citrusy lemons. underlying grain bill is subtle. Nice beer. Delicious beer. T: Relatively bitter ale with sweet hopping flavors. Good, grassy flavors. Decent with well balanced tones. The hop schedule allows for good appreciation of the capacity for the hop. M: Medium with medium to high carb. Slick finish. O: Well done beer. Fun ale with capacity to allow for sessionability. I like this beer. Serving type: bottle 04-18-2011

Bottle. Nose immediately hits you with some floral aromas, then settles into some nice citrus elements. Taste is a little bitter, but light and quite refreshing. Hits the spot, though I think it’s slightly over carbonated.

Yellow pour with a large white head. The aroma is full of big pine notes with some orange and biscuit malt. The flavor is a mix of orange, pine and grass with a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours nice cloudy gold with thick rocky head. Nose is sweet hops and slight grapefruit. Palate is caramel malt upfront with some banana esters. Hops on the backend balance nicely. My first Bitter Root experience and its a damn good one!
