Oh the amarillo hops! What a nice IPA and a cool name. Hoppy, flavorfull, refreshing and a nice protective head. Definitely will not find in a 7-11. I will place this high on my must-have list.

Just enough bitter to keep my IPA lovin arse happy. First beer I have had from these guys... I hope it is a reflection on the rest of there goodies...(but judging by other raters it is not)

beautiful pale orange/amberish color. great balance of flavors that include carmel and definate graperfuit. i agree with the description that claims a crisp finish. this beer is surely a thirst quencher. decent lacing. i love the look of the vertical column of bubbles created in my glass by the embossed "D" on the bottem of my Duvel tulip.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Fruity aroma like jelly covered biscuits. Fairly flat pour with little head. Golden yellow in color. Very bitter flavor, lemony, but the malt adds richness. Definitely sweetens as it warms Desert dry finish. Definitely worth the tasting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention and nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is rich and bold with a heavy fruit (citrus/kiwi) nose. Dry, well-balanced, crisp flavor. Moderately bitter and mildy astringent. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and light carbonation. Bone-dry finish. Different, but very drinkable. Not too shabby.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a brilliant golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is grapefruit, mandarin oranges, hint of bubblegum. Flavor is grapefruit and pine. Finish is very dry. Not as well balanced as many IPAs, malt is very understated. You can do a lot better in the style. I’m surprised this one is rated so highly.
