COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, special
2013 Single-hop release. Part of the IPA is dead series. Single hopped with Amarillo @6.9%
Re-Released as part of 2014 selection. @7.2%
One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

Bottled. My last single hop IPA from the latest ipa is dead release. Overall a much much better beers than the previous release. Amarillo is less hoppy and citrusy, but damn good! Bitter malt dominates this beer. I like that. Overall amarillo single hop is damn tasty!

Floral, fruity, complex aroma. White head with good retention. Clear, golden colour. Sweet at first, but then bitterness takes over. Interesting taste thanks to heavy hopping and good malt background. Absolutely fits the style, style example. Fantastic beer.

Butelak 33cl. Piwo ma kolor bursztynowy i średniej wielkości piane. Z zapachu można przede wszystkim wyróżnić słód o nutach tarty i karmelu i oczywiście grejpfrut! Amarillo pełną gębą. Nie jest tak żywiczny jak Comet ale mocno cytrusowy w aromacie i umiarkowanie gorzki na tyle by zrównoważyć słodkość. Piwo pije się łatwo i ma dobrze ukryty alkohol.

Resinous hops, medium head. Soft mouthfeel. Resinous piney fresh hop taste. Best of the bunch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (969) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 19/7/2014. Pours a a clear deep golden with a small head. The nose gives you some lovely passionfruit and lychee, and some floral notes. In the mouth, there’s a light biscuity malt and oodles of fruit, including apricot, peach, passionfruit, lemon and apricot. The hops are prominent but not overwhelming, with pleasant lingering grapefruit notes. Has a medium to full body and average carbonation. I really enjoyed this one. It probably just shades the Comet.

MarkoNm (454) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours a clear coppery color, topped with a decent, slightly tan colored head. There is a very pleasant citrusy hops aroma. The taste is quite bittery, some fruits are also present. Dry finish. Very nice, but not the best out of the series.

330ml bottle from Queens Plaza Beer and Wine 160714. Like the other 3 beers in this series this one is a pretty good drop. Dark amber colour with a tidy head and lots of hop goodness.
