3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Vinmomopolet, Storo. Pours clear deep golden to light amber with an off-white head. Fairly hoppy aroma, not very fresh, thou, but fruity with notes of citrus and caramel and hints of alcohol. Feels a bit old and slightly stale, not very refreshing. Medium sweet and caramelly with somewhat modest hoppy flavours and a quite decent bitterness. Decent IPA still, but quite disappointing, possibly too old. (Batch #065)

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of me. Pour a slightly hazy amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very fresh Amarillo, obviously. Loads of fresh hay, light grapefruits, grass. Flavor is a bit less impressive, still decent bitter touches and some light fruity influences. Short, light bitter finish. Very nice!

Bottle at Another Tasting, hosted by MrHangover. Aroma is full of Amarillo hops, slighty spicy, slightly sweaty, a hint of marihuana and some resin. Flavor is very hoppy, very fresh and clean. I still love this hop.

Clear orange color with medium head that goes down quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, resins, and maybe orange peel. Taste is sticky sweet and fruity. Oily texture, near-flat carbonation. A bit warming towards the end. A really good one!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is piney, fruity and with notes from tangerines. The taste is a little oily and sharp, and that’s not how I really expected it to be. It’s not bad, but not "equally good" as other single hop Amarillo´s. The aftertaste is a little thin, and the rather high ABV had me expecting much more. After the first, sharp sting, it fades off pretty quick. But still, it’s a decent brew.
