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.

Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Thursday 7th August 2014 Pours clear warm gold, really is excellent clarity, a touch of honey bitterness good but under a malty leash. Nicely hoppy, but goes well with smoked almonds. A very good beer but smoother and less crisp than expected. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
33 cl bottle. Pineapple and other tropical fruits in aroma and taste. Well balanced, but spiky alcohol. Nice, but the Oppigårds Amarillo is light years ahead in all areas! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hm, den här var väl ganska slätstruken. Inte så mycket att tillägga om den här egentligen.

Klargul vätska med liten smutsvit krona som försvinner snabbt. Doften är mindre än förväntat. Klassisk aledoft snarare än sprudlande citrus. Smaken är balanserad med ett bra mellanregister men dör snabbt ut. Eftersmaken bär på en underlig salmiakkaraktär. Jag måste säga att jag är lite besviken. Jag hade väntat mig något i stil med Oppigårds amarillo men denna når inte upp i den klassen.

Brewdog has released four different single hop IPAs which gives us the opportunity explore and acquaint ourselves with different hop varieties. The Amarillo has a fruity aroma, somewhat sweet, with notes of orange. Taste is blood orange, with hints of honey. Bitter, still soft aftertaste.

Bra för att vara Singlehop. Gräsig citrus humle i aromen. Doftar precis som amarillo pellets hehe.

gyllenbock (8003) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden/amber with a medium white head. Aroma of some pineapple, hay, citrus and some malt. Similar taste. The mouthfeel was fairly soft. An ok one.

Beer is great! Amarillo hops work good as usual! Simple and complex taste at the same time. Worth buying!
