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.

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget - något mörkgul i färgen. Doftar inte så mycket men smakar fantastiskt, Citrustoner som påminner lite om apelsinsaft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från SB. Dofter av ananas, grape och kåda. Lite för hög sötma och lite väl vattnig, annars hade det varit en höjdare.

ekstedt (6082) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear amber, medium off-white head. Bready malt, perfumy and slightly piney hops with some tropical fruit. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry, medium bitterness. To little hop aroma for this abv.

Bought at Systembolaget as part of the IPA is dead Single hop 4-pack. Amarillo really works as a single hop IPA. Yet another good Brewdog beer.

Lawger (235) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
2014-edition bottle (7.2% ABV). Pours amber with half a finger of head. Peachy hops aroma with some citrus fruits, mango and some resin. Palate is medium bodied and balanced with nice hoppy flavours and medium bitterness. The finish is medium long. Quite a simple IPA, which I normally find is the case with single hop examples. Tasty but not spectacular by any means. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsniclas (6186) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottled from Systembolaget Deep golden with a white head. Very piney and fruity aroma and flavour. Oily plate and rather sweet with liquorice and salmiak.

Brenhophead (664) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
330mL bottle into a sam adams glass. Pours clearn golden with a small white head and a wonderful citrus/grapefruit/orange aroma. All that also follows through to an amazing sweet fruity flavour, lots of mango/orange and a hint of spice. A truly amazing hop.

stravale (2543) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from BeersIveKnown. Cheers Steve! [280814]
Dark golden amber, slight haze, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of citrus zest, some tropical fruits initially, sweet light caramel malts, fruit aroma dissipates over time
Taste of sweet fruity malts, citrus zest, dab of orange, some tangy zest, getting an earthy hop note
Palate - soft carb, medium body, oily, sweet malts, fairly bitter hops, body seems a bit heavy. Finish a bit dry, some bitter zest, soft herbal hop as well
Overall - The fruits started to go, then got a little herbal. Decent enough, but the Exp 366 and Comet are slightly better
