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.

Brenhophead (695) - 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 (2778) - 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

olsvammel (5995) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell with green hops or hop bag, some citrus and grape in the background and even further I get some light tropical fruits. Similar taste. Decent IPA but the green hops/hop bag is a bit off.

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!
