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.

Deep amber with a medium white head. Fruity aroma (passion fruit, oranges, apples, apricot) with some herbal notes. Taste is strong bitterness with sweet/citric fruits notes (pineapples, apples, passion fruit), caramel and light alcohol presence. Bittersweet finish.

pastymc (30) - Niscemi, ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottiglia 33 cl Color biondo ambrato, rame, molto limpida. Schiuma, bianca, troppo evanescente. Al naso lamarillo ben presente, con le sue note erbacee ed agrumate; presenti anche note maltate, leggermente tostate alla fine. Il luppolo il protagonista in bocca, ancora agrumi, con il suo amaro tanto decisioni e quanto piacevole. Emergono alcune note di caramello. Carbonazione medio-bassa, finale secco ma breve, e questo un peccato. Ben strutturata ma alcuni errori non la rendono ottima

Przylus (380) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Aromat z butelki białe i żółte owoce - głównie lychee i mango, słodko! Po przelaniu do szkła, do aromatu tropików dołącza wyraźnie bergamotka (earl grey) i cukierki ślazowe. Barwa bursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana drobna, wysoka, długa. W smaku bardzo słodko, tropikalnie i ziołowo. Podobne wrażenia, jak w aromacie. Niska goryczka.

Wellbalanced and refrshing. Great aroma with fruits and orange especially, and the bitterness is well balanced.

weordie (255) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 Pours copper with very little head at all. Aroma of orange, lime and acetone. Taste has a hint of bitterness but thats engulfed by the initial and finishing sweetness. Tasted better than I expected after aroma.

stoigniew (81) - Łęczna, POLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Bogaty aromat chmielowy, owocowy, tropikalny. W smaku orzeźwiające, cytrusowe, grejpfrutowe, czuć znamienity bobofrut marchewkowo - pomarańczowy i słodycz. Goryczka niska i przyjemna, delikatny alkohol. Bardzo dobre piwo, bardzo dobry chmiel.
