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.

visionthing (4058) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2014
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)

Nose is soapy citrus, Aroma is fruits, light caramel, candy sweets, soap, steamed vegetables, blood orange, perfect balance. Taste is medium sweet, light hoppy bitter, hint of fruity sourness. Finish is long lasting fruity hoppy bitters-weet. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Easy, flavorful.

Dark golden pour with little head. Sweet orange and grapefruit on the nose, wish i didnt have a cold so i could get a really good wiff! Taste is really nice, well balanced. Mandarin and zesty citrus with a light malt behind it. Very enjoyable beer, very enjoyable hops.

JulienHuxley (5194) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle at another tasting. Hazy pale gold pour with no head. Aroma of fresh weed, quite lemony hop. Taste is nice, light malty notes, really citrusy hop, nice lemonade juicy citrus. Palate is light bodied with light carbonation. Beat my expectations.

MrHangover (3671) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
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!

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
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.

SinH4 (1599) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2014
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!

Hopmaestro (970) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
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.
