COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, special
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.

RexTalionis (2369) - FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper in color with an off-white head. Pine, hints of sweetness and citrus fruityness in aroma. Grapefruity bitterness, grassy notes mostly in taste. Hints of sweetness in aftertaste. There’s also that quite nice soft citrus juicyness in finish.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - APR 25, 2014
Barwa: złocista, klarowna. Piana koloru białego / łagodnie kremowego, średniej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymującą się nieco dłużej od pierwszego piwa, ale krócej od drugiego i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: w tym przypadku cytrusy faktycznie grają pierwsze skrzypce, kosztem innych owoców czy kwiatów, ale całość jest świetnie zbalansowana, bowiem chyba najlepiej przykrywa alkohol. Aromat mógłby być jednak bardziej intensywny. Smak: słodowy, raczej pełny. Podobna chmielowa kontra i grejpfrutowa goryczka w okolicach średniej, również nieco zalegająca. Taka sama alkoholowa końcówka, nieco piekąca w przełyku.

tiong (3683) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Vertical with the rest of the IPA is Dead 2014 series (Amarillo, Comet, EXP366, Kohatu) - Pours clear copper orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of stingy grassy notes, caramely malts, some floral hoppiness, citrus and zest. Taste is fresh hoppy, a bit stuffy and crisp malty with some floral notes, grass, zesty and juicy fruitness. Finish is smooth, malty and sweetish with some floral and zesty hoppiness. Okay, but doesn’t showcase the Amarillo hop as amazingly as some of the other single hop Amarillo beers do.

beholder (58) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 23, 2014
Appearance: light amber, crystal clear with a medium sized and quickly dropping white head leaving average lacing.
Aroma: fresh citrus, tropical fruits, subtle notes of pine and resin.
Taste: sweet, with tropical fruit notes, some pine and some straw. Medium bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation
Overall: this was the last one from this years IPA is Dead series, I had high expectations with this one and was not disappointed. It’s almost as good, or just as good as Comet. Overall 2014 edition of IPA is Dead is pretty awesome. You should try them all!

olio (5969) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma is grape fruity and somewhat resinous with hops, mild orange zest and pine needle notes also. Flavor is caramelous and tropically fruity, a bit sweet but the grape fruits cut it through a bit, mild piney notes with hay and dried fruits. Thick oily palate, doesn’t feel quite fresh but definitely the best of the bunch. Hop profile ok, a bit too sweet and resinous.
