3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ Brewdog Shoreditch. The pour’s light amber with a small head. The nose is piss-soaked hay, some armpit, rotting tropical fruit funk. Light lemon zest and general citrus. The taste is strong lemon peel citrus, more funky armpit. Heavy tropical fruit juice. Quite syrupy, sweet. Loads of pine needle. Strong bitterness on the finish. Slick body, very sticky stuff. Overall, decent. Not a standout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brewdog Brum. Burnt, odd flavour. Evidently Amarillo is not one of those hops which are light, fresh or tropical. This is more like Chinese pork, or griddled orange segments. The aroma is faint, but slightly reminiscent of childhood September evenings: the sunlight fading, the grass moistening and the naivete hardening. Perfectly well executed, but the pickled fircone detracts from the qualities I associate with my fave OAPs.

Med amber color. Blood oranges and sac blanc nose, very head. The mouth is med with tons of weed. Wow, this has to be the most heady, slightly astringent mouth, but fantastic.

Keg @ BrewDog. Orange amber colour, not much head. Resin hop aroma. Dry orange flavour, bitter orange aftertaste. OK but not the best IPA is dead beer.

05/08 On tap @Csak a jo sör, Budapest. It poured slightly hazy deep golden body with medium sized white head. Very fine aroma, sharp orange peel (Amarillo of course). Fine biscuit and orange flavor as well, bitter with some herbal and peppery notes. Nicely rounded within medium to fuller, creamy body. Finished long and pleasantly bitter, yet not harsh at all, toast malt did its job. That’s a good IPA!

Tap at BD. Amber with off white head. Very resinous aroma, orangey. Taste is very orangey with quite a present malt backbone, caramel and biscuit. Slightly sweet and not quite bitter enough for me. Nice though
