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.

Fin (7698) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Thursday 7th August 2014 Pours clear warm gold, really is excellent clarity, a touch of honey bitterness good but under a malty leash. Nicely hoppy, but goes well with smoked almonds. A very good beer but smoother and less crisp than expected. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Shoreditch. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is orange, peach, tangerine, pine, marmalade, earth and hay. The taste is pine, zesty citrus, orange, tangerine, passion fruit, assertive bitterness, juicy fruit, light resin and some underlying sweetness to balance it out with a bitter finish. Medium body and moderate-high carbonation. Hides abv and drinks well.

rosenbergh (7416) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2014
330 ml bottle. #065. BB 11/03/15. William K Kurvi, Helsinki, Finland. Clear deep golden colour with a tiny off-white head. Fruity, piney and mildly resiny hoppy, moderately bitter and mildly malty aroma. The flavour is piney, woody and resiny hoppy, some maltiness and some sweetness. Quite one-dimensional and a bit thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg, BrewDog Brum, 29/06/13. Copper orange piled with intricate lacing froth. Peach iced tea and sponge nose. Better, nicely stewed hop tea flavour with peach, biscuit, mint and Darjeeling snorts. Real nice.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 065, BB 11/03/2015. Orangée-ambrée, col crémeux beige. Arôme est fruité tropical, rétro subtil de pamplemousse assez léger accompagnée d’une note fleuri, base maltée similaire aux autres versions. Palais est fruité laissant pointer une fine amertume, le tout reste un peu huileux avec une certaine épaisseur et belle effervescence. Garde cette base maltée typique, léger fruité vert.

Tap at Roppongi. Nose of peaches, oranges, less caramel. Typical Amarillo. A bit pissy flavor, lemon, grapefruit, orange, bready. Nice, classic.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of lemon peel, some basil and fresh mint. Flavour of rich citrusy bitterness, chewy orange notes, sweetness and some resin. The bitterness kicks in quite nicely in the finish. Medium bodied. Quite classic in it’s bitterness, and it works as good as always. I found Comet to be even better, though.

olio (6523) - 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.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
(Draught at BrewDog Camden, London, 9 Apr 2014) Pale amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, tea, lemon peel and biscuity malt. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, tea, lemon peel, a slightly sharp and metallic malt profile and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well made, possibly a bit one dimensional. Nice one.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
August 19, 2013 - draught at BrewDog Camden. Hazy yellow, decent head. Aroma of tropical fruit malt and pungent borderline catty bitterness. Taste follows, more hop, less malt, some alcohol - nicely balanced. Average chewy body, medium finish. Pretty damned nice.
