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.

Maris (1390) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 19/7/2014. Pours a a clear deep golden with a small head. The nose gives you some lovely passionfruit and lychee, and some floral notes. In the mouth, there’s a light biscuity malt and oodles of fruit, including apricot, peach, passionfruit, lemon and apricot. The hops are prominent but not overwhelming, with pleasant lingering grapefruit notes. Has a medium to full body and average carbonation. I really enjoyed this one. It probably just shades the Comet.

Bought at Systembolaget as part of the IPA is dead Single hop 4-pack. Amarillo really works as a single hop IPA. Yet another good Brewdog beer.

Davros (2810) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours amber with a large, lasting head. Nose shows orange peel, floral hops, orange marmalade, spicy notes and a fair whack of sweet clean malt. Lots more orange marmalade as a flavour along with some pine and resinous hops. Lots of malt sweetness too followed by an assertive bitterness to round things out. Nice moderately high carbonation works well.
