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.

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog London. Clear gold orange thin beige head. Hoppy aroma. Lovely tangerine and slightly peppery herbal aroma. Good solid Amarillo led IPA. Rather lovely to be honest. One of the better IPA is Dead series.

BenH (2140) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2013
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

Brewdog Shoreditch. Almost clear amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with a good carbonated sting. Minerals. A little malt cream with a trace of caramel. Good fresh hops, skunky grass, bitter pine and a pinch of mint. Surprisingly only a little citrus! Finishes with more smooth creamy malt and bitter pine that runs through to the aftertaste. Unusual Amarillo flavours but very nice.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours clear, deep gold with a small, creamy white head. Nose holds some urine, ripe citrus, nips of spicy pine. Medium sweet flavor with restrained bitterness, some drying orange, light grapefruit, hints of dank grass. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation, very light resinous grass to finish, some dry pine needles, orange, grapefruit, light pee, some dry pale malts. Well balanced overall but not particularly bright. Still, good and tasty.

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.

HogTownHarry (6042) - 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.
