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.

Poured off a 330ml bottle from bottle dog. There’s a reason why Amarillo is seen in almost every other IPA. It’s perfect. This is definitely the best in the IPA is Dead series. Pours a clear golden with a head that didn’t last long. Seems to be a recurring theme in the IPA is Dead series. Beautiful grapefruit, pine and mango aroma. Exactly what I look for in an American style over hopped IPA. Tastes of all things citrusy and good. The malt is perfectly balanced by the late bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Too bad they don’t do single bottles of this outside the series. Amarillo is one of my favourite hops, and this IPA is its perfect showcase.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy Amber with a White head. Aroma is citrus, pine and malt. Tastes cracking. Tidy IPA. It almost falls outside the experimental nature of the range. By applying Amarillo, it just turns in to a bang-on IPA. Amarillo doesn’t need to be discovered because it’s already a celebrity. Delicious.

harrisoni (13579) - 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.

Bottled. My last single hop IPA from the latest ipa is dead release. Overall a much much better beers than the previous release. Amarillo is less hoppy and citrusy, but damn good! Bitter malt dominates this beer. I like that. Overall amarillo single hop is damn tasty!

Brenhophead (548) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
330mL bottle into a sam adams glass. Pours clearn golden with a small white head and a wonderful citrus/grapefruit/orange aroma. All that also follows through to an amazing sweet fruity flavour, lots of mango/orange and a hint of spice. A truly amazing hop.
