Cask: Pretty much a permanently available beer now. Very pale with delicious Amarillo hops, therefore earthily aromatic and highly drinkable. Yakima Valley is the area of Washington State in which the hops are grown. pron: YAK’-i-maw

Scopey (11958) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Cask at Fat Cat Norwich. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is fresh, juicy, peach, orange, tangerine, orange blossom, grass and hay. The taste is crisp, bitter orange peel, rindy, orange blossom, straw, grass and light spice with a firmly dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Juicy and refreshing. A tasty hoppy golden beverage.

SlackerMads (2779) - DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
Cask. Yellow with light haze and a medium sized white head with good retention and lace. Mild nose with hay and dry flowers. Flavour opens a bit more, but still fairly mild. Citrus, flowers, hay, light sweet tropical fruits. Medium body, light sweet, medium bitter. Long dry finish. Nice enough to drink and easy to forget.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Cask at the Market Tavern, Durham, £3.55/pint. A good looking pale amber beer with a smooth, white head. Not much to the nose but hints of cut grass and hay. Taste has well balanced slightly grassy sweetness and long dry, slightly resinous finish. Some pine in flavour. I was surprised to find there were Amarillo hops in this as it lacks their typical puckering citrus punch. That’s not to say it wasn’t enjoyable though.
