3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasty beer. Smells very strongly of tropical fruits, pineapple and banana. Some hops and malty breadiness to the aroma, and you can smell the alcohol (9.2%). Tastes of citrus and malt, very bitter. Oily with a full body.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber woth airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops with a subtle malty note. Intense, bitter flavour of hops with regular notes of citrus and grass. Discernible but unobtrusive alcohol presence. Rather rough aftertaste. A very nice DIPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. No sound when opened. Pours copper, with almost no head. Some carbonation, so it isnít a bad bottle, luckily. Lots of grapefruit and alcohol nose. Sticky mouth feel. Thick. Bitter, but surprisingly sweet as well. Grapefruit, malt, honey, sugar, hop aroma. This isnít the worst way to Amarillo:)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours pretty clear deep golden to amber, with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, tropical fruits, caramel, malt and hints of citrus and dried fruits. Quite sweet and a bit like hop juice, noticable alcohol, but quite well balanced. Not as good as I remember it from some years ago, but still a decent DIPA. Medium+ body with average carbonation. Bitter aftertaste with notes of pine and hints of citrus.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Soured fruit and caramel nose, grain, molasses, hay, rabbit pellets. Pretty orange/amber color. Medium caramel initial, juicy fruit and grass. Medium-heavy body. Tasty, but also fairly one dimensional. The Amarillo complements the caramel nicely. More like a barley wine than an imp IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Little hazy, orange colour with medium and quite stable head. Intensive aroma of grapefruit peel, piney and some alcohol. Taste is well balanced, some resin and caramel sweetness and lots of bitterness (citrus peel, pine). Medium carbonation and full body. Finish is warming and long. Another good one from De Molen!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0.75l from P&M Bonn. Opening the bottle ended in a geysir. What a gusher. Once it calmed down it poured a cloudy orange brown with fast vanishing white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, pine and some citrus. Intensive. Taste is caramel, some honey, citrus and a slight spiceness without being bitter. Itís rather sweet. Alcohol is not present for 9.2 ABV. Overall okay but too sweet and unbalanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Brewberry, Paris. Pours cloudy orange color with a full cream head. Smell as well as taste is really great if you like sweetness, it definitely reminded me of marshmallow! Vanilla, honey, orange, caramel aromas with notes of yeast and cinnamon in a syrupy texture, so itís a bit like a candy beer to me. You wouldnít say itís a 9.2% for that matter. Easy to drink but very interesting, itís a beer you remember.
