4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice, dark amber. A bit hazy, with white, big head that leaves nice lacings on the glass.
The aroma is very nice! Subtle notes of citrus, grape, papaya and mango. Nice yeasty esters as well. Very nice and complex. Could go on and on smelling this...
The taste is much like the aroma. Complex bitterness and sweetness, but in essence it all balances out very nicely. If I was to describe this beer in one word, it would be: balanced.
Definitely one of the best DIPAs I´ve tasted.

Medium sized tan head with good retention and sticky band of lace. Amber/copper hued brew. Nose of spicy hops and sweet malts, maybe a hint of wet straw. Body is med/full with a soft carbonation, oily, a bit too much so, very coating on the palate. Sweet malts,, lil toffee and a light mustiness. Wet grass and some iced tea notes as well. Sweet finish, lil cidery/vinegary. Old bottle. Props to stumpyiliz for the bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy medium brownish orange with a beige, frothy, thick, nice lacy, lasting head. Smells of fruity hops with nice citrus - grapefruit and mango and pine with a nice sweet and caramel malt. Some alcohol in the background with yeast. Full, oily body with no carbonation. Starts out sweet with a bitter hoppy peppery finish and a sweet aftertaste of honey. Alcohol is present and warms the tummy. Very full and bitter IPA that adds a good level of sweetness to a generous amount of hops. Sweeter than most

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Small off-white head. Fruity, mango, honey melon, floral, sweet notes in aroma. First sip is bit too sweet, but second one makes my saliva glands to explode! Ziljon different tropical fruits invade my mouth, hiding all that 9,2% of alcohol so perfectly. Sweet bitterness in aftertaste. Brilliant beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep hazy copper coloured body with a bright orange tint and a super thick, luscious seven centimetre tall tan head - nice! Aroma of alcohol, earth, caster sugar, grapefruit and a bunch of herbal notes with a touch of honey. Full-bodied; Strong assertive sweetness with a good lightish hop finish and a good malt backbone. Aftertaste is strong with honey, malt, alcohol and a light hop flavour. Overall, a nice imperial ipa with less emphasis on hops and more on sweetness and body. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 09-June-2012 for US$6.20 sampled at home in Washington on 11-May-2013.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cerveza de color marrón, con espuma blanca que desaparece rápidamente. El olor me recuerda a una infusión con limón y miel. El sabor es cítrico, bastante floral, miel, y amargo especiado al final. Tiene muy buen paladar, gran cuerpo con la perfecta combinación de gas. Una gran cerveza.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
El paladar es mas bien corto y mejor si se bebe muy fría no a 10° co o dicen y... Es lo único no tan satisfactorio. Un aroma potente, delicioso, con notas de caramelo y naranja, apariencia dorada pero algo oscura, con un sabor final de maiz y lúpulos de amarillo. En el limite bajo de IBU’s para una Double IPA pero suficientemente amarga para disfrutarla. Una belleza.

On tap in IPAnema beer bar. Pours hazy,dark orange with a thick head. Full bodied and full of aroma of citus, grapefruit,orange and flowers. Great taste and the strong ABV well hidden. I can say that I’m addicted to De Molen’s Amarillo
