Draught at All Tech fest. Lacks a distinct hop aroma or taste. Fairly one note in its composition.

Aroma: Grapefruit mostly apparent with some light herbaceousness and very light mango; Malts are semi sweet caramel, and make for a fairly balanced nose. This is definitely not one for those seeking a lean malt profile. Appearance: Nearly still, copper bodied beer with a foamy white head that settles into a slightly whipped skin. Flavor: More herbal/wildflower up front with a sustained caramel malt backbone; grapefruit gradually wins out, leading to a somewhat bitter finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A well made APA from this brewer, and worth a try. My first Ei8th Ball beer!

on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Clear medium amber, light head cover, specks of lace. Taste is malt that quickly adds solid citrus/pine hopping. Mostly hops roll to a very long finish. Hop dominant, which isn’t balanced enough for me.

Draft at the brew pub. Pours clear bright amber with no head. Tastes like tangy citrus, nutty, musky, hop resin. Light.body and low carbonation. Smells musky, tangy, sweaty, with citrus.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head of foam. The aroma is herbal and tea-like. Taste is a little musty. Bitter throughout. Lighter body with medium carbonation.

Draft in a taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Notes of straw, grass, pale and sweet malts, light citrus, peppery spice, and a dash of herbs. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Good APA.

Alright, I purchased a growler of Prodigal at "The Party Source in Newport, Kentucky (a block away from the brewery in Bellvue, Kentucky) - this one poured out an auburn hued , piney smelling, West Coast type IPA that had a mighty Amarillo Hops presence. The taste is an excellent "grapefruit juice and pine needles" (citrus and hops) flavor and is an outstanding example of the style. Pass me another, Nancy!

Chudwick (2478) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2014
Growler from the fridge into Listermann Shaker - so this is Amarillo: pine and cat urine. Alas! Kind of watery but crisp. Oddly satisfying. Citrus aftertaste. Balanced but not pronounced.
