3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Pours a nice clear golden orange with just over a finger of off-white head. Aromas of biscuit, toast, floral notes, resin. Tastes of toast, biscuit, resin, light citrus. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Medium carbonation, semi-juicy mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a foamy off-white head that left lots of sticky lacing. The nose is quite spicy in the hopping, with a heavy sweet caramel malt sweetness. The flavor isnít the best for me, itís a little too heavy on the sweetness for my tastes. The hops are fairly mild, and they donít stand up to the huge malt bill. Medium to full bodied and a bit sticky with fizzy carbonation. Not one that falls into my desire for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Best by date on the side: 08/08/14. A clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Caramel, vanilla, honey, zesty citrus rinds, and grapefruit juice dominate the rich aroma. Goes down full-bodied and pretty syrupy. Caramel and sweet cereal grains start things off taste-wise. Vanilla in the middle. Plenty of grapefruits and zesty citrus rinds at the end. Biscuity and grainy. Resiny as hell! A fair amount of boozy warmth from start to finish. Solid.

Keg in the North Bar, Leeds. Amber with a really tight cream head. Loads of sweet resinous pine notes over a delicious caramel base. Superb beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a big fluffy head that fades very slowly. Aromas are sweet malt, rubber, earth, and caramel. Tastes kinda weird. Rotten oranges, rubber, biscuits, and grapefruit peel. Noticeable alcohol. I did not like this at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark golden with a frothy top. This is a big, chewy, viscous beer. The assault on the palate is contrived of an earthen yet acidic sting, but thereís almost a rubbery thing going on which must be an aspect of Amarillo that Iím not familiar with. Not my fave, but well made. (#5588, 7/25/2014)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ BTís Southern BBQ. Amber pour with a white head. Sort of a caramel malt aroma up front, but good orange and grapefruit character to it as well. Mild pine and floral hops, too. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side for my tastes. Lots of orange zest and grapefruit peel. Moderate bitterness of pine and perhaps some grass. Sort of bready as well.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Part of an IPA tasting, full pour. Dead last of our group, but you be the judge. Clear orange with decent white head, disappeared quickly. Lots of earthiness in the nose. Fresh grass, straw. Taste is like swiping your tongue across those elements - earth, grass, straw. Bitter finish. Is this the amarillo hop? Very wheat-y to my palate. Maybe a bad bottle, or Iím not used to this hop.
