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.

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)

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.

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.

Bottle pours amber with two finger white head. Pine, resin, tropical fruit, biscuit. Very bitter and moderately sweet. Medium, creamy, sticky body.

DialSquare (2541) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2014
12oz bottle from the Andersons Market, Sylvania. Gold pour with foamy white head and loose sheets of lacing. Aroma is pungent funky tropical fruit, resiny, pine and some strange onion vibe. Tastes are grassy, juicy citrus, bready malt. Astringent, get a little alcohol. I kind of hope this was off, but think it may have been what they were going for. Not for me.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark gold color with a small white head. The nose is has earthy hop notes. The flavor has a slight fruitiness with some earthy hops and a very nice blast of tangerine. Full bodied and smooth on the tongue. The ABV seems well hidden minus the slight warming feeling you get as it goes down. Highlights the namesake hop well.

12oz bottle, since I wonít spend another penny on Flying Dogs (all their beers are so weak) a friend bought this for me to try. OK, I was shocked. Flying Dog actually put some hops in a beer...wow! And, I have to admit, I liked this one. Good earthy hop flavor, strong alcohol taste.

Thisis12ptfont (828) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pronounced earthy notes on the nose followed by dankness, pines, peach, mango, pineapple and tangerine. Dark copper appearance with a lasting two-finger foam. Taste follows nose completely with strong earthy/muddy overtones. Harsh bitterness, pines and hop pellet leafy-ness in the for-front and the citrus notes hanging in the back. Tangerine, mango, tropical fruits and peach. Very boozy dry finish. Overall, really nice and unique IIPA. A+ rating.
