3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Mohawk Bend, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of mild floral hops and some biscuity malts. Flavour of moderate floral hops, a little citrus, and some biscuity malt backing. Pleasantly floral with a good hoppiness for a pale ale. Good stuff.

Pours a yellow with an almost neon yellow tint to it. Aroma of malted hops and corn. Taste is simple with a mild hop aftertaste. A slight metallic taste after the swallow. A mild pale ale that was not complex.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
There’s so much hype about IPAs these days that the classic pale ale tends to be forgotten about. Once in a while a pale ale comes along and reminds me how good the style can be. A good example would be Hangar 24 Amarillo Pale Ale - a beer that has plenty of flavor, bitterness and is highly drinkable without making a big deal about it.
I poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Clear, bright orange/amber hue. Plenty of visible carbonation. Forms an average-sized, off-white, foamy head which laces and retains pretty well.
Smell: Sweet, orange candy-like aroma with a general floral bouquet. Clean, but not intense.
Taste: Hangar 24 Amarillo Pale Ale is exactly what I expect in an American pale ale. Plenty of hop character throughout the palate but without the raw density or chutzpah of an IPA. The Amarillo hops give it a distinct orange flavor all around - slightly sweet candy-like flavor up front with a slightly sharper, dryer bitterness through the middle. The malts are muted, imparting a light sweetness to balance out the hops. There’s a quick hop bite at the apex which linger for just a few moments before finishing cleanly.
It’s interesting how much flavor is here, yet at the same time I would not consider this a super robust beer in general. It’s satisfying and enjoyable at the time and seems to have good re-drinkability in that you could drink many of these without it wearing you out.
Drinkability: Half the enjoyment of this beer is how pleasantly drinkable it is. The body is medium, there’s a perfect level of carbonation to give it noticeable, but contained, energy. It’s crisp and refreshing while in the mouth and goes down smooth. I was surprised to see it’s "only" 5.5% ABV as it has so much flavor, but without the weight of something bigger. This might be dangerously drinkable in the summer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vons. Nose is somewhat sweet with a bit of hoppiness and a biscuity note. Understated dry hoppiness up front with a pretty strong malt foundation. Not super bitter, but not sweet either. Tasty pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from local grocery store. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is soft and indistinct with mild grains, grass and a hint of melons. The flavor, unlike the nose, is fairly assertive, with complex citrus--I get oranges, mangoes and papaya. The malt base is bready and compliments the hops nicely. The palate is a bit on the lighter side which is appropriate for the style, and the carbonation is lively. Finishes short and dry. Overall: I’m impressed, this pale ale rocks.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a amber orange with a small off white with a little lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, bready malts, citrus (grapefruit & orange) and a little pine. Taste is well balanced with toasted and bready malts, grapefruit & orange, some pine, and a little fruitiness. Has a medium-light body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a dry, well balaced moderate finish. Overall, a pretty decent pale that might be a little thin but is still tasty and refreshing.
