3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewery. A nice refreshing straight up Pale Ale, nicely balanced and clean finish. I suspect they use Amarillo in this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, out of the bottle. Aroma is a bit of malt and fresh hop notes. Taste is crisp caramel malt and nicely bitter piney hops. I wouldn’t describe them as "resinous" by any means, but... well hopped for a pale. Tasty and a nice pale.

On cask with crystal hops at Hangar 24. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is lots of citrus and a strong nutty malt character. Flavor is smoothly bitter and resinous with pine,citrus, and more nutty malt. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewery. Nose is spicy, hop-forward, but not a lot there. Flavor starts with a nice, piney hop profile, transitioning quickly to slightly toasted biscuity malt. As it warmed, the sweetness of the malts started to overtake the balance somewhat, but altogether a highly quaffable tasty brew.

Bottle picked up at an Angels game. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Nose is floral hops, bread, malts. Flavor follows. Thin mouthfeel and bitter finish. Easy to drink but light on flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy amber orange color with a thin white head. Aroma has a light citrusy orange pear characteristic. Flavor is mildly bitter that disappears quickly in the finish. Funky aftertaste thats hard to describe. Not exactly pleasant. Light in body. A decent example of a pale, but nothing spectacular.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Knotty barrel. Not much aroma for something called Amarillo. Tastes ok bit not great like other Amarillo single hop beers ( ie de mollen, mikeller). Watery and pointless. It’s not bad though.

Outstanding Pale Ale, not too bitter, smooth, excellent barley malt taste. Slight citrus. Spicy beginnings, barley kicks in nice malt barley aftertaste. So many pale ales dump in the bitters like grapefruit and don’t blend out the alcohol. This is a true pale ale. Hits the tongue better than first smell, first aroma not a good blend of citrus, barley and hops. After aroma through nose pleasant. Fresh, solid brewery upcoming.
