750 mL growler poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 9/2/2013. Pale hazy orange. Huge white head. Laces nicely and retains a thin layer of surface foam. Orangey hops. A bit of grapefruit. Smells like a sweet freshly cut orange though. Slight bit of pale malt. Really orangey taste. Slight sweetness. Pale malt and a ton of graininess. There’s a little bit of a weird flavor in the very back, but it’s so slight I’m not really sure it’s the beer or my imagination. Light, grainy, with a false sweetness. Fades quickly to a grainy and light bitterness. The hop is good, but one dimensional. Doesn’t live up to the other single hop pales from Hill Farmstead.

On draft at Threepenny. I am trying to ed myself about hops, and from this I’m learning that Amarillo has a better aroma than flavor. Lots of fresh floral scent. The flavor is lemony with some wheat, and maybe a touch of vinegar even.

Une base céréalière moelleuse que je dois décrire chaque fois que je parle d’une single hop HF. L’Amarillo donne une bonne dose de sapinage, d’agrumes et chair d’abricot. Un autre délicat liquide à sortir de leur cuve.

Growler from Leighton. Pours a bright gold, light white head. Aroma is fresh grass, melon, light pine, biscuit, bread. Flavor is light sweet with melon hop & dry pine. Incredible balance, light and breezy. Light body and mouthfeel.

mcberko (10042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
750mL growler, sent from my sugar daddy, pours a cloudy darker orange with a medium white head. Nose brings out fresh tropical fruits, resinous hops and just enough malt to back. Flavour is uber fresh, with loads of dry tropical fruits, resinous hops, and a thin malt backbone. Very juicy and resinous, though sure light. Beautifully balanced, with a nice dry finish. Excellent as usual.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Growler: Thanks, Ed. Hazy, bright golden color with a soapy white head that slowly transitions into a thin collar. Smells of orange rind, pine, wet hop oil, a touch of peach, grass, & some fresh hop leaves. Dry & light flavor; hoppy juice with lots of orange flesh, orange rind, weedy hop leaves, lupulin oils, & a touch of white peppery spice on the back-end. Crisp, fresh, nice hop bite on the tongue without getting too bitter for a pale ale. Lingering with some citrus zest & maybe a touch of resin. A very nice pale ale from Shaun.

750 ml growler thanks to Adam. Aroma is floral, citrus and traces of grapefruit. Really bright and juicy.

Flavor is a great display of Amarillo hop variety. Floral upfront with juicy citrus and light residual sugar sweetness with a nice pale grain body. Different hints of fruits and melon in the backend with a very clean finish. Hints of dank, leafy hops. Jeez this is damn refreshing! All day drinker for me, can’t get enough.
