Luvystypotables (655) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Aroma of citrus, lasting small well laced head and a rich copper color. A strong citrus taste with heavy malt undertones. An oily feel with a lasting bitter finish.

Bottle. Cloudy golden color, thick white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pone, citrus. Taste lives up to its name, very bitter citrus.

Pours a yellowish orange with a white lacing. Huge citrus notes such as orange and pineapple. Rather juicy and very sweet. Quite good

tectactoe (1863) - Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle: Thanks to Jason for the bottle. Love me some Amarillo. A very slightly cloudy, yellow body with a stoplight amber tint. Soapy, bone-white head froths up nicely on top. Aroma is super dank & dirty, pungent weed, dripping pineapple, candied orange peel, juicy melon, & perhaps some more tropical-esque notes; I want to say guava. Supporting floral & bready notes. Mmmm, nice hop punch right from the gun on this one. More moderately pungent dank notes, weed, resinous hop oil bomb with slick & sticky mango, pineapple, & orange that have been coated & rolled in sugar. The malt is moderately sticky & the fruit hop character has a definite candied & sweet note to them, however the malt doesn’t evoke notes of caramel, toffee, or even toast. Makes me wonder if dextrose was used here, a la Abrasive or Ephraim? Either way, it works quite nicely. Light lingering bitterness throughout with more notes of resin, pine, weedy oil & sticky sweet tropical & mildly citric fruits hanging around. A delicious DIPA.

From the bottle. Pours a slightly cloud orangish/yellow, with a little white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Big citrus aroma. Taste is hop citrus with a bitter bite that last some time on the palette. Overall a good DIPA. Would recommend to others.

DisraeliEers (7) - Parkersburg, West Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2014 does not count
Aroma is a pleasant blend of hop oils and caramel malty sweetness, with some booze. Though I left the dregs, there was some floating matter. No big deal. It’s pretty balanced for the style. The huge malty body is balanced by the C-hop additions. Citrus, pine, some stonefruit, and booze (though less than the aroma would imply) compliments the caramel sweetness. Some breadiness comes in at the very end along with the rest of the bitterness. There’s something deep in the flavor that’s a touch offputting but I can’t place it; maybe one of the hop essenses that my tongue doesn’t like. Mouthfeel is great, a full, resiny body balanced with a good level of CO2 to clean the palate. Dangerously drinkable.

Had it out of a bottle, pours a slightly hazy orange hue and a thick sudsy white head. Heavy malt, hop taste, thick as thighs I say with a rich hop aroma to boot.

DialSquare (2656) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 On tap at Doc Watson’s in Toledo. Gold pour with thin off-white. Aroma is resiny citrus and caramel. Tastes are well rounded pine, grass, citrus hops and sweet malt. Good.

Bottle from trade. Nice aroma of citrus and pine. Orangeish pour with billowy head with lacing. Smooth for a dipa and I like that. Citrus and hops are throughout beer but always balanced. Niiiiice
