3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 330 ml bottle at Cardinal Pub & Bar (single hop tasting). ABV is 6.8%, IBU 72. Hazy deep golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of pine, citrus and dust. Hoppy flavour, but not too bitter - the malts somehow seem drier here than in other varieties of this otherwise identical brew. Notes of resin, grapefruit and dust.

Hazy amber beer, good off white head. Dry crispy palate. Fairly bitter minerally orange. Shows fresher orange before a dry bitter finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden color with a nice head. This ale really celebrates the Amarillo hop. Nice fruity citrus aroma with hints of peach or apricot. Balanced malts to back it up - but it doesn’t steal any spotlight from the hop profile. A very nice single hop.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice dark honey colour, hazy with a good white head. Smells like grapefruit with a hint of sweetness. Taste is a bit simple for my taste. The first impression is sweet, and I find the grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste. An ok beer that proves its point. Probably better if you taste the whole range:)

Aroma is citrus, yeast and a hint of lime/kiwi. The flavor is lime, fruit, citrus, a grapefruit pulp-like palate and a mix of tart and bitter in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. hazy copper body, big beige head. Good hoppy aroma, citrus, grass, peach, pine. Even though the amarillo has a pretty rich taste, the taste of malt base of the beer is still present, combined with the hops mango and citrus tones, a good bitterness, and finish of grass and citrus. Used in correct amounts i find the Amarillo a really well tasting hop, as shown in this beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. brewed 2012-04-25, best before 2014-04-25. No batch info.
orange colour with a medium big white had that settled down fast.
Aroma is laden with bitterness and tropical fruits. Malty. Some yeast.
Flavour is refreshing and nice. Medium bitterness. A decent blend of tropical fruits and malts, though more malts than hops and fruits.
Some bread and yeast. Probably needs another hop to balance it out.
