3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen , shared with BBGTC. Pours a slightly hazy honey-hued orange with a small white head. Nose is pine, hints of grass, melon and spruce. Taste is pine, herbs and bitter grassy tones. A bit plain and one-dimensional, despite another classic hop type. Iím really starting to realize you need more than one hop to make a good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured near-clear medium orange with a tall, dense off-white head. The aroma picked up tropical fruits and catty hoppage over soft bready malts.. well done. The flavor found mangos, floral notes, and dry earthy stuff over sweet caramel and honey malts.. floral and citrus over tasty malts on the finish.. smooth, rolling carbonation.. well-balanced, and a very good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Zipps in MN, again age is a concern straight away but the nose is a little more prominent with the hops bitterness and Iíve had another Amarillo IPA so this serves to show aged amarillos not bad just a very generic taste a bit of sweetness comes through with this beer quick finish

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear orange to amber hued body with a thick, off-white head. Good lace with pretty decent retention as well (same appearance descriptor for all of the beers in this series). Aromas are dank, tropical fruit, mango. Strong hop, minimal malt. Flavors are tropical fruit, papaya, a bit waxy. Bitterness is pretty clean. Fruity and dank notes. Lively bubbles, dry. One of my favorites.
