4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep copper with a thick lasting head. Aroma is grapefruit and caramel. Pretty sweet for an IPA, I appreciate the malt backbone. Bitterness is mild for an IPA and is overall well balanced. Has a medium body with average carbonation, not as thin as typical IPAs which I appreciate. The finish is bitter and lasts awhile. I’m not sure how fresh it was coming from europe so maybe some of the hoppiness has faded, but it is still a solid IPA. Can’t go wrong with amarillo.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
All the single hop beers of this series have a weird rubber aspect to them. Also flavours of an unpleasant darker malt. Overwhelms the hops.

Pours a hazy copper with some sediment(looks like hops maybe a touch of yeast), an averaged sized off white head and a lot of lace. Aroma is citrus, sweet tropical fruits, some resin, and a light malty backbone. Flavour is resin, citrus, light pine, medium sessionable bitterness, earthy, fruity, and caramel malt notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The Amarillo is a little more forgiving than the Warrior, but still pretty gross. Sub par, not worth a detailed description.

330ml bottle at home. This is similar to the Nugget version but slightly more citrussy aromas and astringent in the finish. Again a lovely smooth malty mouthfeel.
