COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Amarillo is a very popular American hop variety, which has gone from strength to strength all over the world. Plenty of floral aromas and pine needles and plenty of raw bitter taste. This Single Hopped IPA is a chance to taste Amarillo completely isolated from other hops.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pilsner, cara-crystal and munich), hops (amarillo) and yeast.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Resinous aroma of apple and a hint of apricot. A salty smooth mouthfeel with a bit of malty citrus. Far too bitter even for the style. Sharpness on the palate and lingering well after. Love the brewery and like this series but wasn’t crazy for this one.

Draught @ Ørsted Ølbar, Nørre Farimagsgade 13, 1364 København, Denmark.
Unclear medium orange color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, light heavy hoppy, grapefruit, citrus - orange. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20091122]

From Knightly. Amber color, thick off-white head, decent lacing. The aroma is very mild; banana and bubblegum? I don’t know, those were my first thoughts. Some saaz and caramel round out the scent, which didn’t have me overly excited to drink the beer. The flavor is better. Very bitter. Resiny hops, strong dough and caramel flavor, with some biscuity saaz. Not bad but kind of strange. The Tomahawk was better but I’m enjoying trying these IPA’s that showcase a single hop.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle. Fruity (mostly citrus with a bit of tropical), juicy, resinous, mildly herbal, and plenty bitter hops. Lots of bitterness on the finish. Dry, easy to drink. One of my favorite hops when combined with other hops, might not be the best choice for a single hop brew, needs something to balance or tone it down down a bit. Still a very enjoyable IPA.

dchmela (2565) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2010
33 cl bottle. Pours a light amber with a thick off white head. Citrus herbal hop aroma. Taste is smooth malt, nice base, and a big rough citrus hop bite. I like this hop more as an aroma hop, nice herbal citrus character, but come across too rough in the flavor. Good brew nonetheless.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2010
11.2 oz bottle shared by Victor. Pours a hazed copper with thinning head. Aroma is not as good as the tomahawk- seems less intense and perhaps a bit stale or old hops were used- grassy, light catty, some old tropical notes, and light mango and peach with crackery and toasted malts, a bit stale there too. Flavor is a bit minty and grassy, very light in the bright fresh hops- only some stale mango leftover with a decent bitter finish- disappointing.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 26, 2010
Botella. Unclear golden amber colour with a medium white creamy head. Pleasant piney, bit sweet, good hoppy exotic fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a pleasant bitter piney fruity hoppiness with a long lasting dry fruity finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2010
330ml Bottle: Aroma of hops, wood, light malt, and a hint of resin. Poured orange in color with a huge, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, slight malt, and slight Earth. Medium body. Slick, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, hops and slight malt finish is dry.

argo0 (11192) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 23, 2010
33cl bottle, best by 04/11/11. Hazy amber body topped by medium, rocky beige head that remains steady as the glass is drained and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some spicy, bread. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some spicy, light bread/caramel. Medium body, some resin, chewy. Another great single-hop IPA from Mikkeller, my favorite to date.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear light copper color with a thick foamy bright white head. Heavy lacing is left. Tons of teeny bubbles stream about. Nose is lightly spicy. Palate is very clean with a smooth, silkyness but a lightly dirty finish. Flavor of light amarillo hops that are spicy and kinda peppery with a light biscuit malt note and some hints of toffee and caramel. Nose is so light, but is kind of appealing. Its not in your face at all, very subtle with some nice spice notes. Bitter finish that stings and leaves the tongue stinging.
