3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best of the whole series?
Bittersweet, slightly woody, saliva-inducing. Show why this is such a vital ingredient in many IPAs. Everyone end their neighbour has made single hop beers with this, so no real surprises here.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours apricot-amber with a whipped, yellowish head.
Nose is faint, but pleasant.....citrus, pine.
Taste is quite floral, grapefruit.....malt..
The Amarillo imparts a medium bitter that pairs nicely with the fruitiness.
A very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Bruce’s Housewarming Party Tasting, London. Pours a lightly hazy, dark gold with a small, creamy, off-white head. Mild nose with just some light, dry grass and pine, along with hints of alcohol and orange. Nice flavor of melon, with hints of florals and spice, light wood, grapefruit. Medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Medium sweet finish with some fruitiness, a bit of grass and pine, light dirt and sand. It doesn’t have a ’hop kick’, a bite, but it’s a nice drinkin’ beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a hazy pale amber-orange color with a thick and fluffy white head that diminishes slowly. Partial sheets of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of floral hops and citrus along with some malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of pine, tropical fruit and malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering fruit aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Orange verging on amber. Drily fruity, with white grape and some grapefruit - not much, mind. Crunchily dry. Very fizzy. Not the biggest flavour or best hop notes, perhaps, but improves through the mouth and gives hops without lapsing into dry or boring malt.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
As my favorite hop is amarillo, I had to try this, and it had to be an success. What a fantastic beer. The smell is just mindblowing, best smell from a beer I’ve ever had. The Aroma is tipical amarillo, citrus, elderberry, some grass. Very good balance in the mix here. Would have this over almost any beer when I have the chance.
