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.

Habanero (2490) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 Bottled. Pours slightly hazy and amber with a huge, creamy, off-white head. Excellent lacings. Floral hoppy nose with orange peel, citrus and grapefruit. Flavour with citrus, pine and notes of caramel and malt. Medium to full bodied. Nice strong and long lasting bitter finish.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Hazy Tea-orange color, thick foamy white head. Nose of grape, grapefruit, fruit punch, sawdust, and cream lead to creamy body that combines straightforward resin bitterness with orange sweetness. Chewy body that dries out the mouth as it deposits a lot salt while lingering in pale malt. Everything here is good, particularly the fruity nose and creamy yet effervescent body.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very lightly hazy, dark, burnt-orange amber to sienna color. A thick, spongy head of ivory tinted foam settles to thick, lilypad-esque discs of persistent froth. Dense sheets and clumps of lacing coat the glass well. The nose is well balanced, showing toast, biscuit, and toffee in the malt base. Countering notes of bitter orange, softened pine resin, and peppery flowers prove fairly bright and fresh, though there’s a hint of estery, slightly fruity, Belgian yeast funk. Flavors follow suit, again well balanced between the toasty toffee-biscuit and the bright, bitter, orange-grapefruit and resin notes. Medium-bodied and smooth, the finish dries out a bit, while carbonation remains soft but persistent throughout. This one is pretty solid. Nice addition to the single hop series.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle side-by-side with Tomahawk. Pour is hazy copper with a large light tan head. Aroma is mild pine and floral hop with a honey malt aroma. Aroma is much more subtle and crisp than the Tomahawk. Flavor is also floral hop with notes of pine and citrus. A bit cleaner than the Tomahawk. The honey malt is most evident early and late with the middle dominated by hop. Finish also have some lingering floral hop notes with a faint yeast component. Thus far, I like Cascade the best.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle shared by Victor. Pours a copper toned body with a thin white head. Tropical fruit notes, punch, wild fruit and some pine and grass notes. The only thing is the finish was pretty strong and hop resinous bite was very drying. Not a favorite hop of mine.

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.

fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2010
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 (2614) - 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.
