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.

My bottle label is some kind of abstract shades of brown as opposed to the image shown here, but apparently it’s the same inside. I should note that I think Mikkeller is an over-hyped, over-priced POS...at least in my experiences. However, I really like the idea of their single hop taste test with 19 hop varieties. So, let’s taste armadillo hops. Aroma is, well...apparently what amarillo hops smell like, very piny. Appearance is a muddled brownish orange with sediment. Large head quickly dissipates. Taste is woody, chalky, and gamey if that makes sense to you. If this is a good representation of amarillo hops, I can cross them off my like list. Does this make the beer bad? Well, yes and no. Bad to me, because I apparently don’t care for amarillo hops. And since I use this site as a diary for ME and MY beer tastes...sorry Mikkeller, you get yet another bad check from me. However, I applaud your series idea and only wish the other 18 were available and damn it to hell wish they weren’t $9 a sample.

Pours intense deep amber with rich off-white top, light to medium lasing. Aroma - sweet, caramel with pine. Indeed IPA cause malt-caramel profile is only background for hops bitter to shine. Medium body, medium thick, watery texture, dry finish, pleasant, lasting bitter aftertaste.
