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.

Turtles (163) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2015
Tap @ Bishop Arms. Hazy copper color. The aroma is influenced by tropical fruits. The taste starts soft and sweet, pineapple and toffee. The aftertaste is sharper of pine needles and mint pastel. Creamy and smooth taste, very good balance

MMJL (182) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Zapach z butelki delikatny, chmielowy, ale powiedziałbym, że w typie nawet dosyć europejskim. Piana dosyć wysoka, średniodrobna, beżowa. Piwo jest bursztynowe, wpadające nawet w lekką miedź. Tylko lekko zamglone. Aromat ze szkła przywodzi na myśl raczej brytyjskie IPA niż jego amerykańskie odpowiedniki. Jest cytryna, a może nawet trawa cytrynowa, są pochodzące już od słodów suszone owoce. Dopiero pod koniec wyczuwam skórkę pomarańczy. W smaku jest raczej słodkie i słodowe, pojawiają się też nuty pomarańczy (nie wykluczam, że to skojarzenie zapachu, goryczki i słodkości) . Goryczka na początku wydaje się słaba, ale przyjemnie wzrasta z każdym łykiem. Wysycenie jest dosyć wysokie.

BlazerT (157) - POLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Light brown, with moca-like, densed, medium head. Medium retention. Good lacing. Mild, biscuit, caramel aroma with pine and tangerine aromas, ripe fruits aroma. The taste is semi-sweet, light to medium bitter, malty (caramel, biscuits), again ripe fruits flavours. Medium body, medium carbonation, sticky texture, finish is bitter and semi-sweet. Definetely worth trying beer for amarillo hops lovers.

DrSilverworm (7958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2014
4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Half hazy orange color. Thin off-white head, bits and ropes of lace. Citrus, tangerine, some mild caramel malt, biscuit, mild toasty spicy metallic. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. Decent interesting IPA to try. Nice citrusy hop aroma. A bit maltier and sweet, but still nice in that Mikkeller single hop way. Of course trying this fresh would be ideal, but considering the circumstance these are never too bad when I have the chance to try 4oz on tap, typically worth it to include them in a flight to try once.
