2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think we all know how tasty a beer with Amarillo hops can be, at least those of us that tried Oppigårds Amarillo Spring last year. Personally I find Amarillo to be one of my favourite hops. But unfortunately this one turned out to be a disappointment, it lacked both hop aroma and bitterness. I also found an off flavour of cheese in the smell. The quality also seems to differ since one of my bottles tasted of dill and wet cardboard. However I hope that was just me being unlucky so the score is from the good bottle I got.

Trevlig humledoft, men alltför tunn och vattnig vätska. Fruktig smak men något kort eftersmak.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Low greyish-blond head. Body is foggy orangey amber. The hop aroma is more resinous and earthy than fruity. I’ve expected a more prominent Amarillo character. Light sweet, light toasted malts in the background. Medium body with a cream-ish texture. Solid hop bitterness, along with a medium sweet, light peppery malt foundation. Some fruity flavoring hops too, but not enough for my likings. Straightforward hop bitter ending. Drinks ok without standing out.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Beautiful hazy copper, medium head. Nose is malts, taste is malts, finish is malts with some lingering hops. Disappointing, as I thought this would be a single hop version of the excellent IPA of yesteryear,
