Dark golden with a white head that lasted for a while.
Fresh fruity aroma with passionfruit, peach, caramel, perfume and grass. The taste was about the same. A lot of carbonation, medium body. Pleasant and very drinkable. Hoppy and bitter aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012
2012-05-10, bottle, 5.9% ABV, 8-5-7-3-15=38
Bright amber color. Aroma of caramel and demerara sugar, with a hint of cookies and lemon; perfumy. Dry mouthfeel, but the body is quite chewy, with solid caramel flavor and a touch of toffee; strong bitterness, with bitter citrus fruits (orange and bergamot) more than fresh fruits (no grapefruit, no lemon).
A very good beer, although I prefer crispier malts with single hops.
2011-05-20, draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg, 5.5% ABV, 8-5-8-5-16=42
Amber color, with nice head. The strong hop aroma is first fruity, then sweaty. Dry mouthfeel; strong caramel malt and toffee flavor; resiny and fruity hopping, fresh.
2009-10-20, draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, as 7th Anniversary Ale, 5.9% ABV, 9-5-7-3-15=39
Hazy copper color; big creamy head. The aroma of Amarillo is massive, fruity (a lot of passion fruit and some oranges), lightly piney and grassy; the excellent impact is not lasting, though. The body is thinner than expected; clean toffee flavor, quite dry the first sip, smoother the others; unexpected, almost immediately a sharp metallic touch spoils the experience; this thing vanishes a bit, then. The final is obviously bitter, dry, weak bodied, with some resins and very light fruits. I would clearly prefer a sweeter, maltier beer. Unfinished.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber colour with a fresh looking white head that leaves nice lazing behind. Aroma is extremely tropical and piney hops with notes of passionfruit, peach, tangerine and pineapple. Also light caramell is noticable but hardly. Flavour is similar to the aroma but overall lighter, it doesnt quite deliver the hop punch the extremely fresh nose promises. Still flavourfull and very pleasant though, rich (for a APA) with just a small malty caramell sweetness. Simple but oh so good and extremely drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Örebro Öl- och Whiskeyfestival. Clear deep golden, small head. Very distinctive Amarillo aroma - perfumy lychee and grapefruit. Mid-sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel,. Growing piney bitterness. A seemless hop bomb, where the blast in the aroma just carries on over the flavour and finish.
Earlier Rating: 9/24/2009 Total Score: 4.2
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear deep golden, small head. Perfumy nose with gooseberry and rhubarb. Mid-sweet with dense rounded malt forming a mid sized body hidden underneath tropical fruits. Fresh and perfumy with balanced bitterness. Another winner from Oppigårds!
