Bottle. Pouts a golden with a light orange hue. Nice off-white head. Aroma is all grapefruit and a touch of malt. Quite bitter, really feeling all 70 IBUs with this one. I prefer more complex aromas out of my ipas and a bit more balance. Good, but not the cream of the crop.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve had it on draft, from a bomber, growler and minikeg - probably my favorite widely distributed IPA. Citrussy bitterness is the key flavor, while the texture has enough substance that you can’t get bored. Took out a half of the minikeg in a night no problem, and would call this my very favorite beer if the price wasn’t so damn high. You get what you pay for, though.

Heavy floral aroma. Very inviting in appearance, cloudy, golden-amber color. Medium body, somewhat above average carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish, but expected for an strong IPA.

Not yellow as advertised but instead an opaque orange color with a nice initial head. The name of this beer always made me avoid it despite the fact that it was a Rogue product, but glad I gave it a shot. Right up there with the best of Rogue brews, nice citrus flavor, although the aftertaste is a bit bitter, even for an IPA. Overall, though, well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from LCBO. I like Amarillo. Although the orange potential taste was not fully realized by me, this is a very nice drinking IPA. Well malted, and about the standard bitterness for American IPAs these days. Good looking head on golden yellow body. Bit above average mouthfeel. Satisfying.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, courtesy of ritzkiss. Clear copper gold pour with a thin veil of white foam. Nice grapefruit and cookie aromas, reminds me a lot of dogfish head 60 minute IPA. Taste is nice and herbal hops with a slightly overdone bitter finale, lacks a bit of malt sweetness. Overall very drinkable IPA.
