Slightly hazy gold with a frothy white head. I really expected more out of this because I love amarillos, but it just seemed to lack the high quality fresh hop character.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Growler from Isaac Newton’s - Newtown PA. Its been a few weeks since I had this one, but I still remember the unique citrusy-hop taste. Not the best out, but something different for this special-edition beer. Will definately try again if it is re-released

I bought the shirt when I was at KClingers (Hanover) last year. Unfortunately, they were out of the Integrity then. Thankfully, they had it on type this year. WOW, I’m glad I could finally get it. Very hoppy, pine resin, grapefruit aroma. Typical appearance, nothing out of the ordinary. This one goes down good and not too much alcohol.

HWOH growler fill from Bierkraft brought by beastiefan I think. Pours a clear light orange with a white lasting sticky head. Aroma is slight metallic malts, some light orange and apricot. Flavor is slightly grassy- metallic malts- somewhat like stale cascade, lgith crystal malt flavor and some more citrusy/lemon orange. Finishes with a lightly harsh bitterness and lively carbonation. Ok IPA.

Draft @ Mellow Mushroom West Chase, 2 pints in a row.
John’s Locker Series
A light copper body and a wispy white head. Aroma is citric, zesty, oily, with an odd array of tang. The flavor comes across in this order: cumquat, plums, melted caramel, tangerine, plums, grapefruit, vegetables, olive oil… yeah.. an odd ending right; extra virgin olive oil! The body is not abundantly carbonated but not close to being still either. There is an off hoppyness here; it seems old… an aged keg or eccentric IPA? The boldness of the IBU’s still seems like they are present… so I’m thinking that it’s the brew itself... maybe it has been sitting in a less than habitable environment? The beginning of the finish is fruity but well hopped, the finish of the finish is off… that’s where it all goes rough for me

On Tap- Horsebrass- Imp pint. Translucent honey-amber, with thin almond-colored head. Big citrus punch from the Amarillos hit the nose, and blends with fruity, estery yeast. Flavor is wonderfully long, with the initial hop burst graduating into a complex, fresh malt profile, that plays with the hop flavor and fruitiness, before the cascade of intense bittering comes through and coats the tongue. Very nearly a double IPA, and quite tasty!

Had on tap at Landmark 1850. Dark amber color. Smell of hops, citus and more hops. Tastes great! You can taste the citrus but the hops is what makes this IPA great. Nice bitter finish at the end. Wonderful lacing.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Man oh man, do the hops come out in this one. A VERY fruity flavor and a great hop finish. Another great one from Rogue.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2006 Funky yeasty aroma that I didn’t like. Doughy, bitter, tart, fairly high IBU. Dunno, I’m not inspired. Medium to medium-light body. Long bitter finish with toastiness. On tap, Ginger Man, NYC.
