Pours clear golden orange with a big white head. Nose is grapefruit, caramel and some spice. Taste is sweet with a nice bitter background, but I should think it should be the other way around. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish.

On tap at the Hopleaf. Pours orange, not hazy nor brilliant, somewhere in between. The aroma is grapefruit and pine, but not very strong. The taste is a balanced IPA and Iím disappointed the Amarillo doesnít come through more. Average carbonation and light body. Overall I was not too impressed as I had my expectations high for some amarillo goodness, but it still is a decent run of the mill IPA.

JulienHuxley (2988) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2012
On tap at Milkboy bar in Philly. Gold pour with frothy white head. Aroma of very fruity hops, typical Amarillo, tropical fruit galore. Taste is well balanced, dry and hoppy, bitter finish but not overly resinous. Tasty IPA.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Aroma of citrus, oak and pine resin. Pours hazy orange with a small sudsy head. Taste is clean with notes of orange peel, grapefruit juice, and malts. Mouthfeel is clean and bitter. Great IPA.

Damico (2547) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours beautiful hazy golden orange with a creamy white head. Aroma brings notes of oranges from the hops, juicy but lighter. Flavor is similar, juicy citrus orange flavor and bitter hops come to settle smoothly on the palate.

Tap at The Big Hunt in DC. The pour is a hazy light gold with a thin, creamy head. Mild lace. Nose is slightly off with cheese and loads of lemon juice. Taste is soapy, lemon, bitter. Thinner in the palate than the Chinook with significantly less nutty and high alpha acid bitterness and more lemon/zesty bitterness. More sessionable than the Chinook, but I didnít enjoy this quite as much. Easily could have been damaged by Big Huntís notoriously bad tap lines.
