12/26/16. Hey, another random IL beer! This was pretty damn good, actually. Orange pour with a nice khaki head. Nice citrus aroma, some pine and cattiness. Good flavor as well, citrus, pine, catty, a touch of dank, pale malts and a touch of caramel poke through, but not too much. Tasty!

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a wispy off white that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma of apricot, mango, melon and a bright floral character. Taste has citrus and lemon with a grassy/floral element and a light biscuit backbone. Finishes with a pronounced rind-like bitterness that builds. Light bodied with medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy, gold pour with a white head. The aroma has mild citrus hops and cereal grain. It has a light body with oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with an easy finish.

I had this at my sisters. Pours gold with a white head. Taste hoppy, mildly sweet, caramel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. On draft at the brewery on November 25. The pour is a darker golden amber color with a thick white head and some really spotty lace as it falls down. The aroma is really juicy and tropical fruit up front. There is a light bitterness and a heavy dankness to the hop. The flavor is similar. There is a bitter tropical fruit and pine resin to go with the dank hops and a little bit of urea. Im not digging this, but its not bad at all. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly resinous citrus on the back end. Its not bad at all, but Amarillo just doesnt do it for me.

12oz can. No apparent code date. Appearance: Deep golden, clear, with a low lying white head. Aroma: Grapefruit and tropical fruit hop aromas, with some pineapple. Pleasant yet a bit restrained. Taste: Light crackery maltiness with a moderately strong grassy and resinous hop bitterness. Much more of a grassy quality than the fruitiness that appears in the aroma. Mouthfeel: Body is on the lighter side but not thin, with a low to moderate carbonation. Finish: Dry with a strong grassy bitterness lingers with a touch of grapefruit that pops up retronasally. Overall: This APA is definitely on the lighter, drier, grassier side of the style, with the overal flavor profile similar to what you find in New Glarus Moon Man. Aroma is very nice but somewhat restrained. Without dating on the can Im not sure if thats due to age or just the process. A very good, refreshing APA

Draft at Famous Daves, Bolingbrook. Gotta say I agree with all the accolades. This is the most solid exemplar of its style that I can think of. A nice bouquet of piney and tangy hops that continues in the palate as well. Malt is sturdy, lightly sweet, and makes the hop bitterness all the more palatable. Some may want their uvulas scorched by excessive hoppiness, but this is the best use of Amarillos I can remember. Fully balanced and enjoyable.
