Bottle with Craig, consumed at mine 09-04-10 picked up at Dranken Geers, March 2010 Pours warm gold the head seemed more off white and foamy. Crisp but the a bittersweet bite, nicely balanced some pithiness from the citrus. A tasty beer but I think the Tomahawks brashness which we had before sort of affected my overall enjoyment a little with this.

This had a date on the cap of 04/4/11 so I am hoping this is a relatively fresh sample. The color is orange witha good head that laces the glass. The smell is odd, hoppy but I can’t pinpoint a specific aroma. The taste is bitter like aspirin with a hint of lemon and a decent malt going on. This was interesting and better than the Simcoe single hop I had previously from Mikkeller.

Amber, orange colored brew. Amarillo hops in the aroma, floral and pine. Huge amarillo hop flavor, lot’s of bitterness, mostly pine and citrus. Could use some more balance and more aroma hops.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is weak hops with peach and citrus. The flavor follows the nose with some fruit. The palate is bitter. Overall the flavor is better than the aroma. gam (3909) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010

Huge Grapefruit rind and pineapple bomb. Lovely dark orange pour with huge head. A bit one dimensional but shows what this hop is capable of. Pricey as we all know. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Draught at The Trappist. Hazy orange-amber with a lasting fluffy white head. The aroma os grassy and fruity, with citrus and light doughy malt. Lots of biscuity malt and grassy bitterness in the flavor with some peach and grapefruit flavors as well. Sweetness is mild, with a firm bitterness. Medium bodied with a long bitter finish. Took some time to open up, but a solid IPA. Amarillo is a nice single hop to use, though not the most complex on its own.
