4/5 rDev +8.7%
Picked this up at the beer store at the De Molen Brewery. Hazy yellow-orange pour with fluffy, white three finger head with great retention and lacing. Tropical, herbal, earthy nose with hints of grass, orange rind and caramel. The bitter, sharpness of the hops hits you immediately with the first sip. Lots of grapefruit and pine with hints of orange and lemon and a bit of green tea. The sweet caramel malt is there and adds a measure of balance, but has trouble standing up to the hops. Definitely seems like more than 30 IBU's. The mouthfeel is really sharp and tangy with a somewhat fizzy but dry finish. This is a pretty bold beer for a 4.5 ABV, and still fairly drinkable for such a harsh and bitter character. Not their best, but still a solid offering from De Molen!

Thank you Absumaster for this rare one only available back home.Amarillo orange aroma was a pleasure. Orange with a white bubbly head. Great taste, neither American than British but more of the former. Amazing at 4.5% ABV.Carbonation spot on.Average mouthfeel, yeast and malt offset to the hops.

On-tap. Pilsner glass. Golden color, veiled appearance. White foam creates a creamy crown turning in rocky flakes as dissipates. Floral, fresh yeast & grapefruit zest aromas. Herbal bitterness at first sip followed by crispy maltiness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Sharp bitterness but well balanced in the middle. Hints of resin in a long & kind bitter finish. So refreshing beer.

An amber beer with a creamy head that settles into a whipped cream-like head.
Smell of citric and grassy, resinous hops, Amarillo. Unmistakebly the American Ale yeast. A little sharp, clean, but very well fitted to go with the American hops.
Taste is balanced between hops and malt at the first sip. Mhh, bitternes is not very high and a little sharp. I would have expected this beer to be more bitter, but this is probably not ment to be an IPA. This brings me to it's body which is quite thin. At 4,5% ABV this is understandable, but it seems to take the beer out of balance. This leaves bitterness sharp and there is nothing else to support this bitterness. Malt is completely overpowered by the hoppy taste. Amarillo is a nice hop though. Bitterness is kicking in now halfway the glass. Maybe my mouth is starting to numb, but it is getting better every sip.

A: Served a hazy copper color with a moderate head and god lacing.
S: Aroma of fresh grain, with a bit of citrus and herbs.
T: First sip is initially tart with a bit of citrus, then some caramel sweetness. Continues with a pleasant bitterness and a dry finish.
F: Fairly light body, smooth and a bit creamy. Interesting texture.
O: Nice beer, good for a few. Sort of reminds me of an English Bitter. Worth a try.

Pours a hazy amber color with a tan head that fades leaving a nice amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell is earthy, and has some clove to it.
Taste, it's still a bit to cold, but it starts out a little watery up front with some leather hints then comes in the hops but the flavor doesn't stay it fades quickly to a earthy caramel taste that finishes a tad dry but very smooth.
Great session beer, has good flavor with a small amount of alcohol.

s33cl bottle of brown glass with classic pressure cap poured into a La Chouffe glass in Gouda, Holland. Acquired straight from De Molen. Reviewed live.
A: Three finger head of slight cream and fair thickness. Retention is fair. Dark nontransparent copper-gold.
Sm: Bittering hops and amber hops. Mild strength scent.
T: Amber and bittering hops are nicely balanced without venturing too much into IPA territory. Very well built and balanced. Complex. Some cream and well handled barley complementing the amber hops.
Mf: Smooth, wet, and not overly thick. Complements the flavours of the body.
Dr: Average ABV, very high drinkability, and a fair price make this a beer every beer fanatic ought to try.

On tap at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam.
Pours cloudy tarnished gold with plenty of sticky white foam that leaves one finger at the top while also sheeting like crazy. Nose is pure sticky orange and herbal fresh hops - explosive, must be dry hopped. Apricot hard candy malts followed by orange juice and aspirin hops. Herbal finish, sweet comeback. Light, some cling, crisp.
Straight up APA with interesting tweaks to hop profile. +.5 to drinkability for reasonable ABV. Glad to stay on this for a while.

This brew pours a cloudy light orange hue with exceptional carbonation that leaves behind a very frothy three finger head with heaps of lacing everywhere and yeah it looks impressive,and the smell is too with big massive tropical hints of pineapple,mangoes,paw paw and strong piney hops a very impressive aroma,the mouthfeel is light to medium bodied but definately leaning more towards light and averagely carbonated with tastes of mainly citrus,lychee,light pineapple and finishes with a piney,passionfruit hop bitterness that really isnt that bitter at all and obviously being at its very low ABV this bottle will be no worries to knock back at all,overall it really has one of best smells going around this brew and the taste is quite nice but i really think the mouthfeel lets this down and i hate to say it but it really should be higher in ABV cheers.

Reviewed from notes - thanx to Adam @ Platinum
Pours a light amber/orange two finger head that stays n stays - great looking.
Massive aromas of barnyard funk going on - note at odds with style and other reviewers.
Taste is same. Hugely complex, Hops n lemonade n malt all blended in - sours as well.
Mouthfeel light as per ABV.
Wish I could have reviewed live but was in company.... very interesting beer, and trul ywell made to get this much flavour from 4.5% - a lesson to all !!!

A thick, off-white head on top of a cloudy orange/amber colored brew.
Aroma is very hoppy indeed, in a way that is reminiscent of lemon and grapefruit or pine apple. Malt presence is moderate and has a caramel sweetness. Yeast works its way through as well and might be the cause for the slight sharp edge that is perceived.
At first, the taste is almost like that of grape fruit juice. A malty flavour follows that eventually leads up to a dry and pretty intense hop flavour. Yeast is defining as well and is constantly interwoven with the beer's texture, which is somewhat dull. Some more carbonation would be welcome.
This beer makes it clear immediately how Amarillo tastes and smells. In doing so it runs the risk of becoming one-sided.
