wow, 3 fingers of goodness, perfectly constructed micro bubbles slowly meld into each other, lots of carbonation going nuts in this causing the yeast to make this look like some sort of beer snow globe (sans the tacky winter scene), a hazy burnt orange hue, and just like the sorachi I just had the head forms a cap/plateau in the top middle of the crown, lacing is super, damn, this is one fine lookin' beer!
toasted caramel with herbal tones but not much else.. usually amarillo is a bit more aggressive/distinct
this almost mirrors the sorachi ace I had earlier, except this has a bit more bite in terms of lip smacking freshness, it 'snaps' in a sense, it drinks lighter than sorachi but still within range for the style for sure, definitely has a nice bitter edge to it especially in the after glow, this drinks like a europeanized-APA if there is such a beast, it has some euro tasting qualities but a much more pronounced bitterness... not the same you would expect from amarillo hops here from my experience.
has some punch, it seems mild and meek but packs a subtle punch. Enjoyable if not sneaky. pretty good.

poured from 12 oz glass to saxo tulip glass
A:poured dark golden brown. slightly murky with a tan/khaki head about 2 fingers that lingered around for awhile
S: great stone fruit/caramalized pineapple/tropical citrus
T:fairly deep almost roasty malty hoppy. almost a pure cane sugar cola syrup after taste
M:good mouthfeel, thin enough to be easy, thick enough to hang around long enough to not overstay its welcome
O: good beer, would drink again for sure
