look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
From a 330 ml brown bottle, abv. listed at 6.9%. Pours out a hazed light amber hue, tall spongy white head with excellent retention.
Mild toasty grains on the aroma, floral and perfumey notes, fresh hay, tangerine, pomelo, dry pith.
That malt sits lightly in the background of the flavour, hinting at toast and caramel, while the Amarillo delivers with dried spicy orange rind, floral notes, and dry, astringent pith. A spike of sweet orange punctuates the last traces of the finish, while the dry citrus continues on into the aftertaste.
Medium-light bodied mouthfeel, slick texture with moderate carbonation.
Now then, Amarillo are one of my favourite hop varietals, and on their own are quite good, however it's when they are partnered with other certain types of hops that they truly excel, by enhancing and accentuating the combination. That being said, in this single hop IPA they're enjoyable, but are only capable of going so far on their own, which means this IPA is decent based on the hop content alone, yet nothing noteworthy beyond that.

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
