This divinely delicious brew is Maumee Bay Brewing Company’s assertive double India Pale Ale featuring a bouquet of Centennial, Columbus, Simcoe, and of course a hefty dose of Amarillo Hops. Delivering a delicate balance of citrus and pine hop presence with a malty sweetness, Amarillo Brillo is a pleasure to drink. Expect a raw, crisp mouthfeel with a boldness that lets you know it’s a serious brew. We suggest pouring this beer into a snifter at 50-55 degrees.

Orange colored brew with a chill haze. Aroma is the usual semi tropical fruity herb bouquet from stewed Amarillo hop pellets. The taste is quite refreshing and citrusy, with strong bitterness and tropical sustain. Orange citrus and a bit of lemon oil. Flavorful and hop forward. Medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good beer.

This was a solid but relatively unremarkable, middle of the road IPA.

I figured a beer named Amarillo Brillo would have all amarillo hops in it? Oh well. You just have to make do in life.

Kind of a somewhat earthy profile on this one. Accents of fruity esters. A decent beer.
