Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.
A- Poured a clear orange color with tons of streaming carbonation and frothy white head that left glass-coating lace.
S- Lots of bright citrusy and floral hops with cracker malt backbone. Not a very strong aroma, but very crisp hop character that is very well balanced with the malt character.
T- Lots of bright citrusy and floral hops with a nice cracker malt backbone with notes of bread and caramelized sugar.
M- Very crisp, dry, refreshing, light bodied, and prickly carbonation.
O- This is a simple and incredibly enjoyable summer ale. The bright and delicate hop character blends perfectly with the malt character.

Appearance: clear deep amber with a semi-durable, frothy bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.
Aroma: herbal/floral hops with a good bit of biscuit malts.
Flavor: Hop intensity in this “summer style” ale is about that of a typical APA. Fruity/herbal hops with hints of citrus. The hop load is higher than the flavor level of the malt base. Mild+ bitterness.
Feel: Lively medium carbonation. Near medium body.

Brilliant deep golden with copper highlights and a frothy cream head. Aroma is zesty, with grass, light floral notes, and that signature Amarillo savory character. There's a hint of bready malt. Flavor is slightly fruity, likely attributable to specialty malt, with floral, perfumey notes, a touch of citrus, and a grassy, almost piney, earthy, crisp finish. Very clean and refreshing, though the perfumey character is somewhat overwhelming.
