Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Kegatron on 09-20-2011

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down Virgil Gamache Farms' famed Amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year.

2013 Amarillo
(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours a crystal clear golden yellow body that has a slow carbonation and a sticky snow white head.

S- There is an earthy bright green hops aroma grows softer as it opens up.

T- The pils malt has a nice fresh taste that grows as the beer opens up and a bit more malt sweetness comes through but stays softer than the hops, which are a green fresh hop flavor that has a slight pungency in the finish. The hops take on a mint hint in the aftertaste with some slight dry field corn notes in there aswell.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel leads to a gentle fizz that compliments the hops.

O- This beer has a nice balance of fresh malt and fresh hops that makes it very drinkable and sessionable.
