22oz bomber purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $5.49. According to the label, this is best by 12/18/13, so it should still be good.
Poured a lemony-looking pale shade of gold, with a rocky, bone-white head that hung around for a while and left quite a bit of lace. Apart from a little bit of chill haze, it looked very good.
Citrusy hop aroma was featured, but not as much as I was expecting. There was also a fruity sweetness that reminded me of mangos in the background.
Bitterness, which was largely absent from the nose, made itself noted in the taste. There was also a citrus-like flavor, which was to be expected from a beer that featured Amarillo hops, but it wasn’t like the usual blast of grapefruit that I normally expect from that hop. There is some tropical fruit sweetness, but it seems to be paired up with a grassy, bitter hop flavor that might seem more at home in a pilsener.
The body was somewhere between light and medium. The mouthfeel is somewhat oily and coating.
“Featuring Amarillo hops” is what the label says, but it doesn’t explicitly state that this is a single hop beer. Judging by it’s flavor, I suspect other hops were used as well, and I’d like to know what they were. A unique experience. I liked it but I’m not sure I’d want more than one.
