Like a mixture of an ipa and a red ale, this one has some red and darker than yellow colors to it. 3/4" white head. Some pine and fruit like apple and honey smells.

Taste was tough, Amarillo is a smell hop for the most part, not so much flavoring and bitterness. Dry, body light. Good stuff, but never gonna be a repeat at a very high price point. I mean, you could have this, or Pliny for the same price (and a 500ml bottle instead of 375 essentially).

09/25/13 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

My only preconception here was that I'm not crazy about hops that don't know their place. They should be smelled but not tasted.

Not so in this instance. Perhaps it's due to the lack of competition on the tongue. From this I see exactly what Amarillo hops taste like especially when not competing for the spotlight.. Nice but once was enough.
