Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Musty hop aroma bears notes of dank pine, boozy orange and a bit of spice.

T- Flavor isn't as aggressive as the aroma. The citrus is softer, as is the booze, and the malt presence is such that it provides enough sweetness and body to not detract from the hops. Solid bitterness ties everything together.

M- A bit oily and not as much hop bite as expected. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A more old school approach to the DIPA. Kind of reminds me of Lagunitas' hop profiles that emphasize malt balance and sweetness along with the generous amount of resinous hops.

It is a mostly clear gold with a very large, long lasting, off white foamy head. Lots of lacing. Exceptional looking brew. S

Kind of boozy smelling for under 9%. Otherwise, pungent hops, grapefruit, pine, and sweet malts.

It is loaded with flavor. Crisp grapefruit, tangerine/orange, and mango on the citrus side with some resinous pine and slightly herbal green on the other. Sweet caramel malts provide some balance. A solid, lingering bitterness.

Pretty drying/ raw feel. It is not gentle. Could use a touch more body. I would say it is on the far lighter end of medium. It is still fairly creamy and very resinous. A lot more great aspects than not.

In a state full of killer hoppy beers it is easy to see how some slip through the cracks, but I'm not sure how or why I have not heard any talk of this one. It is extremley similar to Revolutions Unsessionable. Just dialed back a hair. I will be grabbing more of these.
