Amarillo BrilloAmarillo Brillo
Notes: 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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It has an amber body. It has about four inches of off-white head.

S - I get some citrus and pine. I also smell some caramel malt.

T - The hops taste seems faded letting the caramel malt come through. It has a slight pine finish.

M - Medium

O - Disappointed. I think the Anderson's in Sylvania sold me an old beer. I don't see a date on the bottle, so I am just going by a guess.

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.
