Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a touch of haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a finger of pillowy ivory foam; I think it looks quite attractive.

Smell: strong, bright, citrusy Amarillos on top of a lightly sweet malt base. Uncomplicated, but enticing.

Taste: medium-sweet malt with plenty of fruity, citrusy and ever so slightly floral flavor in the middle. Bitterness is quite low, although hop flavor is just spot-on. I just love Amarillos; I could drink this all day.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess. Not bad at all for the style.

Overall: man, like I said, I could drink this all day long. The light fruitiness of the citrus character and the overall balance of hops to malt make this a seriously quaffable brew. Low bitterness makes this a little more akin to an APA than an IPA for me, but still, just a fabulous brew.

60 IBU on tap at Hopworks on 5.22.12

A - Pours a light, cloudy orange with a small off-white head that hangs around for a long time.

S - Subtle hoppy grass and citrus. Very mild, but welcoming.

T - Pine and citrus. Not a typical hop bomb, but very welcoming and fresh tasting.

D - Good carbonation and a light body.

O - A very nice IPA. Reminds me a lot of Zombie Dust. Very crisp and fresh tasting.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a fine two finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of orange and tangerine citrus, citrus hops and light sweet malt. Light to medium bodied. Flavor is as advertised for Amarillo hops, a nice orange citrus with a long citrusy bitter finish. The malt is lighter than I prefer in an IPA, but it does allow the hop variety to present itself. The lighter malt bill causes a somewhat more astringent finish, but I'm satisfied to accept that to experience the hops. I would have rated this somewhat lower strictly as an IPA, but think HUB did a great job as a hop showcase. I look forward to more from the IPX series, because I've wanted to get more experience in hop variety taste.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter. No codes or dates that I can see.

Pours bronze, clear, medium pale head. Very little visible carbonation. Smells sweetly floral.

Taste is a little dirty dishwater, a little lemon, a little sweetness. Not my favorite hop profile, but the single hop nature of this beer is what drew me to it. If this is a good example of the characteristics of Amarillo hops, I'm glad to know that it's somewhere in the middle of my scale of goodness.

Mouthfeel is light, slightly dry, and quite smooth. Overall, this is a pretty good beer, and probably quite a good beer if you love Amarillo hops.
