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.

On tap at Hopworks on Powell today.

Pouring a clear light orange with a dense, off-white head that falls off to a thin ring leaving some lacing, this looks decent. The nose is intensely citrusy - dank grapefruit pith, lemon zest, tangerine and some grass-like (vegetal) hop notes. Not much malt character is present. The palate opens bitter, herbal and mildly catty. There's plenty of citrus - lemon, grapefruit, navel oranges - as well as a mineral-like powderiness/chalkiness to the palate. Malt character is minimal, but there is a little bit of a grain husk flavor. Bitterness is moderate and enjoyable. Drying on the finish with grapefruit, carbonic acid and a little bit of a mineral character, this medium-light bodied beer is a little more carbonated that's I'd like. Solid stuff.

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.
