Deep golden hue to the body; dense creamy and frothy head with rings of foam lining the glass. Warm and sweet aroma; light caramel; pine resin. Excellent flavors; light malt presence with a spritely hop bitternes; herbal and pine sap notes. Medium-light body; crisp and tingly; primarily dry throughout.

This is, perhaps, the finest session beer I've had. Incredibly flavorful and full body.

Poured from 12 ounce can into a tulip glass

Smell: Noticeable citrus aroma.
Taste: Very refreshing smooth citrus taste. This beer goes down very easily.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied beer with moderate carbonation.

A slightly hazy transparent gold, with a creamy white head. Good retention and lacing.
Bright and floral aroma of spraying grapefruit and orange zest, pineapple, grapefruit juice and orange juice, a bit of lemon, toast, and pine.
Great taste of pungent citrus and floral. Zesty and oily grapefruit, orange and lemon; toasted biscuit, pine, and fresh green grass. Tart, zippy, and bright. Clean, crisp, and lightly bitter.
Light mouthfeel, almost watery, but well carbonated and thirst-quenching.
One of the best session IPAs in my experience. Incredibly refreshing and well-made.

Spiegelau ipa glass. Pkgd Nov. 12, 2018. Consumed Nov. 29, 2018.

A: A light orange coloring has a good clarity factor with a centralized source of effervesce. An off white head adorns atop providing a slight covering, that was shortly lasting, while providing a slight ring band of lacing around the vessel.

S: Fresh citrus was dripping wet on the nose, juicy with some pine indications. Damp floral along with some fresh tropical, pineapple, mingles with a light citrus-lime mention. Good strength overall some damp oranges and floral blossoms on the fade.

T: Bright and tart flavor, tangy oranges has some slightly dry floral leaf hopping to compliment. Some pine and sweet grains, with a light dry citrus grind finish. The distinct bright orange glow comes on strong mid-drink, some dank hop appeal, with a finish of dry peach and fruity floral.

M: Light mouthful, session style, some honey grains, smooth feel, with a medium stickiness. Lightly creamy, good depth as it builds.

O: A nice wet hop experience from a session that offers a bright burst of single hop Amarillo offers a wide variety of flavors. Brightly hopped, very strong drinkability, and respect in regards to its 4.1% abv. Fades of tropical floral.
