Oh, hi there!

Best before 4/26 so I barely made it on this bad boy.

Just to get down to the nitty gritty, this is a real pleasant beer. You won't jump through flaming hula hoops and moats filled with alligators to get to it like a romp with Miranda Kerr, but it's solid enough. It's musty, but we'll call it a nostalgic musty like your granddaddy's closet. There also is a slight tinge of caramel which is tasty, unlike a GMO riddled KitKat.

Good. Pleasant. And ok for the mood.

Amarillo Showers
American IPA
8.8% ABV
95 IBU

APPEARANCE: Poured a deep golden amber with a nice fat white head. Very good retention and nice lacing.

AROMA: Great hoppy aroma with nice sweetness from grapefruit. Getting cantaloupe, pineapple hints of pine.

TASTE: Follows the nose nicely, I do get peach which I didn't pull out in the aroma. Nice bright citrus with that wonderful west coast pine resin. Bit of caramel and toffee with some malty sweetness rounding it out.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Prickly mouthfeel with a dry finish.

OVERALL: Nice enjoyable easy drinking high ABV ipa.

RATING: 3.5/5 Zombie Heads!

22oz bottle from JayORear (thanks Jay!). Drink before 4/26/14 so I'm guessing this was bottled 2/26/14. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a two finger cap of frothy near white head. A healthy halo of froth remains and leaves a good bit of lace.

Aromas are soft but pleasant. Mandarin, grapefruit, peach and perhaps just a hint of caramel. Despite how seemingly mild the nose is, I keep going back and enjoying it.

Flavors are bright and citrusy. Orange, cantaloupe, pineapple, subtle peach, pine, hints of caramel, a little bit of cracker and an ocassional whisper of alcohol. The ease that this goes down belies it's near 9% abv. Very smooth with lucious layers of fruity hops.

An almost oily slick, medium full feel with moderate carbonation. Orange, peach fuzz and vaguely floral finish.

This is the second in this series that I've been fortuate enough to try and it's another winner from Noble. The malt bill is near perfect- heavy enough to give some sweetness and body but subtle enough to allow the hops to be the star. This is case study worth investigating.
