Beer Review: Mikkeller Amarillo Single Hop IPA

In American IPA, Reviews on September 16, 2010 at 10:28 pm

Pours a light copper/amber with an ample and frothy khaki head, of course with more sticky lace.

The glass is full of light grassy and earth tones with a hint of fruitiness, fresh flowers and caramel malt throughout.

Freshly cut grass, resinous pine, grapefruit rind and earthy hops all culminate to a bitter finish.

Bubbly mouthfeel, medium body and a bit sticky from the hop resins.

I suggest Indian, stir fry maybe spicy crab cakes.  The hop profile will play into the spice and remaining powerful enough to cut through the shellfish.

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.9%

Cheers!
