What the brewers say

“Funky Gold Amarillo is the second beer in our dry-hopped sour-ale series. We took our sour golden ale, Gold, and gave it a heavy dosing of Amarillo hops. The result is a beer that is a mix of tropical fruit and Prairie funk. Notes of peach, orange, white wine, and citrusy Brett can be found in the flavor and aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate tartness up front, with a nice citrus hops profile (lemon, orange, and grapefruit) and light spiciness. Some fresh hops character, but it sits in the back to the sour.”

Flavor: “Tart and refreshing. The lemon, mango, and melon fruit sweetness hits with the high sourness and tartness up front, which adds some fruit complexity. The hops provide some complexity in the middle with some spice and citrus notes. Good carbonation brings out the tartness almost to the point of being harsh, and nice refreshing finish.”

Overall: “Bold and enjoyable. This beer has layers of flavors, nice carbonation, and strong tartness without being overpowering. An explosive array of different tropical flavors with balanced tartness makes this very intriguing.”
