(is this the way to) Amarillo

More beer brewing pictures, today we have a fine specimen dry-hopping in the cooling Autumn air. This little number is a brown ale called "Jackie Brown" (for film buffs everywhere) and is a classic English brown ale with added American hops, in the photo you can see around 9 grams of Amarillo hops sitting in the fermenting vessel where they will soak for a couple of days before bottling. These hops were fresh from America (sent via chilled air freight from the West Coast) and from the 2016 harvest and were the most sticky, pungent hops I think I've ever used, wonderful aromas of citrus, apricot and peach fruits, I have big hopes for this brew!
