Description

Amarillo® hops enjoy a special place of adoration in the hearts of brewers. Often described as a supercharged version of Cascade. Bursting with floral, tropical, and citrus (lemon, orange and grapefruit) characteristics, but it has a distinctive Orange character to it that is very different from Cascade. An excellent choice of super hoppy beer styles like Hazy IPA or West Coast IPA, Pale Ales, or Hoppy Lagers. But really, it's an excellent addition to any beer where you want citrus flavors to pop.

Amarillo hops are a great late addition hop in my DIPAs. They provide a sustained lemon and citrus note that doesn't overpower the malt backbone.

Fantastic Dry Hop
I've fallen in love with these Amarillo hops. I've been adding them as dry hop additions the the American Pale Ale II and Columbus IPA kits. 1/2 to 1 oz works great for me. I found that Amarillo plus Centennial in the Columbus IPA is a great combo. When dry hopping the very first thing you notice when drinking the beer is the initial aroma before taking a sip. Amarillo gives off this dreamy floral/fruity scent that begins your euphoric journey in the beer glass. I also notice it really "juices" up the citrus flavor. It also pairs nicely with the Blood Orange Candi Syrup. Just huge orange flavor and aroma. Your taste buds will thank you for choosing Amarillo hops.

Nice Hops, good citrus smell and flavor
These hops are great if you want a citrus smell and flavor for your beer. The are mostly orange which is a nice change to the lemon and grapefruit of other citrus hops.
