My go to for pairing dry hops
Mosaic, citra, galaxy. Great hops. But they get better paired with ElDorado. The candy and pineapple notes are nice enhancers in hazy ipa style beers.

El D!
Eldorado has to be my favorite hop, I frequently get blueberry flavors out of it in my brews. Fantastic hop and great service from Morebeer! Thanks!

Great Quality!
The hops were fresh and had a nice pungent aroma of citrus/tangerine orange smell. The flavor profile from the 30 minute hop stand was delicious sweet orange without any pithy or astringent bitterness.

Excellent aroma
I love this hop variety! Used as the sole hop it in an IPA with a simple grain bill and it turned out incredible. However, the aa% was lower that anticipated at 9.02% so I had to use all 8oz in a batch to hit my targets. Keep this in mind! When ordering hops without specific info on your package, round up. Other than that I figure it's a good deal, price was good. Will buy more.

Big fan of El Dorado!
Just used El Dorado hops for the first time in an Brown IPA, and was very pleased w/the end result. Strong stone fruit (cherries), and candy aroma. I used for aroma/flavor, and also dry hopped.
Will definitely use again, especially in darker and maltier beers
