Usage: With respectable alpha acid content, Amarillo® can be a dual-purpose hop and contribute to bittering additions, but with its unique, highly sought-after aromas and flavors combined with high demand, it’s most often seen in late-kettle or whirlpool additions and as a dry hop. A fixture in American pale ale, IPA, and Imperial IPA formulations.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Intense and pungent. Red grapefruit overtones reminiscent of Cascade, overlaid with tropical fruit and ripe melon.
Alpha Acid content is updated regularly, but is subject to change without notice.
