Amarillo Hop Pellets - 1 oz (28 g)
Aroma: Floral, tropical and citrus (lemon, orange and grapefruit) characteristics.
|Description:||There are very popular hop varieties and then there’s Amarillo, which sits in a class of its own. A proprietary variety that was released only recently, Amarillo has taken the world of craft brewing by storm, and it certainly lives up to the hype.
It is considered a dual-purpose hop with substantial alpha acid content to lend a nice and bold bitterness to the beer. However, Amarillo is prized among brewers exclusively for its unique aroma, which is characterized by a very pronounced fresh orange fruit bouquet that delivers a refreshing twist to any beer its brewed with. Certainly a great hop for American Pale Ale and IPA, Amarillo can also be used in Bitters, Wheat Beers and Porters.
