Hops - AMARILLO Pellets

  • 309


ALL LOCATIONS!

Fruity and unmistakable - Amarillo is an American original.

Breeding/Development: Washington, USA. Also known as VGXP01 and is exclusively managed by Virgil Gamache Farms of Toppenish, WA, where it was originally found growing wild in 1998.

Brewing Application: 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 flavours 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.

Sensory: Intense and pungent. Red grapefruit overtones reminiscent of Cascade, overlaid with tropical fruit and ripe melon.

Alpha Acid Range: 8.0-11.0%


Botanical Classification:
Family: Cannabaceae
Genus: Humulus
Species: Lupulus
