Discovered by Virgil Gamache Farms, Amarillo® is one of the top ten aroma varieties utilized by craft brewers. It features relatively high alpha acids along with extremely high levels of myrcene for citrus and grapefruit flavors.
This American hop varietal is both good for bittering and has amazing aromatics, making it a versatile, dual purpose brewing ingredient. Commonly added to all types of IPAs from American to Belgian and Imperial IPA’s, AMARILLO® hops are also a great addition to American Pale Ales. An alpha acid range from 8% to 11% presents a moderate bittering quality while lush floral and orangey citrus aromas add fresh flavor to any type of beer.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags.
