Amarillo Hops 100g
Amarillo (USA) (Whole Leaf Hops) - Alpha 8.64% - 2019 Harvest 100g
Amarillo is a relatively new American hop variety that has been described as "super cascade." The bitterness is between 5 and 11% AAU, making Amarillo a good hop for flavour and aroma additions. The flavour profile is very citrusy, especially leaning toward a distinct orange flavour and aroma. I also find Amarillo to be somewhat sweet until it mellows out in a beer. This hop was reportedly discovered and introduced by Virgil Gamache Farms Inc. and resulted as a mutation of another hop variety.
