Yakima Valley Hops - Amarillo


Description: "AMARILLO® IS ONE OF THOSE LEGENDARY VARIETIES AND IS NOW IN THE TOP 10 MOST WIDELY USED HOPS. IT WAS DEVELOPED BY VIRGIL GAMACHE FARMS IN THE YAKIMA VALLEY AND WAS ORIGINALLY NAMED VGXP01 CV. AMARILLO® OFFERS SOLID BITTERING PROPERTIES IN THE 9-11% ALPHA ACID RANGE AND IT PACKS ONE OF THE HIGHEST MYRCENE OIL CONTENTS (60-70% OF TOTAL OILS) OF ANY HOP. THIS GIVES IT A VERY SWEET CITRUS FLAVOR AND AROMA THAT IS CLOSER TO ORANGES THAN GRAPEFRUIT. THE CITRUS CHARACTER IS BACKED BY SOME LIGHT FLORAL NOTES AS WELL AS MELON AND PEACHES. AMARILLO® TENDS TO HAVE LOWER YIELDS, BUT IS EXTREMELY RESISTANT TO DOWNY AND POWDERY MILDEW. BALLISTIC IPA BY ALE ASYLUM AND ROGUE'S YELLOW SNOW IPA ARE BOTH SINGLE-HOPPED AMARILLO BEERS. AROMA: CITRUS-LIKE, MORE ORANGE THAN GRAPEFRUIT, FLORAL "
