Amarillo® hops have become super popular with microbrewers. Brewers are describing the flavor and aroma as a supercharged version of Cascade. Floral, tropical, and citrus (lemon, orange and grapefruit) characteristics. However, it has a distinctive Orange character to it that is very different from Cascade. Supply has been very limited the last few years so make sure to buy some while it is available.

Fantastic Dry Hop
I've fallen in love with these Amarillo hops. I've been adding them as dry hop additions the the American Pale Ale II and Columbus IPA kits. 1/2 to 1 oz works great for me. I found that Amarillo plus Centennial in the Columbus IPA is a great combo. When dry hopping the very first thing you notice when drinking the beer is the initial aroma before taking a sip. Amarillo gives off this dreamy floral/fruity scent that begins your euphoric journey in the beer glass. I also notice it really "juices" up the citrus flavor. It also pairs nicely with the Blood Orange Candi Syrup. Just huge orange flavor and aroma. Your taste buds will thank you for choosing Amarillo hops.
Columbus IPA dry hopped with 1/2 oz Amarillo and 1/2 oz Millenium hops.

Nice Hops, good citrus smell and flavor
These hops are great if you want a citrus smell and flavor for your beer. The are mostly orange which is a nice change to the lemon and grapefruit of other citrus hops.

Great Hop
These had an extremely fresh aroma when received, but not too vegetable or grassy.
