Hop Amarillo (US) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag Amarillo is a relatively new American hop variety that has been described as "super Cascade."
The bitterness is between 8 and 11%, making Amarillo a good hop for flavor and aroma
additions. The flavor profile is very citrusy, especially leaning toward a distinct orange flavor
and aroma. Amarillo is found as well to be somewhat sweet until it mellows out in a beer. It
should be used as aroma hop, but it could also be used as a bittering or a flavor hop. Proved to
be a good fit for Pale Ales and IPAs.
