A varietal of Virgil Gamache Farms, Inc., Amarillo® VGXP01 c.v. was discovered to be a mutation from another variety. Its ultra-high myrcene content creates a delicious orange citrus flavour. A respectable alpha acid content, Amarillo® can be a dual-purpose hop and contribute to bittering additions, but with its unique, highly sought-after aromas and flavours combined with high demand, it’s most often seen in late-kettle or whirlpool additions and as a dry hop. A fixture in American pale ale, IPA, and Imperial IPA formulations.
Intense and pungent. Red grapefruit overtones reminiscent of Cascade, overlaid with tropical fruit and ripe melon.
