4.7 / 5.034 ReviewsUS Amarillo Pellet HopsOne of the best hops for IPA!July 29, 2016Very distinct aromaI love the distinct citrusy and floral aroma that amarillo hops offer. I very frequently use these as late additions in my American pale ales.December 16, 2012Go-to hop for alesOrdered Amarrilo hops to use in a farmhouse ale and an IPA. Order arrived quickly, and the hops and other products were all included.July 30, 2016Love these hopsI love to use these hops, especially for dry hopping. They have a great citrus and fruit aroma. Like another reviewer mentioned, they pair great with cascade if you want extra hop and citrus flavor. A little more expensive but well worth it.January 31, 2013Terrific aromaI used these in an Amarillo Pale Ale a couple of months ago, and they were perfect for the style. The aroma is citrusy and floral . Next time I will try dry hopping with them.February 10, 2013Awesome flavor and aromaPerfect in teh Amarillo Pale Ale ALL-GRAIN Kit. Use small amounts for a nice citrusy flavor. It's got a great aroma. If you use too much the flavor can be too intense, and add a Cinnamon taste.February 23, 2013Fantastic dry hop additionAs a brewer who does nothing but pale ales for my house beer I absolutely love these hops. Great for dry hopping, great with other APA hops, and great on their own. House APA is 50% Amarillo and I'm starting to like them more than Cascade.March 12, 2013Must have in stockOne of those hops I just need in my fridge at all times. Expensive here unless ya buy in better quantities and they seem to break up their pounds into ounces on site like dealers....ounces packs seem repackaged. Always fresh though so I can't complain, since I'm still saving on grain at Midwest.March 16, 2013get'em while you canBeing an IPA fan I first met these hops brewing a 60 minute IPA clone, perfect for the job used them for both primary and secondary (dry hopping) phases and they worked great for both very popular lately so get a few extra ounces so you have them during the inevitable dry spells that way when you are struck with inspiration during a dry spell you can go to your secret stash and create to your hearts content I keep my hops in a .50 cal. ammo can lined with a heavy plastic bag and I toss in a small hot hands hand warmer cause they only work in the presence of oxygen, so the can is airtight and the hand warmer will use up all the o2 in the can and prevent any oxidation and along with the first class packaging and shipping from Midwest and removing all the o2 they will be as fresh as the day you received themMarch 21, 2013Great AromaAmarillo is a wonderful mid to late hop addition for a lot of beer styles. This hop brings a great aroma to your beer with a nice floral taste. I use this hop a lot in red ales as I like the floral character it gives to maltier beers.March 30, 2013
