Alpha Acid Range % 8.0 – 11.0
Washington, USA. Also known as VGXP01 and is exclusively managed by Virgil Gamache Farms of Toppenish, WA, where it was originally found growing wild in 1998.
With 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 flavors 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.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics:
Intense and pungent. Red grapefruit overtones reminiscent of Cascade, overlaid with tropical fruit and ripe melon.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
