Amarillo is an aroma variety of hops. The Amarillo variety, designated VGXP01 c.v., was discovered by Virgil Gamache Farms Inc. in one of their hop yards in Washington State and propagated and introduced by them as Amarillo.[1] Unlike most varieties of hops, which may be acquired and propagated by the purchase of rhizomes, Amarillo hops are privately grown only by Virgil Gamache Farms; also the organization holds a trademark on the name "Amarillo" for hops. The plant is patented.

Characteristics[edit]

  • The resultant aroma is of medium strength and very distinct.[1]
  • The aroma is described as flowery, spicy and citrus-like with a distinct orange bouquet.
  • The hop is good for flavor and aroma
  • It can also be used for bittering effectively because of the low cohumulone content
