This hop is great for ipa, iba, belgian pale. I've used it mainly in my homebrews with the aroma, taste, and dry hopping phase. Can wait to hop burst with this and citra for my next ipa.
Not sure I agree with the comparisons to Cascade; for me, this hop is more floral and somewhat non-citrus fruity than the strong grapefruit you get from Cascade. Regardless, it works very well in combination with Cascade. Excellent flavor/aroma, give it a try if you haven't yet.
Pros: Relatively high alpha acid and very nice flavor and aroma -- a little different than Cascade, and I've found it blends very well with Simcoe. Will give a American-style pale or amber ale something special. Cons: Tends to be among the more expensive varieties.
Pros: These are high alpha acid so I use them to finish for the last 4 minutes. This brings out the super flavor of the amarillo hop ;) Cons: none
Pros: My favorite hops! Use it with Maris Otter malt for a terrific summer ale.
