ROY FARMS Amarillo®

VGXP01 c.v. Developed by Virgil Gamache Farms. All rights reserved.

A VARIETY THAT PACKS A SWEET PUNCH.

Some would say legendary, others would say a classic. Amarillo is a go-to hop variety with its citrus-like flavor, light stone fruit and floral characteristics. Amarillo® packs one of the highest myrcene oil contents of any hop, which gives it a very sweet citrus flavor and an aroma that is closer to oranges than grapefruit. Plus, it offers solid bittering properties in the 9%-11% alpha acid range. You can be confident you’re purchasing the highest-quality Amarillo hops directly from Roy Farms with our unwavering commitment to sustainable farming and growing practices, as well as the 113 harvests under our belt with the best people in the business.
