ROY FARMS El Dorado®

A premium hop released in 2010 from CLS Farms, LLC of Moxee, Washington. All rights reserved.

BURSTING WITH JUICY FRUIT AROMAS.

CLS Farms, in the Yakima Valley region, released this exciting and juicy variety in 2010. El Dorado is bursting with tropical aroma notes, and is an exceptional dual-purpose hop with high alpha acid and intense flavors. High alpha acids make this an effective and efficient bittering hop, but it can also be used in late additions to maximize the fresh, fruity aroma and flavor. When used in later additions, El Dorado brings bright tropical flavors and aromas of pineapple, pear, watermelon and stone fruit. You can be confident you’re purchasing the highest-quality El Dorado hops directly from Roy Farms with our unwavering commitment to sustainable farming and growing practices, as well as the 113 harvests under our belt.
