Amarillo Hop Pellets 1 oz
AMARILLO® VGXP01 c.v. is one of those legendary varieties and is now in the top 10 most widely used hops. It was developed by Virgil Gamache Farms in the Yakima Valley and was originally named VGXP01 cv. Amarillo® offers solid bittering properties in the 9-11% Alpha Acid range and it packs one of the highest myrcene oil contents (60-70% of total oils) of any hop. This gives it a very sweet citrus flavor and aroma that is closer to oranges than grapefruit. The citrus character is backed by some light floral notes as well as melon and peaches. AMARILLO® VGXP01 c.v. tends to have lower yields, but is extremely resistant to downy and powdery mildew.

  • Millennium is the product of a cross breeding of Nugget and Columbus hops in

  • 1989. It originates from the Pacific Northwest. Millennium hops were bred for
  • higher tolerance to mildew, higher cone production per acre, and higher storage
  • capabilities than other American bittering hop varieties at the time.

    Millennium hops are very similar to Nugget hops in aroma and flavor. Some

  • descriptors included floral, resiny, and a bit spicy/herbal.

    Often used for bittering of American Ales and IPAs.
