Dont know the batch size for reference but 1/2 an ounce as a flame-out addition doesn't seem like much. The last brew (10 Gallon batch) I used these hops in had 1.0oz @25min, 1.5oz @10min, 2.0oz at flame-out for a whirpool and 2.5oz for dry hop. Amarillo wasn't the only hop; I also used Chinook and Cascade but there was a significant qty of Amarillo!

The brew was delicious and wasn't grassy at all nor did it have any odd flavors like garlic and such. Maybe I just got lucky with my shipment and/or perhaps there's other things influencing the off flavors others report.

Again, I don't think 2013 was as aromatic as 2012 but it's proved to be a usable hop for me!

I should say I also brewed a wheat with it and the beer was pretty bad one of my worst

Agreed that the aroma is lacking on last year's and the flavor doesn't seem to have the same punch, however I haven't found them to be grassy at all.

This thread popped up in my feed and reminded me to report on the 2013 Amarillo hops I have. Just made a SMASH IPA with them, utilizing in boil, whirlpool and dry hop. Tastes great!
