I get a general Fruity/Juicy/Floral Citrus, mostly mild Grapefruit. Not the sharp grapefruit we see in Cascade.

Never blame an ingredient for a mistake the brewer made. 2.5 oz of amarillo can make for a wonderful aroma, though 2 weeks on dry hops can make for some funny aromas. Also, I'm not a fan of warrior anywhere after the 60 min mark. It's generally considered as a bittering only variety.

I make Yoopers Haus Pale Ale. It's all cascade, from bittering to dry. Tastes great to me (it's my house pale ale too, thanks Yoop).

Maybe I got some "bad" Amarillo. Came from hops direct. Hard to say.

It's hard to say. Maybe you're just not a huge fan of Am's. I've always had good results and this most recent batch is the only time I though that I overdid Amarillo. I've done all amarillo IPA, with a big (but short) dry hop and really enjoyed it. It was like orange/tangerine marmalade.

i made a half-batch of amarillo/optic SMaSH that was a delicious grapefruit bomb (http://hopville.com/recipe/1323302). dry-hopped with the equivalent of 1.75 oz/5 gallons. big success.

i got a LOT of grapefruit, too. i'm wondering if it's a yearly variation - depends on amount of rain, sunshine, heat, etc. my amarillo is from the 2011 crop.

I got a ton of grapefruit from the '11 crop. I did a SNPA clone but with amarillo in place of cascade and it was like grapefruit juice. So far, the '12 crop has given me tangerine/orange juice and less of that grapefruit. Could be a difference in crops, or in where they were grown.

I did a pale ale recently dry hopped with .5 oz warrior and 1.5 oz cascade, and I thought it was fantastic. To each their own.
