Where did the name come from? I know they were produced in Washington and how to brew with them, but I'm just curious about the name.
Hmmm I think they are a proprietary strain so we can't get plants, I imagine the guy who bred them just came up with a name.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amarillo_hops
Could always call Virgil Gamache Farms and ask them

Amarillo is Spanish for "yellow." Lupulin is yellow. I dunno.
