In fact yes! They were quite prominent in the dry hop. True to the description they created a distinct berry flavor. It really created the perception of a sweet honey flavor even though it fermented quite dry. My ipa is almost done dry hopping with a combination of Legacy and Cascade so ill update that too!

Thanks for the update! I have a wheat pale fermented warm with Kolsch yeast, so it's dry and fruity...was planning on Cascade/Willamette, but I might have to try the Cascade/Legacy...sounds perfect. Wish I had 2.5g carboys for a split batch!!

I know how you feel. I only have the NB basic homebrew set plus a carboy. If you want that deep berry flavor then you won't be disappointed with Legacy. Even though I only dry hopped it it had a huge amount of flavor. I didn't find it to be very citrusy as some people have found, but definitely a smooth berry taste. Update on how it turns out!

Thanks. I'm mixing with Cascade, so that should take care of the citrus. If I forget to update, remind me in a month

This is true! I've only ever heard of good things about Amarillo for most beer styles.
