Was looking at using this recipe to clone DFH60IPA and recently picked up a sixer of this great beer (haven't had it in awhile). The aroma that I am getting has a distinct onion/garlic smell along with the citrus. This obviously wouldn't be accurate with the Amarillo, but maybe the Simcoe?? I am pretty new to homebrewing (couple years) and never brewed a batch with Simcoe. But from what I have read it is typically more piney?? Am I getting the onion-esque aroma from the Simcoe?? Thoughts?
I never got onion from simcoe. It's definitely pine/citrus/resin. The only hop variety I can think of that gives off onion aroma seems to be summit.
Summit gives onion and tangerine, which is very weird to me!
Amarillo is 100% grapefruit to me.
