The variety is patented. No one else is allowed to grow it.

I couldn't find the specific patent for Amarillo hops, but here's an example of a patent for a plant:

Here's one for Columbus:

Alright, I found the Plant Variety Protection Office which is the starting point if you have a plant that you want rights over. From the reading it states that you'll be issued a certificate and after a year and one else has describe the same plant for a certificate then the person can apply for a patent. However this don't mean you can make other people stop growing it. It's only for legal right over the market. So anyone can grow it, just once money has exchanged hands for the crop then legal actions can be taken.

But thanks for posting the patents, I couldn't find any at the time.

Wow! This discussion is getting serious. I just looked at fresh Amarillo cones for sale for $13.50/lb. I'd love to grow this variety on my home scale, but I guess I'll have to wait until something better comes along (Citra?) and this family starts loosening their grip on it. Seems that's bad beer karma to me as well. If I can continue to buy Amarillo at this price I don't even need to grow it, and that seems to be a win/win for everyone.
