I'm brewing with Amarillo right now, and my first impression (just judging by the aroma of the pellets) is that they're a bit grassy, but I do see where there is also some citrus in there.

Amarillo hands down, is the most citrusy/grapefruity hop I've ever used. I just bottled a 3 gal batch that had 3 ounces of amarillo in it and it tastes and smells like grapefruit juice was added to the recipe. Its AWESOME! if you can get a hold of some Yellowsnow IPA I think amarillo is the only hop in that, at least I know its the most heavily used one.

Good to hear. The beer I'm brewing right now is an all Amarillo IPA (5 oz. in 5 gallons) so I hope it ends up being a grapefruit bomb.

Amarillo, Cascade & Perle in combination will over-due grapefruit. My first batch of 3CPA was beyond the peel.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Columbus. Much more grapefruit aroma than Cascade and Amarillo.

I get the most grapefruit from Cascade, but I also get a lot from centennial. Amarillo seems to be more of a clementine orange aroma to me.

You would be correct there. I made a very light lager with cluster and it had a very grapefruity character. Went down good, that batch went quick.

I just brewed an IPA with Columbus, Simcoe and NZ Riwaka. I am expecting this to be very grapefruity, in a very good way. Riwaka is a very good hop to use for grapefruit aroma/flavor. I will let you guys now how it turns out in a few weeks.

Hey, the aforementioned Amarillo IPA ingredients were received in a box from Brewmasters Warehouse two days before it was brewed.
