That's why I was going with a different hop for the flavor and aroma. probably going to buy the stuff sunday and brew monday (going extract for time purposes).
So is this one on your schedule for this week or did you already go for it?

I am actually brewing it right now. I am doing the extract version with 2oz of Briess Chocolate Malt used for color adjustment. When used in small amounts, it tends to act as a Caramel malt as far as flavor goes and I don't think this will be enough to get the full Chocolate Malt flavor, but I don't know exactly where that cutoff is yet (not enough experimentation with it yet). Just opened the Amarillo leaf hops from Hop Union (10.4%AA) and they smell amazing. There is a very mild citrus aroma to them and a sweet, floral aroma dominates. 17 minutes until flavor hop addition. I'll keep you posted on how it develops. Also using WLP862 Cry Havoc as Ale since that's been my house strain for about 6 months now.

Awesome! Can't wait.

Do you feel that after smelling the Amarillo it matches?

The citrus is definitely a character.

the cascade will lend some citrus even as a bittering hop. i have been using it in a Bells Two Hearted clone as well for that reason (that one is all Centennial, but their yeast has a citrus quality). I think it will at least be close. Also, if you read about the Bells Hopslam, they say Amarillo is a key hop in their aroma and I picked up some similarities between the two beers.

the amarillo would be a very interesting addition, but i don't think it would be good if you wanted to make two hearted. what was your hop schedule?

i'll post an update on this beer in a week or two when i decide to rack to secondary and dryhop.

I'm going to dry hop the Two Hearted on Saturday. I was only going to do 1oz of Centennial for 1 week.

i would go a little more, like 2oz total for 5gal. and i might throw in 1/4 to 1/2oz of cascade for that citrus, but it will be really good with just centennial too.

so, I have this bad habit where I need to take frequent samples of my beers, purely to check the gravity. Then I'm left with beer that i can't return to the carboy and I have to do something with it, so I force it down. Of course I do this purely for taste evaluation. However, I can tell you I am convinced the Amarillo hop is correct here. Fermentation is almost done (gravity=1.019).
