an ipa man! i looooove them in my ipa's. one of the best flavor aroma hops i have ever used. *ONLY use them for flavor and aroma. Use them as the "star" of your hop schedule (15 - 0) and you wont regret it.

2oz isn't much so I would say do a pale ale, bitter with something like magnum / ctz / or chinook, then use the amarillo (and maybe a third hop like citra, simcoe, centennial, etc) for finishing.

I made an IPA with a bunch of hops leftover from previous brews. I also re-used yeast from our Big Brew Day batch. It's still in the fermenter so I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I named it Sloppy Seconds IPA because of the 2nd time around theme.

Eat it!!! Naw, but for real? Late additions on an APA sounds good to me.

Oh, I LOVE amarillo hops!

How about a "clean" APA, with amarillo for flavor and aroma hops?

I'd do this:

Target IBUs around 40 IBUs
OG 1.050-1.052

10 pounds two-row
.75 pound crystal 40L
.25 pound victory or toasted malt

.50 ounce magnum (or centennial, chinook, whatever) 60 minutes (or to 25-30 IBUs with this addition)
1 oz amarillo 15 minutes
1 oz amarillo 5 minutes
(or .75 oz amarillo 15 minutes, .75 oz at 5 minutes, .5 oz at flame out or dryhopping)

That should be like a tastier SNPA, sort of.

+1 for this recipe. I like the 2nd hop-option. Personally, I'd save a full oz for dry hop, then do .5 oz at 10mins and .5 oz at 5mins or even a 150 hopstand....won't be quite as balanced as Yooper's recipe, but more hop showcase.

Haha, that was my first thought too. Then I remember what raw hops taste like. Pretty good actually. But those AAs burn.
