I get a general Fruity/Juicy/Floral Citrus, mostly mild Grapefruit. Not the sharp grapefruit we see in Cascade.

Never blame an ingredient for a mistake the brewer made. 2.5 oz of amarillo can make for a wonderful aroma, though 2 weeks on dry hops can make for some funny aromas. Also, I'm not a fan of warrior anywhere after the 60 min mark. It's generally considered as a bittering only variety.

I make Yoopers Haus Pale Ale. It's all cascade, from bittering to dry. Tastes great to me (it's my house pale ale too, thanks Yoop).

Maybe I got some "bad" Amarillo. Came from hops direct. Hard to say.

It's hard to say. Maybe you're just not a huge fan of Am's. I've always had good results and this most recent batch is the only time I though that I overdid Amarillo. I've done all amarillo IPA, with a big (but short) dry hop and really enjoyed it. It was like orange/tangerine marmalade.

i made a half-batch of amarillo/optic SMaSH that was a delicious grapefruit bomb (http://hopville.com/recipe/1323302). dry-hopped with the equivalent of 1.75 oz/5 gallons. big success.

i got a LOT of grapefruit, too. i'm wondering if it's a yearly variation - depends on amount of rain, sunshine, heat, etc. my amarillo is from the 2011 crop.

I got a ton of grapefruit from the '11 crop. I did a SNPA clone but with amarillo in place of cascade and it was like grapefruit juice. So far, the '12 crop has given me tangerine/orange juice and less of that grapefruit. Could be a difference in crops, or in where they were grown.

I did a pale ale recently dry hopped with .5 oz warrior and 1.5 oz cascade, and I thought it was fantastic. To each their own.

Hi guys,
I just brewed a mono hop Amarillo Pale Ale.
I used the same recipe with a Mosaic Pale Ale and the result was excellent. Unfortunately I am not so satisfied with the Amarillo.
When I tasted the beer I felt a grassy/woody off flavour and none citrus/grapefruit aroma.
The process was exactly the same in the two recipes so I think the problem was in the hop that maybe was not stored properly.
What is your opinion? Does it make sense? The ideal should be to make another brew with this hops but on the other hand I don't want another batch of grassy beer.

This is the recipe

2014 or 1015 Amarillo? I think last year's batch was better...
