New brand of hops from Yakima Valley. I'm ordering a half pound to try out. Not much info out there, some think they have an incredible peach aroma, others say they're just a nondescript bittering hop. I've been looking for a hop that reaks of stone fruit, so I'm hoping this is the one.

Anyone use? Sweetwater has worked with it apparently.

I'm thinking of doing an experimental hop pale ale/IPA, using some Mosaic, fruity/citrusey, Belma, strawberryish/fruity, and Caliente, fruity/stonefruitish, together. maybe an English ale yeast strain also?

I would be very interested in your results. I too bought a half lb of the stuff and haven't brought myself to use then yet. I was thinking either an APA or Amber with caliente and sorachi ace, since I seemed to get some lemon/lime/pine from them.

Hmm.. we'll see. Mine are in the mail. Really hoping they work out. Worst comes to worst I guess they will be a nice bittering hop... although I'm banking on that peach-apricot flavor. Wondering what other hop I should try for that flavor... Galaxy?

Please post your results. I like reading what other people have done with new hops.

The name makes me think of a habanero chili pepper ale instead of anything fruit-like. Wonder where they got that name from.

I know... poor name. Right up there with Belma. All these new hops have poor names or they haven't caught on yet.

Any update on the results from these hops? I really want to brew with them, but I've got so many other varieties calling me to use them in my freezer that I really want to make my next brew count. I've got a citra Zombie Dust clone up next, but I was thinking of a double brew day with one of the other hops I've never used like Apollo, Caliente, etc.... Anybody use these yet with any tasting notes they'd like to share?

Calliente in Spanish means heat hot, not spicy hot (Picante). Odd name for hops.
