I just bottled my Simcoe/Amarillo IPA (with a little Horizon also) and although it's not done conditioning, it tasted amazing at bottling. Amarillo's really are killer all around hops. Simcoe would probably be the best bittering hop for that third batch, BTW.
Bottled: Lots of stuff
On tap: Hefeweizen, Centennial Blonde
Up next: Quality Beverages

I know I am way late on this one but I have had my rye pale w/ amarillo conditioning for 13days now and tried one last night. I used an oz for my flavoring addition and this sucker packs a strong orange flavor w/ some subtle balsamic undertones. i dry hopped with an oz of amarillo and an oz cascade and you can hardly recognize the characteristic smells of the cascade over the strong orange smell of the amarillo. The beer is still very green and i think the orange flavors are a bit overwhelming at this point but i think in another couple weeks the centennial i used for the bittering addition will start to show up a little more and the orange flavors from the amarillo will mellow out. My big hop 5gallon batches always take forever to reach their apex.

Rye Malt 30%
