So I brewed this IPA 4 weeks ago, and I (and SWMBO) love the fruity flavors.
The beer smells just like a grapefruit, and has a strong forward taste of fruit, grapefruit & tangerine. This is my first recipe with Amarillo, and I'm wondering if all the fruity flavor is really just from the Amarillo?

Recipe:
7# XL LME
0.5# Crystal 60
US-05 (1.5 packets, as I had some left over)
1 oz Nugget 15% @ 60m
1 oz Amarillo 9.3% @ 20m
1 oz Amarillo 9.3% @ 8m

OG - 1.055
FG - 1.014

I brew a Chinook-Amarillo pale ale and I get lots of fruity citrus out of that one. I think it is more of an orange-pineapple, but definitely some grapefruit too.

Def amarillo, did this exact same thing on my last pale. I love amarillo, but I'm starting to shy away from the grapefruitiness. I guess mostly cause I don't like grapefruit :p
