I used it in an IPA with Centennial, Amarillo, and Columbus. I think it's the way to go with a fruity hop like that. I got stone fruit and melon, but not the Jolly Rancher thing I'm hearing. But the Columbus (being so pungent) could've disguised some of that, so I may have picked up on that had I used the El Dorado alone or with another fruity hop. Not looking for Jolly Rancher beer.   ???

An old new belgium seasonal featured El Dorado hops. I remember really liking Red Hoptober and it appears to have been dry hopped with El Dorado and Centennial. As bluesman said, I think it could be great if you use it in combination with the right hops.

I remember really liking Red Hoptober... Didn't realize it was hopped with El Dorado

Which ska beer is that? Would like to try a commercial example with el dorado, hopefully I can get it in kc.

It's been released before as Insubstantial IPA, which didn't sell very well due to the name. The current release is a one-off for the Durango Film Festival called Hello Dave. It isn't being distributed out of town, but the response has been so good that it's going to be a year-round beer once the new canning line is in.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.
