2016 hop crop Yakima Valley Hops.
« on: September 13, 2017, 01:42:07 PM »
Just ordered some hops i have yet to brew with. I ordered 2 oz each of Azacca, El Dorado and Caliente.

Anybody ever used Caliente before?

I usually only use two diffrent hops per recipe. Im thinking Azacca and El Dorado might be good together.

Cheers.

I'm a big fan of Caliente. It gives a nice stonefruit character (red plum and bing cherry, in particular), with a bit of lemonade and some earthy English hop notes. It goes great in IPA's, and makes for a unique late hop in English styles.

Excellent, thanks for the insight.
