This bitter beauty was born and bred at CLS Farms in Moxee (A sub-region of Yakima Valley). Bursting with juicy stone fruit and tropical notes, this dual-purpose hop has been featured in many great beers since its release in 2010. Big Alph-Acids (13-17%) make this an effective and efficient bittering hop, but can be used in late additions to maximize the fresh, fruity aroma and flavour. El Doradois an exceptional new dual purpose hop with both high Alpha-Acid and intense flavours/aromas. As a bittering hop, El Dorado lends a firm but balanced bitterness. When used in later additions, El Dorado brings bright tropical fruit flavours and aromas of pear, watermelon, and stone fruit. El Dorado has become a fan favourite in hop-forward styles and has been featured in stellar beers such as Surly's Overrated IPA, Ninkasi's Dawn of the Red and Let It Ride from Indeed Brewing.
