El Dorado hops were developed by American CLS Farms, LLC in 2008 and commercially released in 2010. Specifically bred for a high level of alpha acids and heavy aroma, this hop is the epitome of a dual purpose brewing ingredient.
El Dorado® Hop Profile
This juicy hop was born and bred at CLS Farms in Moxee (a sub-region of the Yakima Valley). Bursting with juicy pineapple and tropical notes, this dual-purpose hop has been featured in many great beers since its release in 2010. Big Alpha 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 flavor. El Dorado® is an exceptional new dual-purpose hop with both high Alpha Acid and intense flavors and aromas. As a bittering hop, El Dorado® lends a firm but balanced bitterness. When used in later additions, El Dorado® brings bright tropical fruit flavors and aromas of pineapple, pear, watermelon, and stone fruit.
