El Dorado (USA) (1 OZ)
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.
A high level of alpha acids normally ranging from about 14% to 16% delivers intense bittering quality to beer styles like IPAs and Pale Ales. The robustly fruity, almost candy-like aroma evokes everything from cherry, to peach and mango through lighter brews like wheats.
