German Amarillo® Hops (VGXP01)


Stone fruit, balanced with floral notes and citrus. Simply tasty and refreshing.


Amarillo® hops are the perfect match for American Pale Ale, American India Pale Ales, American Wheat, East Coast Hazy IPAs - and of course the beer that will make you famous


Grown by selected farmers in the five traditional hop regions of Germany. The plants are the same as in the US. But the different microclimate and soil composition in Germany adds unique qualities to the Amarillo® hop.

Are American and German Amarillo® hops the same?

Yes. The plants are the same. They are being grown in different microclimates. These microclimates combined with VGF’s HopTechnic® harvest timing protocols enhance subtle, beneficial differences between growing regions.

Where do Amarillo® hops grow in Germany?

All German Amarillo® hops are grown by partner farmers in the five traditional hop growing regions of Germany.

We work closely with our partners Virgil Gamache Farms and HVG Germany to bring you the same great flavours and quality that you know from US-grown Amarillo® hops.

What’s the general flavour / aroma profile of German Amarillo® hops?

The Amarillo® VGXP01 hop is unique in the world of hops. It tastes like it smells. The flavour profile will change as it matures during harvest season.

The flavour range of our German production begins with a sweet candy, and lemon profile. It progressively moves to the classic middle harvest flavour notes of grapefruit, orange, floral, stone and tropical fruit and finishes with late harvest hints of garlic and onion.
