Used in almost all beer styles, El Dorado® hops elicit aromas and flavors of tropical fruitiness like stone fruit, hard candy, pear, watermelon, and pineapple. El Dorado® is a dual-purpose hop due to its high alpha acids, so brewers can use them throughout the brewing process. When used for bittering, El Dorado® hops lend a balanced bitterness. In later additions, such as dry-hopping, El Dorado® brewers note tropical and candy-like flavors.
Alpha Acid Range: 13% – 17%
