so many new hop varietals, so little time...
first i've heard of el dorado hops was from the brewdog website about their new 'ipa is dead' single hop series:
James' Tasting Notes:
The Pacific North West of America is home to the brand spanking new El Dorado Hop. America is not just about cheer-leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and El Dorado is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with tropical fruits, pear, watermelon, candy floss and stone fruit. Devilishly moreish.
