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. El Dorado® has become a fan favorite in hop-forward styles and has been featured in stellar beers such as Surly's Overrated IPA, Ninkasi's Dawn of the Red, and Let it Ride from Indeed Brewing. 



El Dorado is a perfect dual purpose hop that carries wonderful pineapple aroma and flavor. Some brewers also note a hint of mango. Often used in IPAs, Pale Ales, and wheat beers. Hüll Melon and Ekuanot contain a lot of the same flavor profiles, making them the perfect substitutions for El Dorado.
