Current AA: 12.0 - 16.0%
El Dorado is an exceptional 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. This hop has bright tropical fruit flavors and aromas of pear, watermelon, and stone fruit.
Use in: ESB, American Pale Ale, Porter, IPA

Not sure how these will be, got them and the bag was punctured, will try to use them next week.
I absolutely love this hop! I’ve used ElDorado in a bunch of different beers, including my most recent Piña Colada IPA (a combo with Denali). It plays well with a lot of great hops and gives you a flavor that, in my experience, can’t be matched. I know a lot of flavor descriptors are stone fruit and pear, but I get a lot of candy! Jolly rancher even! I tend to use it a lot for dry hopping, but it works wonderfully anywhere in the brewing process. If you haven’t used El Dorado, just do it. Brew a SMaSH or grab some Simcoe or Citra and make something delicious. Hell, I really like it with centennial and absolutely love it with Columbus (it’s the dankiest). Cheers
Eldorado is very tasty, fruity and delicious! I made an outstanding IPL with them. They are now a favorite of mine.
Interesting fruit gum and fruit candy type aromas. I'm reminded of Juicy Fruit and Bazooka gum as well as red licorice ropes from my childhood. Maybe a bit of mango or pineapple in the background.
