Amalia Hops?

Can anyone shed some light on this hop. Its damn near impossible to get a description of its characteristics. I have seen some notes of orange? Earthy? It’s a New Mexico breed. I bought a few rhizomes. Thanks!

Do you have a link to where these hops are sold? Never heard of them, but I have a friend named Amalia - might be fun to make a beer with them.

Wow, never heard of it and the link doesn’t provide any info…

Found this: http://amaliahops.com/aboutus.html

Doesn’t appear they even have much info.

I’m excited to try them. Being from a drier area… Should be somewhat more tolerant to dry conditions. I bought six rhizomes. Four for myself and donating two to a local hop garden. Boom.

Tell me about this local hop garden idea… The hamster wheel in my head is spinning…

http://communityhops.org/ Pretty cool idea. Helps to vitalize a urban area. I am donating 2 rhizomes to the cause. I have a Horizon crown that I intend to move, cut and donate too. Man I love beer.

. Very cool. I may just look into that, depending on if I can bike there often enough.

Doesn’t appear they even have much info.[/quote]Taos Mesa Brewers have been making an incredible brew from hops harvested from 11 different vines from our ranch in Amalia. Jayson Wylie and his team would best be able to describe the brewing characteristics. We are separating, identifying and cataloging more than 200 vines from various ranches here in Amalia, NM. We’ll get the brewing characteristics after this years harvest. The best ones will be sent out for chemical analysis. Then next season we will start a breeding program using the best of the best.
Hope this info helps. Also, some guy came up here several years ago and took samples. He claims the hops he took from Amalia made the best beer he ever brewed. He sold some rhizomes to Stone Brewers in San Diego and they have been brewing with it. :cheers:

Wow. Thank you. I ordered 6 rhizomes. I am donating 4 to a local community hop garden. 2 for this guy! I already have Horizon, Centennial and now Amalia. Thanks for the insight. :cheers:
