This unique hop is named after the Slavic god of vegetation, springtime, fertility-- and war. It has been particularly popular with the experimental brewing community as of late, and we knew that our audience would love reading about it.
Originally marketed as a hop for saisons and pilsners, Jarrylo has since been discovered by craft brewers for use in IPAs with its intense aromas and high bitterness. We decided to try it out for our Single Hop IPA series and were big fans of the complex fruity flavors it gave us.
Launched in 2013, Jarrylo was bred by the ADHA (Association for the Development of Hop Agronomy) as a dwarf hop, a smaller hop with a shorter bine that is easier to harvest and concentrated in alpha acids. It's grandmother hop is Summit, another favorite hop of ours that we use in our Summit Single Hop IPA.
Jarrylo hops are small, dense and deep green in color. Their high alpha acid content makes them perfect for bittering while still having a bouquet of flavor to add as a late addition or aroma hop. Banana, orange and pear are the big flavors you'll get from this hop but herbs, grass, and spice are also prevalent.
