Jarrylo T-90 Hop Pellets - 2oz
US Jarrylo T90 Hop Pellets, 2 oz sealed package
Jarrylo is a dwarf hop variety that was developed in 2008 and released in 2013 by the American Dwarf Hop Association. After years of cultivation and expansion from softwood cuttings, this variety was named for the Slavic God Jarilo, a god of war, vegetation, springtime and fertility.
Medium level cohumulones make Jarrylo an ok bittering hop, but it's especially good at mid boil bittering additions from 20 minutes on. The flavor is fairly light, so while it's not a classically clean bitter like Magnum, it's still adds a nice bittering profile when used in later additions. The flavors of Jarrylo do especially well when added to compliment both other hop characteristics and estery yeast profiles, like in a Belgian Tripel or German Hef. Although it's not a hop that's prized in single hop beers, it works very well to tie hop flavors together.
Aroma and Flavor
Expect delicious fruit from Jarrylo, especially when paired with other fruity hops. Big banana, pear and orange dominate the profile, with subtle flavors and aromas of spice and green, almost grassy notes. The fruity spice characteristics in Jarrylo play very well with other fruity and citrusy hop varieties, acting as a bridge between the fruit and counterpoint spice flavors.

This is a seriously underrated hop, and one of my favorites for IPAs and Pale Ales! We've done a few pilot batches of a beer I like to call Gods of Thunder, a play on the namesakes of Jarrylo and Azacca. The dank, piney bitter of Azacca and the subtle, black pepper of the Jarrylo act as a beautiful contrast to the brighter pear, orange and almost banana of Jarrylo and the mango and papaya of Azacca.Â We usually lay them down on a bed of Golden Promise and call it a delicious IPA! Don't worry, we've got a kit coming soon!

Possible Substitutes for Jarrylo
Unfortunately, Jarrylo is in a class all it's own, which makes it very hard to substitute. Consider Citra or Galaxy as a more citrus forward substitution, or blend one of those with Ekuanot to get the light spice and grassy side of the profile.
