Jarrylo® pronounced properly as (Yar-il-lo), although few people actually pronounce it this way, was named after the Slavic God of War and Fertility.  Despite its bold name, this is a great hop variety, but it will never be the prettiest girl in the room. Because of this, many brewers have overlooked the variety, as it doesn’t dominate the flavor profile when used. That can be a strength or a weakness depending on your perspective. Jarrylo ® offers hints of citrus, some mild fruitiness (many say pear or banana) and can have slight spicy pepper notes, but all in a very subtle manner. It packs a punch in the bittering department, however, while not providing any off flavors if you’re looking for a citrus-forward beer. If you’re going for a citrusy profile though, you might want to finish that beer off with a Cascade or Centennial to beef up the citrusy profile. Jarrylo® plays well in the sandbox with others, but she does not stand out in our opinion as a good candidate for a SMaSH beer.
