Jarrylo Hop Pellets
Let get one thing straight, Jarrylo is not an IPA hop. Or at least it wasn bred that way. Paired with a crisp Pilsner malt base, Jarrylo shines with banana, pear, orange, and fruity spice.
Despite its upbringing estranged from the IPA cool kids, Jarrylo offers complex fruit flavors that make for a very unique Pale Ale and blend seamlessly into an IPA. Indeed, this is how commercial brewers have chosen to use it.

It’s a little spicy for my taste
I've done to batches with Jarrylo now and I have 1 ounce left. It will probably use the last ounce for bittering. I gave it three stars because the hop description (in my opinion) does not match the results. I found this hop to be absent of the fruity, orange, pear aromas.If you are buying this to use as a reasonably priced bittering hop that's not over-the-top than add one star. It's perfectly fine for that.
I used this hop in my fairly standard blonde that I've brewed a half dozen times with tweaks here and there. This time due to the high alpha nature of Jarrylo and the bjcp guidelines/expectation of a blonde I used 1.5-2 oz of Jarrylo with about 10 minutes left in the boil. The bittering was surprisingly smooth yet firm. The fruitiness was muted, there was no dry-hop addition. I found hints of spice & black pepper. The brew did well in competition. I'm trying Mt Hood next then will brew it with Jarrylo again. It isn't a 'punch you in the face' hop and will do well in milder styles as the main hop or mixed with others for bolder styles. It's a flexible hop and isn't too showy but has a distinct character.
