Use In Brewing
A dual-purpose hop selected for its high average alpha content, as well as “bold” aromas delivering herbal infusions of fresh citrus and crushed black pepper. Suited mainly as a bittering hop providing pleasing, soft bitterness due to its low cohumulone, it has also seen excellent results in dual purpose applications.
