Use in brewing

A fine aroma hop with fresh peaches and apricot characters within a weight of essential oils

Citrus characters apparent in selection step back a little in the finished product to make way for a blend of stone fruits such as fresh peaches and ripe apricot. Low cohumulone and high levels of farnesene create a rounded clean bitterness when used in single hopped beers. The high oil content fills in all the corners when used in late additions, the hop back or in dry hopping.

Used in both Lagers and Ales where its character builds to develop an excellent finishing bitterness and drinkability. Fresh peaches and stone fruit dominate the aroma in singled hopped beers and also when combining as a late addition with other varieties. Creates fruity aroma driven new world beer styles.
