8.5% Avg. Alpha. Our most popular hop! A versatile hop that is similar to the German Hallertau Mittelfruh variety with a pleasant floral aroma suitable for flavor and aroma, yet it has a relatively high alpha acid content, making it useful as a bittering hop. It has the ability to retain its clean, crisp taste even in older beers. This hop is a good choice for German style lagers and European and American ales. We like this hop as a substitute for Hallertaur or Tettnanger hops, and its clean aroma works well for aroma or dry hopping American style hoppy pale ales and IPAs.
