Aroma Hop

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