Bred by Yakima Chief Ranches, Ahtanum® YCR 1 cv. is an aroma-type cultivar used for its aromatic properties and moderate bittering. The variety is named after the location where Charles Carpenter established the rst hop farm east of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State in 1869.
A varietal of Virgil Gamache Farms, Inc., Amarillo® VGXP01 c.v. was discovered to be a mutation from another variety. Its ultra-high myrcene content creates a delicious orange citrus flavour. A respectable alpha acid content, Amarillo® can be a dual-purpose hop and contribute to bittering additions, but with its unique, highly sought-after aromas and flavours combined with high demand, it’s most often seen in late-kettle or whirlpool additions and as a dry hop. A fixture in American pale ale, IPA, and Imperial IPA formulations.
Intense and pungent. Red grapefruit overtones reminiscent of Cascade, overlaid with tropical fruit and ripe melon.
Azacca®, named for the Haitian god of agriculture, is a hop big in citrus and tropical fruit tones. It’s excellent aromatic qualities have quickly made Azacca® a go-to hop for late and dry hop additions in varying styles of beer.
Pioneered in the 1950's by Jack Horner and his team at Oregon State University, Cascade has since gone on to become one of the most popular American hops of all time. Released in 1972, Cascade now represents around 10% of all hops grown in the US.
It features an excellent vigor and yield and when brewed exudes a distinct spicy citrus aroma with hints of grapefruit. Well suited to just about any ale and lager, its use is particularly popular in American Pale Ales. Its relatively poor storage stability tends to be a non-issue with its popularity and subsequent large production volumes from major US breweries ensuring harvests don't sit idle for long.
Cascade was originally developed through open pollination of English variety Fuggle and the Russian variety Serebriankaand is named after the Cascade Range, mountains that run from northern California all the way north to British Columbia, Canada
Developed by Hop Breeding Company and released in 2014, Ekuanot® HBC 366 cv. features pronounced aroma characteristics and extremely high oil content. This variety bursts out of the spring soil in vibrant yellow and gradually matures to a deep green color by Fall harvest.
