Organic Simcoe®Regular price $721.60
Released to the world in 2000 by Yakima Chief Ranches, American variety Simcoe® has become wildly popular with craft brewers. With a high alpha percentage and low cohumulone, it makes a very nice foundational bittering hop. It is also noted though for its favourable aroma qualities. It has a pleasantly fruity, yet earthy herbal and piney aroma.
Flying Fish used it to create its 10-year anniversary Barley Wine – 5 additions of it alongside Magnum. Sierra Nevada also uses it in one of their High Altitude bold beers Hoptimum®. It has been referred to as “Cascade on steroids”.
