The exact lineage of the proprietary hop CTZ (Columbus Tomahawk Zeus) is unknown. Its namesake was created in part as the result of a legal dispute between Hopunion and Yakima Chief when both parties attempted to patent the same hop. Yakima Chief's variety was named Tomahawk. After an agreement was reached, both names were registered. However they are technically the same hop.


Originally bred by Charles (Chuck) Zimmerman as part of a USDA breeding program sometime in the 1970's.

It features a punchy hoppiness and deep, pensive aroma with understated citrus notes perfect as a dual-use hop. Commonly used late in the boil and, when fresh, CTZ has a herbal flavour with a lemon citrus back note. Usable in a number of styles, notably American-style ales.
