The Citra® hop is a high alpha acid hop with a citrus and herbal aroma. It is the most commonly used variety of hops in craft beer. It has specific aroma descriptors that include grapefruit, citrus, peach, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee and a smooth bitterness when dry-hopped.

Comet

Rounded fruit, citrus, herbal, floral
Pacific Northwest, USA

Comet hops are a mix of British Sunshine hops and American wild hops. We use Estate Grown Oregon Comet from Crosby Hop Farm--a rare variety grown exclusively in the Willamette valley and picked weeks later than others giving it a more rounded flavor. It maintains the characteristics of wild hops with its strong grapefruit flavor. It's citrusy and floral with a slightly dank finish.

Lemondrop™

Simcoe®

Yakima, Washington

Simcoe® is one of the most popular hops for brewing because it provides a pleasant bitterness and is smooth and complex. It is piney, fruity, and citrusy and complements a variety of different styles of brews.

Strata®

profile
origin
Pine, lemon citrus, herbal, woody
Pacific Northwest

The Strata® strain of hops came from Oregon State's Aroma Hop Breeding Program, and boy did they nail it. It's known for its distinct resinous flavor, dank citrusy pine aroma, and lingering bitterness. This one is a fan favorite that will trick you into thinking you're drinking an IPA--no fermentation required.

Centennial

profile
origin
Pine, citrus, white grape, pepper
Pacific Northwest, USA

Centennial hops, named for the 100th anniversary of the state of Washington, have a dank piney aroma great for bittering. They lead with sharp, bitter resinous pine and end with sweet citrus and floral notes.

El Dorado

profile
origin
Pineapple, grassy, stone fruit, pear
Pacific Northwest, USA

El Dorado hops, named for the deep golden-colored lupulin produced inside the cones, have a very fruity aroma and flavor with notes of pineapple, apricot, peach, cherry--think of a pack of lifesavers. They are famous for hitting the market in only two years (it often takes upwards of 10!), which adds to their mythical namesake.

Experimental 008

profile
origin
Green apple, earthy and herbal
Willamette Valley

This is an incredible brand new hop that is grown on less than 2 acres in the whole world! Bred by the Hop Research Council, Experimental #008 has flavor notes of multiple layers of green apple skin, fruit and some tropical nuances of peaches and mangoes. It rounds out with some subdued grassy, earthy and dry herbal blend characteristics.

Hüll Melon

Idaho 7®

Idaho 7® arrived on the brew scene in 2015, so it's relatively new. It's ideal for dry-hopping because of its high level of bitterness and its juicy tropical taste. It has strong notes of resinous pine and a scent of tangerine.

Mt. Hood

profile
origin
Herbal, pepper, floral
Oregon

Mt. Hood hops got their name from the majestic Mt. Hood in Oregon. They descended from the German Hallertauer hops family. A light floral scent and honey-like sweetness combine to make a clean flavor with a crisp resinous aftertaste.

Oregon

The Willamette variety of hops is named after the Willamette River in Willamette Valley, where more than 20% of the commercially used hops in the USA are grown. It has a complex spicy characteristic with tropical and pine notes and a candied berry finish.

In case you were wondering

What Are Hops?

Hops are the green cone-shaped flowers, or “inflorescence,” of the Humulus lupulus plant. They’re a climbing perennial with a distinct jackpot for craft brewers. Hidden inside each cone are tiny yellow pods or glands called lupulin—the source of bitterness, aroma, and flavor in beer. One of the largest and most common agents of “hoppiness” is bitterness.
