This dual purpose hop is a high alpha varietal with a neutral bitterness and intense aroma. Floral and citrus notes come out in both aroma and flavor, but can be very pungent, which makes Columbus great for late additions to a boil or dry-hopping. Columbus is a perfect choice for IPAs, Pale and Imperial Ales. Also referred to as Tomahawk, Zeus, or CTZ.

Like always, Fast shipping and great packaging. Turned my latest IPA into an empty keg quicker than I wanted.
I ordered a pound of Columbus a month or so ago. Had the product within a few days. I was worried about freshness, but it was worth it for the price. Made an American IPA with a half pound of Columbus and chinook. It's kegged and drinking great! Will be buying again!
God damn these things were dank. Made my Citra / CTZ IPA really pop.
I wanted to make a beer that tasted like dank heady nuggets. This is the hop I used to achieve that. 14 lbs Munich, 12 ozs of this hop, US-05. Thats it, and its my favorite SMaSH yet. The only beer I can compare it to or reminds me of, is Arrogant Bastard. Two very different beasts, but like I said, its the only thing I can really compare it to. Columbus is probably my favorite hop. It eats other hops for breakfast. While it would probably pair well with Mosaic or Citra, it holds up just fine on its own. For the amount of flavor and dank goodness I get out of this hop, you just cannot beat the price either. I love this hop, and have plans to try combining it it with other hops soon. Try my SMaSH recipe, you wont be disappointed!
