The aroma profile includes passion fruit (granadilla), guava, red berries, melon, calendula, and grapefruit – very unique. Total oil content is about 1 percent, alpha acids range from 8 to 12 percent, and cohumulone is very low from 16 to 20 percent. Noble hop pedigree represented in alpha and beta acids being about equal. Works well with a variety of beer styles including lightly hopped session beers, and all hop-forward beers of American and Belgian origins such as pale ales, IPAs and Saisons. Possible similar hops: none.
