- Amarillo® - Amarillo® hops have become super popular with microbrewers. Brewers are describing the flavor and aroma as a supercharged version of Cascade. Floral, tropical, and citrus (lemon, orange and grapefruit) characteristics. However, it has a distinctive Orange character to it that is very different from Cascade. AMARILLO® is a trademark owned by Virgil Gamache Farms, Inc.
- Cascade - The popular Cascade hop was first developed by the U.S.D.A. around 1972 in Oregon and has given life to the same varietal from other regions such as New Zealand and Argentina. All Cascade hops have the same essential traits but are influenced by the region they are grown in. Dual purpose applications and wide accessibility makes the Cascade hop the most commonly used varietal in home and commercial craft brews.
- Citra® - Citra® is currently one of the most sought after hops among craft and home brewers for their intense citrus aroma and flavor. Grapefruit and lime aromas along with gooseberry, passion fruit, and lychee notes. Currently one of the top choices for late hop additions or dry hopping when you want to make that ultimate hop bomb IPA or Pale Ale. Citra® also has a fairly high alpha acid content making it a good choice for bittering IPAs, Pales, and American Ales. Supply has been limited in the industry but MoreBeer! loved this hop from day one and bought a lot of it years ago on contract.
- Columbus - 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.
- Mosaic® - A product of Nugget and Simcoe® hops, American bred Mosaic® hops are one of the most in-demand aroma hops on the market. Released in 2012 by the Hop Breeding Company, Mosiac® presents a complex bouquet of earthy, pine, and fruit aromas from berry to mango. Though Mosiac® does contain an alpha acid range between 11.5% and 13.5%, it is generally not used for bittering. The overall characteristics of Mosiac® hops make for a lovely addition in just about any beer style, though most commonly used in pale ales, IPAs, and stouts.
- Simcoe® - From Yakima Chief Ranches in Washington comes another home-brewer favorite, the Simcoe® hop. While its parentage is unknown, Simcoe® is often compared to Cascade for its light aroma and dual purpose uses in brewing. An alpha acid range from 12% to 14% combined with a rich aroma of earthy pine and citrus makes Simcoe® a well-rounded addition to just about any style of beer.
