(14.9 Alpha Acid and 6.3% Beta Acid) – The name for these hops comes from different, yet genetically similar varieties: Columbus, Tomahawk, and Zeus. They are typically used as bittering hops, as they have a high Alpha Acid content, ranging from 14-18%. This will give you excellent value for getting the desired bitterness with a smaller quantity of hops, reducing the amount of trub in your kettle or whirlpool. Although these hops are bittering specialists, they can be used for their flavour and aroma compounds. The aromatic notes for our CTZ hops range from fruity and citrus to mildly spicy. These hops are well suited to beer with American-style hop flavours. Consider using this hop variety when you are brewing American pale ales, West Coast IPAs or Double IPAs, or imperial beer, or barley wines.
