The Z in CTZ blend, Zeus is one of our very favorite hops. It’s an incredibly versatile hop excellent for use in a wide range of beers from IPAs to stouts and even in pale ales, red ales and lagers. It is earthy with mild citrus tones and higher oil content, making it an especially good hop for bittering in fresh hop beers. Alpha acid 13- 17%.
Suitable for bittering and aroma, Chinook hops are ideal for use in all styles of ales, including IPAs, as well as lagers, porters and stouts. Chinook has a spicy pine balanced with citrus flavor and is widely used. Alpha acid 12%-14%.
Sparking the American craft brewing movement, Cascade hops have seen renewed popularity as it’s citrus-floral character make it a fantastic addition to west coast IPAs. Cascade loses flavor when stored, so it’s best used fresh. Alpha acid 4%-9%.
