Breeding/Development: Germany. Bred at the Hüll Hop Research Center, Ariana is a cross between Herkules and a wild male hop.
Brewing Application: Aroma. Although high enough in alpha acids to handle bittering duty, Ariana’s oil content and organoleptic profile make it a great finishing hop.
Sensory: Fruity, with intense berry character of black currant and gooseberry. Citrus high notes (particularly grapefruit) with slight resinous and herbal tones.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
Because demand is higher than supply, purchase of Ariana hops is limited to 160, 1 oz packages per month to each retail location. Please call us if you have any questions.
