Breeding/Development: Washington, USA. The collective umbrella for the closely-related varieties Columbus, Tomahawk, and Zeus. Bred for high alpha potential, each variety shares parentage with Nugget.
Brewing Application: Excellent bittering capability as originally intended, but craft brewers have also harnessed CTZ’s intense, citrus-and-spice pungence for American-style IPAs.
Sensory: Powerful and striking, displaying oily fresh citrus and wild herbal character; dry hopping can bring out pine and spice.
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 this hop is limited to 160, 1 oz packages per month to each retail location. Please call us if you have any questions.
