Origin: Oregon, USA. A half-sister to Nugget, Horizon was developed in 1970 through the USDA breeding program but not released commercially until 1998. Its lineage includes Brewers Gold, Early Green, USDA 65009 and 64035M.
Usage: Horizon’s low cohumulone and high alpha content makes it a preferred hop of many brewers for a smooth, clean bittering quality. It also has good aromatic potential, making it a versatile dual-purpose hop for any American craft beer style.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Sweetly floral with tangy hop spice. Intensity can range from quite mild to moderate depending on crop and growing conditions.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen- and light-barrier foil 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.
