Breeding/Development: Germany. A daughter of Cascade, along with Hallertau Blanc and Hüll Melon, and released in 2012.
Brewing Application: Aroma. A tangerine machine when used for late, whirlpool, and dry hop additions, Mandarina Bavaria is quickly finding support in the brewhouse for American IPA and variants, black ales, saisons, Brett fermentations, and other beers where a definite fruity and strongly hoppy character is beneficial.
Sensory: Intense pineapple, lemon and citrus flavors with a resinous, herbal followup. Sweet and distinctive.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
