Origin: Washington, USA. First dubbed YCR 5 cv., Warrior® was developed by Yakima Chief Ranches and arose from the same program that gave us Simcoe. It is known for both high alpha content and high yield in the hopyard.
Usage: Dual purpose, with smooth bittering thanks to a typically low cohumulone level and a sensory profile welcome in hoppy American ales.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Mild to moderate with a complex mix of bright citrus, honeysuckle, sweet herbs, and green wood.
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.
