Use in brewing

Dual purpose hop.

An excellent all round hop with good alpha and aroma properties. As the main copper hop it provides a refreshing, full bodied, rounded bitterness which provides an excellent platform for a late hop. As the late addition it can give a very crisp, fruity character which has proved very popular in many beers.


Cedar, Green Tea, Spicy




Introduced by Wye College in 1972 this variety was bred from two trial varieties. It is very well related with its grandmother being Northern Brewer and its aunt – Northdown.
