4.8 / 5.04 ReviewsHigh AlphasThis is my favorite hop! I love bitter beer and the Summit hops add enough bitterness to satisfy my cravings.December 6, 2012Super Bittering HopsWorks great in Imperial IPA's, IPA's and Pale Ales, Great bitterness, and goes well with hops like Cascade, Willamette, Citra.February 25, 2013Summit yourself to this hops!This super hops has great bittering properties as well as great aroma if add late in the boil. A cross breed between Nugget, and citrus flavored hops with a super ALPHA content of 6:1 alpha-to-beta acid ratio.March 22, 2013Great... for a strong onion characterWhen used as a flavor and aroma addition (1 oz each), this hop contributes some light earthy and spice notes... which are almost entirely drowned out by the strong onion/garlic notes. In my two experiences, this has been "the onion hop."_x000D__x000D_This may be desirable for your style, and perhaps--like peated malt--this is an ingredient to be used in moderation. Just know what you're getting into, because I was unpleasantly surprised at the strengthFebruary 8, 2014
