Luminosa® US Hops


Tax included

Size: 100gm

The bright fresh fruits of Luminosa make us feel transported to the sunny white sands of a Caribbean beach, and inspired the name which is Latin for “full of brightness.”  Peach-mango lemonade, candied orange peel, boysenberry, papaya and guava aromas can all be found. Unlike most “punchy” hops, Luminosa is almost completely void of the resinous/piney character that usually comes along for the ride—adding to the versatility of this hop.

Some kids turn out to be improvements on their parents—thank God! In 2013, hop breeder Shaun Townsend at Oregon State University decided to collect some open pollenated seed from a Sorachi Ace female. Hallelujah! We found a kid with mom’s striking citrus character that also took up fresh tropical fruits—AND managed to leave mom’s less desirable traits behind.

Craft Brewers Comments on Luminosa:

“Right there on the table Luminosa just blew our socks off.  So much zippy citrus and tropical character.” Joe Grimm | Grimm Artisan Ales, Brooklyn, NY, USA
