COLUMBUS US Hop Hash is here from Lot # H-496. Originally selected by Charles Zimmerman for Hopunion, Inc., Columbus is a descendant of Nugget. It is a high alpha variety and is primarily used for bittering purposes. Columbus is often referred to as CTZ, a trio of similar hops including Tomahawk® and Zeus.
Specific aroma descriptors include black pepper, licorice, curry and subtle citrus.
COLUMBUS US Hop Hash™ is sticky resinous and concentrated hop matter that will test the lupulin threshold of even the most experienced hop fiends. Hop Hash ™ is made from scrapping the concentrated build up of hop residue off the pellet mill @CrosbyHopFarm and was first discovered and made famous by Sweetwater Brewing Company in Atlanta, Georgia in their Hop Hash Double IPA
This Lot #H-496 has been scrapped from the pelletiser @CrosbyHopFarm. Crosby Hop Hash is very high in oil content and alpha and beta acids making it perfect for brewing a more hop forward and intense beer to show of the signature style and characteristics of COLUMBUS Hop Hash™ The low pelletizing temperatures work to preserve hop oils, aromatics, and alpha.
