The exact lineage of the proprietary hop Columbus is unknown. Its namesake was created in part as the result of a legal dispute between Hop Union and Yakima Chief when both parties attempted to patent the same hop. Yakima Chief’s variety was named Tomahawk ®. After an agreement was reached, both names were registered. They are technically the same hop. Originally bred by Charles (Chuck) Zimmerman as part of a USDA breeding program sometime in the 1970’s, Columbus is sometimes referred to at CTZ (Columbus, Tomahawk® and Zeus) though it is genetically distinct from Zeus hops.

Review by Lucas V. on 28 May 2020review stating Excellent bittering hop:)
Previously I’d used Magnum for he 60min boil addition for bitterness but to fully follow a magazine published recipe next time around I specially bought and used Columbus as specified and it was a completely different and improved beer!:) Really great flavour, I didnt expect the difference but it was certainly a pleasurable Improvement! Almost give it’s a coconut type flavour.

This is the one you want for that dank, piney resin profile. Pair with any 'c' hop and you can't go wrong
