Idaho 7 ® Brand J 007 is a new hop managed by Yakima Chief Ranches. Developed by Jackson Hop in Wilder, ID, it exhibits a pungent, bold aroma with notes of pineapple, peach, mango, and black tea. It is a high yielding cultivar with dense cones and works well in a variety of beer styles.
Named for its home state, Idaho 7® is a late-maturing aroma hop that drips with juicy notes of tropical and stone fruit, supported by sticky pine and faint notes of earthy black tea.
Idaho 7® plays well with others and shines when paired with varieties like El Dorado®, Comet, Strata®, Cashmere and Centennial in hop-forward beer styles like IPA's and Pale Ales.
