John I Haas sent word on six new hops added to the HAAS portfolio this week. These hops were born from the hard work of fellow farmers and hop breeders ranging from Idaho to Oregon and all the way to New Zealand.
Nelson Sauvin. A powerfully aromatic hop with unique and surprising flavors, ranging from fruity white wine to tropical notes.
Idaho 7. A great dual purpose hop ripe with zesty oranges and tangerines reminiscent of marmalade.
Motueka. This New Zealand hop offers moderate Alpha Acids (6-8%) and has a unique flavor and aroma of fresh tropical limes that can be incorporated into a number of styles.
Triumph. A great lager hop with delicate fruit forward aromas.
Strata. Offers a complex layer of aromas perfect for IPAs, Pale Ales, New England IPAs as well as dark beers and ales.
Idaho Gem. A “found” hop of unknown lineage, it has sweet, fruit-forward aromatic oils and a relatively high alpha.
