Varieties

Current hops in commercial quantities: 

  • Centennial: Centennial hops are best known for their intense citrus bursts in both aroma and flavour, with notes of floral as well. Due to the citrus/floral combination, Centennial is affectionately referred to as “Super Cascade” in the hop community. Centennial is used in a wide range of brews but is best suited in ales and pale ales. 
  • Cascade: A widely used dual-purpose hop commonly found in IPA’s. In addition to its renowned floral and citrus flavours and aromas, Cascade is also known for the part it played in starting the recent hop craze that has flooded North America.
  • Chinook: Chinook is a dual purpose hop that is quite popular for both its flavour and its aromatic value. Chinook is known for its smoothness and features a strong pine flavour, with noticeable grapefruit dashes as well. High alpha acids make this desirable and particularly effective for the modern IPA.
  • Magnum: A hybrid of a german and american hop ingenuity, Magnum is known for its excellent bittering value with aromas of spicy pepper and nutmeg with a citrus finish. Because of its clean, crisp finishing profile, Magnum is a great hop for german style lagers, pilsners and ales.
  • Triple Pearl: A new dual purpose hop that features a bold blend of citrus (especially orange and lime) in combination with a spicy pine finish making Triple Pearl a perfect fit for any pale ale or IPA. Many brewery enthusiasts consider triple pearl to be the next new “Wow” factor hop coming to the craft beer IPA industry.

 

After Harvest 2021 we will have four new varieties to offer:  

  • Hallertau: At over 100 years old, this is one of the four "noble" hops. It's known for its light flowery aroma with a hint of spice. 
  • Kent Golding: floral and earthy notes, perfect hop for a flavouring and finishing.
  • Saaz: Another of the four noble hops, Saaz is a staple in lagers and pilsners with a prominent herbal character.
  • Galena: Known for producing that clean and crisp taste with hints of blackcurrant, spice and citrus.
