    BREWING PROFILE

    Herbal, sweaty, sticky, weedy jungle.  Jethro Tull.  We revived this old USDA variety because of rumors about a cult-like following for what Horizon did in some early IPAs.  Can’t say we’ve ever completely had a feel for this hop… and we’re phasing out of it because the cult is just too secretive and hidden.  But we have a nice stash if you’re interested.

    BREWING NOTES BY BEER STYLE

    Endless possibilities. Here are a few that are tried and true.

    Flavor Tip: West Coast IPA

    This is definitely the playground for Horizon. There are a lot of palates out there, including those that are drawn to relatively strong herbal, weedy jungle hop flavors. Horizon does have a certain brightness about it, a pleasant bitterness, and a hop stickiness that has its place. There really are some hop heads who go bonkers for this hop, so don’t let our perplexity deter you!

    Fresh flavor for your brew!

    Origins

    Horizon

    Originally developed by the USDA in Corvallis, Oregon and released in 1997 as a high alpha, low cohumulone bittering hop. The low cohumulone appeared to be beneficial for foam stability and pleasant mouthfeel in low gravity beers.
