This American hop was bred for a high acid content and was originally cultivated in 2000. The high alpha acid range of about 15% to 19% makes Apollo hops a perfect bittering agent in any style of beer, especially IPAs. It also gives off both earthy and citrusy aromas during the boil that add a wonderful touch of flavor to your bitter brew. Because of their strength the use of Apollo pellet hops allows you to add less bittering hops overall. That can be an advantage for certain brewing systems where you want to reduce vegetal matter in the boil.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
