Happy Hoppyween! This week’s hop is all about the Warrior. What makes this hop so scary is the clean taste and bitterness it adds to any beer. What’s even scarier is the high alpha acid level this hop has, just take a look:
Alpha Acid: 16 – 18 %
Beta Acid: 4 – 4.6 %
Total Oil: 1 – 2.5 mL/100g
In larger amounts, it’s not uncommon to find a subtle pine aroma. Warrior is used for it’s clean and bittering affect. Use it in your next brew!
