Pacific Jade is a high-alpha hop that produces a very soft bitterness, attributable to its low cohumulone content. The smooth bitterness can allow the mouthfeel or flavor characteristics of other ingredients to be featured without sacrificing hoppiness. The bold, citrus and pepper aroma provides excellent results in dual-purpose applications, and nicely compliments full, malty beers.
