HOP BREEDING PROGRAM
Our Hop Flavour Spectrum is the product of many years of research, hundreds of experiments, thousands of conversations, and more than a few beer tastings.
It’s a useful tool for brewers who are considering our hops for the first time, or thinking about getting creative with an old favourite. It characterises our hops using familiar flavour profiles that allow brewers to better understand the impact of each one in beer.
We can’t claim it’s an exact science based on analytical data or technical descriptions. It comes from our experience of which flavours will manifest in beer based on how and when our hops are used in the brewing process.
This guide will evolve as brewers continue to experiment with our hops, creating new and different beers. So be a part of it, get in touch and tell us how our hops behave in your beers.
