HBC 472 Pellet Hops 1 OZ (US)

$3.15

HBC 472 was bred and developed through the Hop Breeding Company (HBC) in the Yakima Valley, Washington and is the result of the open pollination of a wild American hop known as the subspecies neomexicanus.

The uniqueness of the flavor characteristics HBC 472 gives to beer has generated a great deal of interest in this cultivar among brewers. This special hop is truly one of a kind with considerable potential.

The aroma of the HBC 472 hop cones consists of floral, woody, earthy, and coconut. In beer, this hop delivers a surprising fruity note along with its distinctive "472 coconut-woody character."

When hopped aggressively in IPA style beers, citrus and grapefruit aromas rule, but a fascinating whiskey/bourbon and coconut character breaks into the background, especially evident in darker, malt-forward beers.

The robust character of this hop lends well to full flavor beer styles such as pale ales, IPAs, porters, stouts, and barrel-aged beers.

Alpha Acids: 9% to 11%
