Ahtanum Hops Pellets 15g

$0.90

Yakima Valley bred Ahtanum is sweet and peppery with a piney-citrus aspect. Warmly aromatic and moderately bittering, Ahtanum is a hop of distinction. It is often likened to Cascade, although it makes more sense to say that Cascade is a good substitute. Ahtanum is less bitter, its alpha acids are lower, and its grapefruit essence is much more pronounced than Cascade’s. It really is more akin to Willamette, with Willamette’s note being more lemon than grapefruit. Ahtanum’s distinct citrus character has led to it being used as the singular hop in Dogfish Head’s Blood Orange Heffeweisen and Stone Brewing’s Pale Ale.
