Ahtanum Hop Pellets - 1 oz
Perhaps a better name for this wonderful variety would’ve been “Unobtanium”, because we could at least pronounce it, but tongue-twisting aside, Ahtanum is an excellent flavor and aroma hop for American-style ales. It has often been described as Cascade-alike, but it is by no means a clone. It does sport a zesty, citrusy and floral character but without the trademark grapefruitiness of Cascade. It’s an excellent late-boil hop addition to pale ales, IPAs, amber ales and American brown ales, and the tempting citrusy-floral character comes through nicely from dry-hopping. And just in case you’re wondering, this seemingly unpronounceable hop takes its name from the Ahtanum growing region in Yakima County, Washington.
