Default Serebrianka hops

(mods - I posted this over in General Beer Discussion, but thought now that perhaps it was more appropriate here - sorry for the double post)

Anyone ever hear of or have any info about Serebrianka hops? I had a beer brewed with it the other day, mostly because it used this hop that I had never heard of. I can find very little info online other than it is purportedly one of the parent strains of Cascade. Anyone ever use it or know where it can be found?

Freshops
It seems like it wouldn't be grown commercially on any large scale due to poor storage properties. Maybe try emailing the guys at Freshops or Hops Direct and asking if they know any growers or a source for rhizomes?

Hops Direct has it. I bought a pound and am trying to figure out what to do with it. What kind of beer was it that you had? A pale ale or ipa? I am thinking of trying out an IPA with it. Let us know if you have get any info on it.

It was actually in a cask-conditioned oatmeal stout. Some more info is actually coming out over on the original post linked above.

I have a pound also and plan on using them in some belgian ales like saisons.

I've been using them in saisons. I'm by no means a hophead so take my description with a grain of salt, but I perceive them, in general, as rather subtle, with a floral and perfumed character and a significant amount of noble character. The aroma on my dry-hopped saison, unfortunately, faded very quickly.

I did a hop tea with them and I would agree that it has the floral and perfume character. I did not detect a C hop character at all. I liked them a lot and can't wait to use them in my next saison. Next saison will be a blend of serebrianka and french strisselspalt.

I agree about the lack of C flavor, though the stout I tried was not very hoppy, and, obviously, rather stout-y so hops weren't being showcased. It is odd to think though that cascade is a descendent of this and fuggles and yet neither alone seem very cascade-like. I wonder what the early crops of cascade were like and if the citrus flavor has been selectively bred into it over the years.

I used some of these Serebrianka and Legacy hops in the Orval inspired beer I just brewed on Saturday. I will let you know in a few weeks how they turn out. I had whole leaf and blended them with Alsatian Strisselspalt pellets. It's chugging along with WLP510 and one bottle worth of dredges already thrown in. I have some other saved bottle sediment to dump in there also.
