This article discusses a specific variety of hops. For general information about selecting, using or propogating hops, see the main hop page

A strong bittering hop derived from Brewer's Gold, with contributions from Early Green, East Kent Golding, and others. Primarily used for bittering, it has a smooth but somewhat heavy, herbal, spicy bitterness. Some, including Al Korzonas, feel that its distinctive flavor and aroma characteristics give it potential as an aroma hop as well.
