Hop Type: Dual-Purpose
Origin: New Zealand
Alpha Acid: 13.6%
Super Alpha, despite its name, is a versatile, dual-purpose hop.
Slight notes of fresh grass underlie a complex aroma of pine and lemongrass, making Super Alpha a desirable choice for late hop additions or dry hopping.
When used for bittering, Super Alpha can deliver a very crisp, bitter edge to the back palate, and adds a slight resinous character.
This interesting hop can be used in ales or lagers, and in both classic and new-world styles.
