1.5 - 4.5 mL/100g

Bittering Potential (alpha acid %)

Good for Bittering?

Not recommended for bittering. Due to high cohumulone content, it can result in astringency.

  • Alpha Acids & Crop Year: We print the alpha acid percentage and crop year on the hop package. Alpha acid levels will vary within a general range indicated above. Crop year is the year of harvest. When pelletized and stored in oxygen-barrier bags at cold temperatures to reduce oxidation, hops can remain in good condition for 3 to 4 years.
  • Hop Form: Type 90 Pellets
  • Smells Like: Dank, Resin, Pine, Citrus
  • Best Suited For: Hoppy American Ales - IPA - DIPA
  • Commercial Uses: Russian River Pliny The Elder
  • Notes: CTZ is high on the bittering scale and yet it is mainly valued for its oil content which contributes an interesting dichotomy of sharp, herbal and citrus notes.

Great Local Family Owned Business
Gabe and his wife, Jane, are true American small business owners. They are working hard during the COVID-19 shutdown to keep their customers supplied with the products and supplies they need to maintain their hobbies. Both are very not only very knowledgeable but are personable, and passionate, too. I appreciate the time they take to discuss and teach about all aspects of home brewing. Their store is well organized and well stocked. It just feels good to support a locally owned small business.
