US Hop IDAHO #7 ™ flavour shines with pine, stone fruit, and predominantly herbal character.  Tea-like, some citrus, floral and peach or white grape aroma. Great for brewing US APA and IPA beer styles.  Burst onto the scene in 2015 with multifaceted hop character reminiscent of Mosaic and rapidly gaining attention with Craft and Home brewers across the US and Australia.

IDAHO 7 ™ US Hops Crop 2016 T90 Hop Pellets are sourced from Lot # P-506 from the highly innovative and experimental family owned Jackson Hops in Caldwell, Idaho.

IDAHO #7™ US Hops has strawberry, melon, canned pineapple, white grape and unique peach aroma.  Deep searching and a little warming lead to peach, tangerine, and perhaps white grape.  Aroma is mild with subtle hints of pine.  Complex fruity aromas of orange and apricot mesh with hints of black tea-like character and a pleasant fresh herbal bouquet.

IDAHO  7 ™ US Hops flavour shine with strong white grape, dark orange, clementine, tangerine and mango burst. Peach and pear join the fun towards the tail end, which finishes very dry.

This Lot #P-506 from Jackson Idaho 7 ™ Hop is pelleted @CrosbyHopFarm.  Crosby Type-90 Hop Pellets are a softer “craft pellet”.  These pellets are approximately 20% less dense than industry standard pellets.  The soft pellet comes apart quickly when used as a dry hop, and provides better hop utilization.

The low pelletizing temperatures also work to preserve hop oils, aromatics, and alpha.
