Breeding/Development: African Queen is a high-alpha aroma hop that was developed in 1998 as the result of a cross between two experimental varieties.

Brewing Application: Use African Queen as a solo hop or part of a blend for finishing additions in highly-flavored or hop-forward styles: pale ale, IPA, saison, Belgian-style ale, sour ale, and craft lager. Its unique combination of flavor and aroma notes make it an excellent candidate for juicy and hazy IPA.

Sensory: Fruit-forward and complex, with multifaceted expressions of blueberry, stone fruit, cassis, gooseberry, melon, iced tea, clove, and lemongrass.
