Super high alpha and powerful flavour have made Summit™ one of the key new-school craft beer hops.
Breeding/Development: Washington, USA. Bred from Zeus, Nugget, and a number of USDA males, Summit™ was introduced by the American Dwarf Hop Association in 2003.
Brewing Application: Very high alpha levels make it an unparalleled bittering hop, but Summit™ is fully dual purpose – although its flavour can be love it or leave it for some. For those who love it, Summit™ excels as early or late additions in hoppy American-style ales.
Sensory: Heavy and big displaying signature citrus intensity (especially grapefruit & tangerine); can also have an earthy onion/garlic quality. Harvest conditions help determine balance between citrus and onion/garlic character.
