Origin: Washington, USA. The hop formerly known as #483 from the American Dwarf Hop Association, Azacca™ is new to BSG for 2014. It is named for the Haitian god of agriculture.
Usage: Excellent aromatic qualities make Azacca™ a go-to hop for late and dry hop additions in a variety of styles, although its high myrcene fraction has already made it a favorite of IPA brewers. Shows well as a single hop in a simple grist.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Intense and tropical. Sustained impressions of citrus and very ripe mango, with notes of orchard fruit (pears, apples) and pine needles throughout.
Maturity: Mid to late-season.
Yield: 2,200 - 2,400 lbs/acre
