Breeding/Development: Bred by Yakima Quality Hops in Washington, USA, Elani™ is an experimental hop that was officially released in 2022 as YQH-1320 EXP. First discovered as a wild hop, its parentage remains unknown.
Brewing Application: Clean, bright, and slightly spicy, Elani performs well in all IPA styles, both on its own and alongside other hop varieties. Pale Ales, Golden Ales, Wild Ales, Wheat Beers, Fruit Beers, and Saisons all stand to benefit from further explorations with Elani.
Sensory: Layers of citrus give way to notes of pineapple, guava, lime, white peach, and orange zest.
