14-16% Alpha Acids • Domestic • Dual Purpose Hop
Named after the Haitian god of agriculture, Azacca® is one of a new brood of dwarf bittering hops. Descended directly from Toyomidori, Azacca®’s greater parentage also includes Summit™ and Northern Brewer. It is considered by many as being well suited to the IPA style. Even with its high alpha acids, Azacca® still works well as a dual-use hop, giving off a pleasant mix of tropical fruits kissed with citrus. On the palate this hop is particularly spicy, with mango, pineapple and some pine-like and tangerine-esque qualities. Despite being a US hop, it has been likened in nature to some New Zealand-bred varieties.
