14-16% Alpha Acids • Domestic • Dual Purpose Hop
Also known as CTZ (Columbus/ Tomahawk/ Zeus), Columbus is a half sister to Nugget and is a super high alpha variety. Columbus is used as a bittering hop with an intense, pungent aroma. CTZ has a high resistance to mildew and other disease. High on the bittering scale yet also valued for its oil content creates a hop that is an interesting dichotomy of sharp and herbal, suprisingly pleasant aroma.
