Dr. Rudy (Super Alpha)

Super Alpha Hops provide both bittering and aroma character to beer. It has a moderately high alpha acid content at 10.0%-12.0%. The bitterness is considered clean and crisp, even with its very high co-humulone content at 36.0%-39.0%​​


Recently developed American high-alpha bittering hop.​​​


Cascade is a variety of hop developed in the USDA breeding program at Oregon State University and released as an American aroma variety in 1971. It origi​​​nated from an open seed collection in 1956.


Centennial was first created in 1974 and boasts an alpha acid rating of 9.5%-11.5%. It is sometimes referred to as a Super Cascade, however it is lighter on the citrus aromas. Centennial works undoubtedly well in Pale Ales and India Pale Ales, where some bottom line bitterness in beer is needed with the top end aroma.


Chinook hops has a strong and distinctive pine-like aroma and flavor that is not common among other varieties. They are also somewhat spicy with a mild fruitiness similar to that of other Northwest hops (Cascade, Columbus, Centennial), though definitely not as strong.
