US Azacca T90 Hop Pellets, 1 pound sealed bulk package

Formerly known as ADHA 483 from the American Dwarf Hop Association, this Washington State hop was named ‘Azacca™’ after the Haitian god of agriculture.  Released in 2013, Azacca has parentage that includes Toyomidori, a Japanese variety, and an unknown variety that is said to have Summit in it's lineage. 


Azacca, like many of the newer, high alpha varieties, does fine with bittering, giving you a slightly dank and earthy characteristic as the terpenes burn off in the boil, but really shines in late additions and dry hops because of it's multi-faceted flavor profile, giving you a beautiful blend of dank, almost juniper-y earth on the back and big, tropical fruit and citrus as the dominant profile.  This hop is decidedly complex, making it an ideal candidate for a single hop or S.M.A.S.H. beer.

Aroma and Flavor

Expect big, distinct tropical fruits like mango and papaya, balanced with orange, grapefruit, lemon and an overall citrus.  These are the driving flavors, and they are accentuated by distinct untertones of pine, fresh grass and earthy spice mixed with the light, almost acidic sweetness of pineapple.

If you like hoppy beers and haven't played with Azacca, you have work to do!  We've found it makes an incredible counterpoint to bright and citrusy hops like Galaxy.  It also has enough dimension to speak for itself in a SMASH beer with heavy late additions, but through many trials, we've found it works ridiculously well in a team.  Try our Andromeda IPA to get some perspective on how well it plays in a team!
