Description

US Horizon T90 Hop Pellets, 2 oz sealed package

Horizon was created in Oregon in 1970.  As half sister to Nugget, it was originally intended as a high Alpha, low cohumulone bittering variety, but has found it's place in later additions as well due to a wonderfully floral and citrusy profile.  

Usage

Due to it's significantly low cohumulone levels, Horizon is an ideal bittering hop for any beer style, and is also a great performer in later, aroma additions due to a pleasantly floral and citrusy profile.

Aroma and Flavor

Expect a smooth, clean and slightly spicy bittering profile in early additions from Horizon.  Low cohumulones lend a a very clean and pleasant bittering profile.  In late additions, Horizon shines with a pleasantly floral profile with a distincly citrus backbone, balance by subtle spice and earth.  Big Myrcene and Farnesene content adds a huge floral and citrus kick when used as a dry hop.
