Horizon T-90 Hop Pellets - 1 lb
US Horizon T90 Hop Pellets, 1 Pound sealed bulk 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.
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

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.
