Idaho 7 T-90 Hop Pellets - 1 lb



US Idaho 7 T90 Hop Pellets, 1 pound sealed bulk package

Grown by Jackson Farms right outside of Boise, Idaho 7 came into the hop scene in 2015.  This was an experimental hop grown at Jackson Farms, and some brewers call it 007:  The Golden Hop.


With higher cohumulone levels, Idaho 7 does ok as a bittering hop, but really shines in later additions and dry hop additions.  Because of it's multifaceted nature, similar to Mosaic, Idaho 7 still does well in single hop beers, especially if the bittering additions are later in the boil.  Widely used in hoppy beers, Idaho 7 is still new enough for experimentation in many beer styles.

Aroma and Flavor

Expect a big, tropical fruit flavor and aroma counterbalanced by resinous pine and an overall stonefruit characteristic in late additions and dry hop additions.  Idaho 7 is bright and resinous at the same time, bringing a full spectrum of sticky pine, pineapple and mango, and overt stone fruits like peach to the table, as well as subtle black tea characteristics.
