Description

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.

Can I just say that Idaho is killing it on their hop game?  Idaho 7 has been a favorite of mine for a few years now, especially for hop forward beer styles.  This may be the closest hop that I’ve found to Mosaic, but the crop years seem to have a more consistent flavor.  It’s very tropical forward with a nice, dank and piney underbelly that, when used properly, can really help accentuate citrus and tropical characters in a hoppy beer.  Because it has the best of both worlds, it’s really, really stellar in a SMASH beer.  Don’t worry, if you want to try it, we already have an Idaho SMASH set up as a recipe, as well as a whole blog article, Idaho Malt and Idaho 7 Hops SMASH Beer, that goes over how we brewed, how we came up with the idea, and some pretty killer tasting notes!  

Usage

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.
