Warrior T-90 Hop Pellets - 2oz

Warrior is a proprietary hop variety developed by Select Botanicals Group. High Alpha Acids and a clean, spicy bittering profile make it a widely used hop in the craft beer community.

It's distinctly spicy 'bite' in the bittering addition add a wonderful counterpoint to both hoppy beer styles and lighter, crisper styles. Warrior is becoming more widely used as a flavor and aroma hop, but due to it's valuable bittering qualities, it's more often used in that capacity.
