(HPP210) This hop is gaining in popularity in the craft brewing world, do to its aroma and smooth high bittering ability which results in a nice clean flavor. This hop is considered the half sister of the Nugget hop. The Horizon hop is well suited for beers that have that hoppier edge such as Pale Ales and some of the ESB style beers. Horizon will add notes of floral bouquet to the aroma, as well as providing some essence of citrus fruits. If you are looking for one of the more unique hops that are available you might try experimenting with the Horizon hop. The Horizon hop is considered a dual purpose hop as it can be used from beginning to end. The best substitute for this hop would be the Magnum hop.
- Alpha Acid 11-13%
- Well suited for beers with a hoppier edge
- Dual purpose hop that can be used for bittering and finishing

Are your pelletized hops compressed, leaf hops?
These are fresh leaf hops that have been shredded, cleaned of seeds, etc, then pulverized and compressed into the pellets. This is the most common way hops are processed and sold. More hop resin is extracted and exposed this way, which creates more efficiency. Pelletized hops also stay fresher longer in this form as well.

How long will your hops stay fresh after I receive them and what is the best way to store them.
Our pelletized hops are sealed in oxygen-barrier plastic bags along with nitrogen gas. This keeps the hop pellets very stable and fresh while in storage. If the hop pellets are stored at room-temperature, we do not recommend buying more than you can use in a year`s time, but if stored in a refrigerator or similar, the hop pellets should stay fresh for up to two years if un-opened.
