2 oz Columbus Pellet Hops Alpha Acid 14 to 16%
Columbus (also known as Tomahawk) is a relatively new hop variety patented in the USA by HopUnion Inc.
Being relatively high in alpha acid (14 to 16%), Columbus make a great bittering hop. In addition, unlike some of
the other high-alpha hops, Columbus provides a nice flavor profile as well, making it a wonderful all-around hop
and a good candidate for single-hopped pale ales and IPA.
Flavors are earthy, spicy, and pungent with a citrus component - yet mild and not overwhelming.
