Simcoe Hops (US)
A dual-purpose,unique American hybrid. Although it is primarily a bittering hop,it has a clean,pine-like aroma and flavoring with a slight hint of citrus. It is less astringent than other pine-like hops and has been highly sought after to make distinctive and unique Pale Ales like Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA. The flavor is believed superior due to low cohumulone levels.
