Hop: Azacca


Azacca was bred in Washington by the American Dwarf Hop Association with parentage of Toyomidori (Japan with linage from Northern Brewer) and an unknown variety with lineage to Summit. It is named for the Haitian god of agriculture.

Azacca is a great late and/or dry hop. The sustained profile for the aroma situates to that usage. Whirlpooling brings out the juicy flavor and sweet aroma.
