Phoenix is a high alpha varietal that performs well early in the boil. Bred at Wye College in Kent, England, it is an offspring of Yeoman. A replacement to Challenger as is more resistant to disease. Phoenix is considered a dual hop but typically used early in the boil for its clean bittering qualities. As a late addition it tends to be disappointing as it is mellow.
Triskel is bred from Strisselspalt and the male parent of the English Yeoman hop in 2006 by Comptoir Agricole in Alcase, France. An aroma similar to Strisselspalt and floral notes from Yeoman with a touch more fruitiness. High essential oils make the hop a champ for dry hopping. Inspired from the Gauls symbol "trikelion", ancestors of the modern French people.
