Glacier Hops


Glacier is newer (2000) multi-purpose hop variety released by Washington State University for its low CoHumulone content and pleasant bitterness characteristics. Alpha acids are low-moderate at about 5.5% on average. The aroma is fragrant and pleasing with a slight citrus character balanced by moderated earthy qualities. Think somewhere between Willamette and Fuggle with less of the Fuggle's pungency.
