Horizon is a clean, somewhat citrusy/floral high-alpha but low cohumulone hop variety. It originated in the United States and is typically grown in Washington and Oregon. Because of its clean yet somewhat typical-American aroma, Horizon is a great choice as a base (60+ minute addition) into beers like American Pale Ale, American IPA/IIPA and American Brown ales.
From the Yakima-Cheif site: "Horizon is a high alpha-aroma cultivar, a diploid seedling result of a cross made in 1970 between the USDA 65009 female plant (with Brewers Gold and Early Green lineage) and the male plant 64035M. It was released as a commercial variety in 1998."
Typical Use : Bittering, but the flavor is good
