Alpha acids are high, usually between 12 and 14% AAU. This hop was bred in 1980 bred in 1980 at Huell, the German Hop Research Instititute. It was a cross between Galena and the German male 75/5/3. Usage is best in ale styles like Pale Ale and IPA, or any strong ales. Other sources say they are good for Pils and Lager styles. This wide range of use is due to this hop's clean characteristics.
