HBC-472 Hop Profile (Experimental Hop)

Came to us from Select Botanicals Group's Hop Breeding Company (HBC) in the Yakima Valley. It is a wild American hop that is unlike any other. It is a subspecies of hop called neomexicanus and is the result of open pollination. HBC-472's unique character is commonly described as "coconut and woody". This is predominantly the result of a higher-than-usual Caryophyllene content that comprises about 30% of total oils. Test batches of aggressively-hopped IPAs lent big "citrus and grapefruit aromas, but a fascinating whiskey/bourbon and coconut character break into the background." This oak and coconut becomes more pronounced in darker malt-centric styles.
