WARRIOR® HOP PROFILE This hop has become the go-to bittering hop (Alpha Acid 15-18%) for many craft and commercial breweries across America. It was developed by Select Botanicals Groupand Yakima Chief Ranches in the Yakima Valley. It has a very mild aroma and contributes balanced flavor, but the bitter bite is sought after for bigger IPAs and many Imperial styles. Its high myrcene oil content contributes to its piney and zesty character.
