Nikobrew: Polaris, Santiam and Ultra Hops

From Nikobrew:

Fellow Homebrewers:

We are pleased to inform you that we have just added three varieties of hops to our lineup! Like all hops we carry they are in pellet form.

Polaris – Our supply of these was grown specifically for us at a small, family farm in Germany

Polaris is Germany’s answer to American “C” hops. It offers major bittering and a slight citrus scent with a unique, minty note. It’s alpha acid content range is 18-25%. Try it in a big IPA, porter or stout.

Santiam – Bred from Hallertau, Tettnanger and Cascade. Typical alpha acid content range is 5-8%. It’s a substitute for most noble hops.

Ultra – Noble with a partial American pedigree. It’s an aroma hop that is both spicy and floral. Typical alpha acid range is 2-5%. It’s a substitute for Hallertau, Mt. Hood, Crystal and Liberty.

Polaris – $25/lb and $3.75/2oz
Santiam – $15/lb and $2.50/2oz
Ultra – $17/lb and $2.75/2oz
