Experimental #07270

Description: Experimental #07270 16.6%AA – Crop Year 2014 – This experimental Hop To Be Named Later is looking for a home in your kettle. A cross from Apollo and Wye Target. Notes from the distributor: “ 07270 plays better in a recipe with heavier malt bill that leans toward the caramel side. 07270 is tangerine/mandarin on the nose and ripe peach/apricot and mango on the tongue.” We have noticed some spice in the mix as well. Check out Ninkasi’s Experimental #07270 or Independence Hoppy Diver for an example.
