Released in New Zealand in 1994. Southern Cross is a dual-purpose hop widely used in lagers but is beginning to find a home in a wide variety of beer styles. A cross between a New Zealand Smoothcone hop and a Fuggle/early American hybrid, Southern Cross is noted to impart a soft bitterness when used as early in the boil and a lemon peel/citrus aroma with notes of pine and spice when used late. Southern Cross is marketed as a very unique hop with no known substitutes.”

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.
eBay Seller hausotterted has appeared on HBF many times. We have received great feedback on this seller. This seller periodically pulls their entire store from eBay, essentially closing down. My theory on that is that they are traveling or otherwise busy and aren’t able to fill orders in a timely manner. That dovetails in nicely with the great feedback we’ve received. Well, this morning, I noticed their offerings are back.
