Japanese developed Sorachi Ace hops are best known for the unique lemon, citrus, dill and cilantro notes they add to the famous Sapporo Lager. Though primarily used as a bittering agent, Sorachi Ace is essentially dual purpose, and works well alongside Citra and Simcoe hops. A great choice for IPAs and Pales as well as Lagers.
