Description

This dual purpose hop is a high alpha varietal with a neutral bitterness and intense aroma. Floral and citrus notes come out in both aroma and flavor, but can be very pungent, which makes Columbus great for late additions to a boil or dry-hopping. Columbus is a perfect choice for IPAs, Pale and Imperial Ales. Also referred to as Tomahawk, Zeus, or CTZ.
 
Whole cone hops are typically the preffered format for dry hopping as they maintain contact with the beer by floating, they are easier to remove than pellets and they add a unique character to the beer. Adding whole cone hops directly to the mash tun is also a great way to add some extra hop flavor and to clarify your wort as it filters through the flowers.

Columbus Hops Amazing!
These hops where a wonderful addition to the blonde ale I brewed up yesterday. These have been the most fresh I have ever purchased, not overly dry still retaining some moisture with an abundance of aroma. Thanks again
