Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Columbus, or CTZ (Columbus, Tomahawk, and Zeus), is a high alpha varietal with a neutral bitterness and intense aroma. A true dual-purpose hop that works very well for bittering, but shines just as easily as a late addition. CTZ hops have an earthy, spicy character that is great for bittering. But when used as an aroma addition, you'll find more floral and citrus notes come out that can be very pungent. Columbus is a perfect choice for IPAs, Pales, Imperial Ales, Hazys, Stouts, and Lagers.

Hop Statistics:
Alpha Acids: 14.0 – 16.0%
Beta Acids: 4.0 – 5.5%
Alpha-Beta Ratio: 2.55 – 4
Cohumulone: (% of alpha acids): 30 – 35%
Total Oils in mls per 100 grams dried: 1.5 – 2.0
Similar Hop Varieties: Chinook, Nugget, Millennium

Love Columbus
Columbus is a great all rounder if you want to use it in an American recipe, from bettering additions to whirlpool or dry hopping, Columbus imparts a great dank, old sock aroma that is unique to American hops.

coumbus hops for a great price
these hops are a regular ingredient in most of my beers. I use them for bittering and sometimes flavor. it was a no-brainer when I saw them on sale for 10 bucks a pound.

They're CTZs. If you don't know about them already, you need to explore. Very versatile. I've used them as bittering, flavoring, aroma and dry hops, depending on the recipe.

Ol' reliable
Gotta love some CTZ. I enjoy using for both bittering and flavor additions. My results with this hop have been more floral, sticky, almost grassy than fruity, but that's just me. One of my go to hops for clean bittering with a good presence.
