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

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.

Great price but a little heavy in the earthy/grassy profile
This batch was a little on the grassy side

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.

Great hop
