Lotus™ is the latest experimental hop variety developed under the Hopsteiner breeding program to now be available to homebrewers. This tenacious hop outperformed thousands of brothers and sisters born of the initial cross breeding and survived a decade long journey to become the hottest addition to Hopsteiner's unique portfolio of exciting new hop varieties. Lotus™ displays exceptional aromatic characteristics, boasting waves of orange and vanilla followed by notes of candied grape and tropical fruit aromas.

Lotus’s genetic origin stems from Eastern Gold, a Japanese hop variety dating back to the 1930s, followed by a mix of Apollo, Cascade, and a USDA male. The USDA male was bred from an open pollinated seedling of a wild American hop developed at Wye College, England. The cross from the USDA male with Neomexicanus heritage adds an additional layer of complexity and uniqueness to this variety.

Light Fruity
Excellent fruitiness. Seemingly on the delicate side. I paired it Azacca and all Golden Promise IPA.

Used in a honey IPA with verdant yeast. Found the Lotus to have a wood and jasmine note. The honey came through and was enhanced by the vanilla the Verdant put out.

Unique hop!
I was very pleased with the effect the Lotus hops had our my finished NEIPA. I paired them with Citra, Mosaic and Cashmere. After the beer conditioned for about a week and a half the vanilla notes started coming through.
