Denali Hops (formerly known as Hopsteiner #06277 & Nuggetzilla) is a high impact strain that has a big aroma which imparts pineapple flavors and notes of citrus and pine (you may get a “juicy fruit” character). It has become very popular with brewers who are looking for a distinct, big flavor in their recipes.
Denali hops have an unusually high essential oil content averaging more than 4 grams of oil/100 grams of raw hops. They also have a fairly low co-humulone providing smooth bittering properties.
- Origin: United States
- Hop Type: Dual-Purpose
- Alpha Acid: 12.0-16.0%
I have not used these hops yet, but I am expecting good things. The important issue is that HomeBrew Supply had the hops that I needed, when I needed them, and I am grateful for that. Thanks for another great order, HBS!
