A descendant of Hallertauer Magnum, this is a great bittering hop with high Alpha content, and a mild flavor and aroma. Generally used in ales, this is viewed as an excellent Bittering hop. It has a high Co-Humulone content, which can make for an interesting change to the character of a beer. Newport hops also offer a subtly citrus aroma with hints of balsamic.A great choice for brews like Barley Wine and Imperial Ale.
