Though its true lineage is kept under wraps by Yakima Chief Ranches in Washington, Warrior hops exhibit similar characteristics to Nugget and Columbus hops. This makes Warrior a high alpha bittering hop, with mild aromatic notes of resin, citrus, and herbs.
An alpha acid content between 15% and 17% provides the perfect bittering agent in brews like IPAs, Pales, and Bitters. Options like Columbus or Nugget hops are a good substitution for Warrior hops if needed. Taste Warrior hops in highly rated craft brews like Dogfish Head’s 60 Minute IPA.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
