Origin: The parentage of Sultana™ is 50% Nugget, 25% Zeus, and 25% USDA male, which lend great aroma characteristics in combination with resistance against disease.
The hop is named after a mountain known to the Athabascans and the original inhabitants of Alaska as “Sultana” – the woman. Sultana is one of the largest peaks in the continental US and is the perfect fit for this enormous hop.
Usage: Bittering, aroma, whirlpool, and dry hopping. Great for modern hop-forward styles like NEIPA, IPA, IPL, or anywhere you want big hop flavor.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Sultana™’s popularity stems from its huge aroma and flavor profile, as it exhibits big, fruity, ripe pineapple notes, bright citrus, and a subtle hint of pine. If you’ve ever cracked open a fresh can of pineapple chunks, you can get a pretty good guess of what Sultana™’s aroma profile is like.
