Simcoe® has since become one of the most popular hops for both the craft beer and homebrewing industries. At 12%-14% Alpha Acid, Simcoe has great bittering qualities but also packs a complex aroma of stone fruit, pine, and citrus zest. It truly is a dual-purpose hop that is capable of standing on its own in single-hopped beers in a wide range of styles.
