Centennial: This balanced bittering and aromatic hop has a decidedly American nature with a uniquely pungent flavor. An intense citrus aroma with pronounced lemon notes also gives off some floral qualities that blend well with IPAs, APAs, and Pale Ales. Centennial is sometimes referenced to as a super charged Cascade without the grapefruit flavors of Cascade. Centennial also blends well with Chinook and Columbus hops.
Glacier: This dual purpose hop was bred by Washington State University from a large mix of varietals including Northern Brewer, Bullion, and German aroma hops, and released in 2000. Glacier provides a wonderful balance of acids and oils, making it an incredibly useful brewing ingredient. With an alpha acid range of 4% to 7% and moderate oil composition, Glacier is often used as a bittering agent in styles like IPAs and Bitters. However, it also works well as an aromatic, lending a grassy, hop forward flavor with a touch of citrus to a Pale Ale. If you need a substitution for Glacier hops, try Fuggle or Styrian Golding.
Chinook: Chinook is a very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Used a lot in IPA's. Distinct, medium intensity spice and pine characteristics with subtle notes of grapefruit. Some consider the bittering quality of this hop is a bit rough because it lingers in your mouth after swallowing. However, some brewers can't get enough. The flavor/aroma is spicy and unique, with a huge following of loyal fans.
Warrior: Warrior hops are a high alpha varietal with an incredibly smooth bittering agent. Though not typically used for their aromatic qualities, Warrior hops can add mild notes or resin, citurs and herbs to your IPA or Pale Ale recipe.
Carafa special type III: Weyermann® CARAFA® Special Type 3 is a dark-roasted specialty malt made from high-quality spring barley. Where malt-based bitterness is not desired, Weyermann® CARAFA® Special Type 3 is a perfect fit. As the de-husked version of CARAFA®, it produces rich color, body, flavor and aroma without the harsh flavors and astringency typical of dark-colored grains. (Coffee, dark chocolate, cacao, roasted almonds, bready, malty-sweet)
Midnight wheat: A very dark roasted malt that provides body with very smooth and mild roasted flavor along with intense color. This malt won't add the bitterness or astringency of other roasted malts like Chocolate or Black Malt. Made from Wisconsin wheat. (Roasted, coffee, dark chocolate)
Caramel 40: Caramel 40L is a popular and verstaile medium caramel malt that will contribute rich golden hues and smooth flavors of sweet toffee and caramel. Use 3-15% in many beer styles to enhance the body, foam stability, color, and flavor of your beer.
