A dual purpose American hop with an aplha acid percentage ranging from 5.5-8.5%. With balanced bittering and pungent, but not unpleasant, aromatics, Cluster adds to the authenticity of historical recipes as well as throwback American lager styles. Somewhat strong and largely underrated, the flavor and aroma of Cluster are spicy and floral with earthy blackcurrant undertones. Useful in stouts and light or dark lagers. Similar varieties include Chinook, Nugget, and Galena.
