*SEASONAL* ‘CTZ’ is an umbrella term for the closely-related varieties Columbus, Tomahawk, and Zeus. Bred for high alpha potential (14.5-16.5%), each variety shares parentage with Nugget. This American hop has excellent bittering capability as originally intended, but craft brewers have also harnessed CTZ’s intense, citrus-and-spice pungence for American-style IPAs and bitter ales. Dry-hopping can bring out aromas of pine and spice. Similar varieties include Chinook, Nugget, and Centennial.
