Fresh from Hopsteiner's breeding program is Altus™ (formerly X07270). Altus™ has massive spicy, dank, and resinous aromas that lend to soft tangerine and herbal, grassy notes. Booming with high alpha and oil content, Altus™ is the perfect dual-purpose flavor-forward bittering hop and has changed the way we typically look at high alpha varieties. From a Mexican Lager all the way up the pike to a triple IPA, Altus™ can repurpose itself in many recipes for those who dare to explore the creative potentials behind this variety.
