Though its true lineage is kept under wraps by Yakima Chief Ranches in Washington, Warrior® hops exhibit similar characteristics to Nugget and Columbus hops. This makes Warrior® a high alpha bittering hop, with mild aromatic notes of resin, citrus, and herbs.
An alpha acid content between 15% and 17% provides the perfect bittering agent in brews like IPAs, Pales, and Bitters. Options like Columbus or Nugget hops are a good substitution for Warrior® hops if needed. Taste Warrior® hops in highly rated craft brews like Dogfish Head’s 60 Minute IPA.
