The Columbus Pellet Hop is a high alpha varietal with a neutral bitterness. It is popular among homebrewers for its intense aromas including floral and citrus notes. Known for its oil content, it helps to contribute a nice mouthfeel to your beer. Columbus can be very pungent, which makes it great for late additions to a boil or dry-hopping. Columbus is a perfect choice for IPAs, Pale and Imperial Ales. Also referred to as Tomahawk, Zeus, or CTZ.
