From Yakima Chief Ranches in Washington comes another home-brewer favorite, the Simcoe® hop. While its parentage is unknown, Simcoe® is often compared to Cascade for its light aroma and dual purpose uses in brewing. An alpha acid range from 12% to 14% combined with a rich aroma of earthy pine and citrus makes Simcoe® a well-rounded addition to just about any style of beer.
Try these hops in your next Pale Ale, IPA, Saison, Wheat, or Bitter recipe. Since Simcoe® is so popular in the craft and home brewing community, its usually easy to find both whole and pellet hops. If you are looking for a substitute, try Summit, Citra®, or Mosaic® instead. Get a taste of Simcoe® in commercial brews like Row 2 Hill 56 from Russian River Brewing Company.
