Charles Carpenter didn’t know the legacy he was to create when he planted his first rootstock in 1869 in Yakima County, Washington (now home to the American Hop Museum!). The Ahtanum hop is full of just as much history as it is flavor. The Ahtanum hop is an American hop born and raised, it is commonly seen in American ales, pale ales and lagers. Due to its low to moderate alpha acid content, the Ahtanum has moderate bittering qualities and is primarily used for its aromatic properties and addition of flavor. It has strong notes of grapefruit and other citrus, as well as floral aromas and tones of pine and earth. We’ve teamed up with BrewDog to bring you their Punk IPA which features these historic hops.
