The breeders of the Warrior hop keep its origins shrouded in mystery. This hop's lineage and initial release date are not a matter of public knowledge, which makes drinking any beer brewed with it that much more interesting. Warrior features some serious bittering capabilities and imparts citrus notes in anything it is added to. Thanks to this bittering ability, Warrior is a vital part of many IPAs and other hop-dependent styles. Warrior is a relatively high yield hop with good storability, which makes is pretty readily available for use in hoppy American ales.
