Delta is a 2009, American bred hop from a cross between the English style Fuggle hop and floral Cascade hop. The result is an increasingly popular brewing ingredient both for a luxurious aroma and substantial bittering characteristics.
An alpha acid range of about 5.5% to 7% lets the Delta hop be utilized as a bittering agent in brews like ESBs and American IPAs. The intense aroma of fruity melon and citrus with a hint of spiciness compliments the moderate bittering quality in this distinctive hop. When in need for a substitute, try parents Fuggle or Willamette. Give Delta hops a taste in commercial brews like Harpoon Brewery’s 100 Barrel Series Single Hop ESB.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
