ORIGIN / HISTORY

US origin. Columbus, Tomahawk and Zeus, the three hop varieties with very high alpha

properties, were all produced at the same time and sold to different grower groups. Since then

it has been proven that Columbus and Tomahawk are the same variety (by gas chromatograph)

and Zeus is so similar that it is indistinguishable from the other two in the finished product!

These hops have taken the USA by storm and the acreage of all other US varieties seems to be

suffering because of it. They are all labeled as Super High Alpha.
