This very high alpha, low cohumulone hop makes it an excellent choice for bittering. Added late into the boil it provides a strong grapefruit and hoppy note.
Descended from Zeus and two other unnamed USDA varieties. Apollo’s abundance of alpha acids also come with a sharp, clean bittering profile with other highly desirable factors being great storage stability and disease tolerance. It is usually employed alongside aroma hops in order to achieve balance but when used as a late addition or dry hop itself, some grapefruit notes become evident.
