BRU-1™ is notable for its distinct sweet fruit aroma that is often described as pineapple. When used as a whirlpool or dry hop addition, BRU-1™ delivers the aroma of freshly cut pineapple and green fruits. BRU-1™ is synergistic with other hops creating a depth of fruit flavour.
It is big and bold with a fruit-forward character that also offers clean bittering (13 – 15% AA). BRU-1 has a high Myrcene oil content that makes up over 50% of the total oil and delivers aromas of pineapple and stone fruit that is backed by a soft spice. Pale Ales and IPAs are the obvious styles. This hop is one of the new American Aroma varieties, popular for its fruity character and its ability to shine through in a beer. The breeder says BRU-1 pairs well with Citra, Chinook, and other U.S. aroma varieties.
