Characteristics: Earthy, Fruity & Lychee
Use in brewing
A dual purpose / bittering hop with excellent flavour potential.
Topaz was originally selected as a seeded high alpha hop, but recent work has shown it to have excellent flavour potential. Topaz provides earthy notes similar in character to old English cultivars, and tropical fruit flavours that include lychee. It features resinous and grassy notes when dry hopped and its fruity profile really shines when utilized in higher gravity recipes.
