Country of origin: Japan
Alpha acid range: 13 – 16%
Brewing quality: High alpha hop known for its intense lemony flavours. Sorachi Ace hops are mainly used as a bittering hop, but with their intense lemon flavour and aroma, as well as light dill, tea, and coriander notes, some brewers use them for flavour. These hops are great in Saisons, IPAs and Wheat beers, although the extreme lemon makes them ideal for any summer beer.
