Hopsteiner has recently expanded a new experimental variety from their breeding program in Yakima, Washington/USA. Seventy-five percent Cascade in origin, Experimental #09326 was bred in 2008 and is an aroma-type hop that matures mid-to-late season. Its bright, punchy aro-ma has been described as grapefruit and tropical fruit, but brew trials indicate this variety also adds a distinct berry note in ales, making it an exciting hop to watch! Experimental #09326 trials are still un-derway, so stay tuned for updates on this variety.
