As I start to type this post, a vision of a tree falling in the woods with no one there to hear it zoomed through my mind. I conducted some research into learning more about Horizon Hops, I found that they are not widely available for sale. I am hoping that this situation is temporary. Horizon, I have read, is a sister hop variety to Nugget. It was bred originally in 1970 and it was released in 1998.
Origin: Pacific Northwest, USA
Aroma/Flavor: Mild citrus quality. Some floral.
Alpha Acid: Big range on the AA – 10 – 16.0% I think it is typically around 12%
Typical Usage: Bittering
Beer Styles: If you can find it, it works well in American ales and lagers. I saw some recipes for a Horizon Brown Ale. Magnum hops seem to be the alternative to Horizon if you cannot find it.
