Minute Beer Buzz: Talking The Apollo Hop

This is a quick minute look at the Apollo Hop which is a hop that many use for bittering, and is also a hop that stores well due to its durability and high alpha value. It is mainly used for Pale Ale style beers including Pale Ales, Extra pale Ales and IPAs. This is due to its range of Alpha Acids being from 15% to 19%, making it great for bittering beer. But done right and late in a boil it can also be used to add flavors as the aromas often noted are citrus, grapefruit, orange, pone, resin and cannabis. This is a nice versatile hop indeed for those that want that bite.
