Satus® is a trademarked variety of Yakima Chief Ranches in Washington State. It is a high alpha dual-use hop considered great as a clean foundational hop when used at the beginning of a boil and when an extra punch of hops is desired. When used late, strong citrus notes come to the fore.
To date, Satus® has not enjoyed any significant commercial use and as of 2016 no reference to the variety exists on the YCH HOPS website. It’s future appears uncertain.
