Developed in 1998 by The American Dwarf Hop Association, a joint hop breeding venture between the owners of Roy Farms, Wyckoff Farms and Green Acres Farms, Summit™ was released for brewing trials in 2000. It has the distinction of being the first semi-dwarf variety to be bred in the United States and is currently the only low trellis variety grown in the country. Its pedigree is decidedly complex, hailing from a combination of Nugget, Zeus and Lexus hops.
Summit boasts citric aromas of tangerine, grapefruit and orange along with an impressive alpha content giving it a wide spectrum of potential use. Interestingly, despite the variety being proprietary in nature, the ADHA does not restrict where growers that license the variety can sell it.
