Azacca ®

Named after the Haitian god of agriculture, Azacca is one of a new brood of dwarf bittering hops. Descended directly from Toyomidori, its greater parentage also includes Summit™ and Northern Brewer. Bred by the American Dwarf Hop Association, a joint hop breeding venture between Roy Farms, Wyckoff Farms and Green Acres Farms, Azacca is considered by many brewers as being well suited to IPAs.

Even with its high alpha acids, Azacca still works well as a dual-use hop, giving off a pleasant mix of tropical fruits kissed with citrus. On the palate it’s particularly spicy, with mango, pineapple and some pine and tangerine-esque qualities. It has also been likened in nature to some New Zealand-bred varieties.
