Vital

Vital is a new hop variety out of the Zatec breeding program in the Czech Republic. Both high alpha and beta acid content gives it a spicy hop aroma. To date, Vital has been used successfully in single-hopped pale ales though it was originally bred for pharmaceutical and biomedical purposes with its increased levels of xanthohumol – a potent antioxidant.
