Released in 2004, Boadicea is a finishing hop bred by Horticulture Research International. Known as the first aphid-resistant variety in the world, it also exhibits excellent resistance to wilt and downy mildew. As a dwarf/hedgerow variety, it grows to a shorter height than traditional varieties and yields just the same, making it an easier prospect to harvest.


Boadicea is said to have the delicate aroma of orchard blossoms, it’s also slightly floral and its farnesene presence appears to give it some spicy character. Her alpha content isn’t extraordinarily high, but high enough to produce a light-bodied and rounded bitterness when used in that capacity.
