Density shares the same interesting heritage as its sibling, Defender. Selected by Dr R. A. Neve at Wye College in England, Density was born as a cross from a New Mexico Wild American female hop, Eastwell Golding and other English hops. However, its very low alpha content and low yield potential has caused it to be discontinued from commercial production in England. Like it’s sibling, it is said to also feature a pleasant, European-style aroma.
