Crystal Pellet Hops (1oz) a/a: 5%
Crystal is a US hop variety with parentage going back to Hallertau. Like its parent, Crystal has a relatively low alpha acid range (3.5 to 5.5%) and is best-used in the last part of the boil to impart flavor and aroma constituents.
Like Hallertau, Crystal is somewhat spicy, earthy and noble. However, crystal is said to be much more pungent and, some say, harsh than the related German relatives.
