Considered a general-purpose bittering hop, Warrior offers a neutral, clean bittering primarily in ale styles. With a high alpha range and a relative low cohumulone content, the varietal has a smooth, pleasing bitterness with a quite mild aroma especially for IPA and pale ale styles.
Typical A.A: 15 – 17%
Possible substitutes: Nugget, Columbus Magnum.
Primarily regarded as a bittering hop, Warrior will produce a tasty single hop Double IPA with additions at 60, 30, 15. 5, flameout and dry hopping. For fermentation, employ Wyeast 1056 American Ale, allowing the flavor and aroma of the malt and hops to shine in the finished beer.
