Quickly becoming one of the most sought after hops, Medusa™ is turning heads in the brewing world and turning beer glasses bottoms up. Humulus lupulus neomexicanus, native to Colorado and New Mexico, forms a multiheaded cone that lends to the inspiration for its name. With low alpha acid levels and high Myrcene oil content, this hop is prime for late additions, including whirlpool and dry hopping. Medusa™ imparts strong flavors and aromas of guava, melon, apricot, and citrus.
