Horizon is a versatile hop with some star qualities. Created in Oregon in 1970, Horizon is a diploid hop and half-sister to Nugget.
Considered dual-use it has high alpha acids, but also low cohumulone – a trait considered highly favorable when bittering. Its high myrcene and high farnesene content give it some great aroma and flavor notes too, both floral and citrusy.
It has been picked up by several craft brewers and is a star at North by Northwest brewery in Austin, Texas where it is used in its top three classic brews, as well as in their specialty beers from time to time.
