McKenzie™ hops are the first variety to be released by the West Coast Hop Breeding Company out of Oregon. McKenzie™ was specifically bred to be grown in Oregon and highlight the area’s terroir. McKenzie™ is “bright and fruity” with grapefruit, lemon, nectarine, and melon aromas that is backed by pine, resin, and wood. Fits really well in the classic West Coast IPA or American Pale Ale, but also plays well in fruit-forward and Hazy IPAs.
McKenzie™ Aroma: Grapefruit, lemon, nectarine, melon, pine resin, thyme.
McKenzie™ Typical Analytical Range
Total Oil: 2.0-3.0 mL/100g
2021 is the first crop year for McKenzie™ hops.
