General Trade Perception
A semi-dwarf hop as yet not widely grown. It is limited brewing trials suggest that this is a good dual purpose variety.
Although this hop is classified as a dwarf variety it does not display all the characteristics associated with dwarfness and may grow better on low trellis, 10 foot wire work. Very limited acreage
