Origin: Oregon, USA. Bred at Corvallis in 1983, as a domestic substitute for Hallertau Mittelfr�?h, Crystal is half-sister to Liberty and Mount Hood. Its stock includes German Hallertau, Cascade, Brewers Gold, and Early Green.
Usage: Unsurprisingly, given its Hallertau parentage, Crystal excels in continental lager and wheat styles, as well as Belgian ales. But since it also includes some Cascade, some enterprising craft brewers put it to use in their IPA hop loads as well.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Mild, sweet, and delicate. Highly floral with touch of noble spice; heavy doses or dry hopping can bring out a bit more intensity with suggestions of citrus peel and dried lemongrass.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
