Grüngeist is a favorite of the Hop Head Farms team and it is being discovered by brewers across the U.S.
The unique combination of peach and passion fruit are equally balanced with a hint of lemon zest and floral essence. The flavors, aromas and specs (2.90% alpha acids, 9.00% beta, 19.20% CoH, 38.30% CoL and 1.2 total oils) make Grüngeist an extremely versatile hop.

This German aroma variety was developed in the Hop Research Center Hüll (Hopfenforschungszentrum Hüll). This hop research institution focuses on hop breeding, hop harvesting, and hop chemistry. It is located in the largest continuous hop-planting region in the world, Hallertau Germany in the state of Bavaria. The Hop Research Society was founded in 1926 in response to an endemic of downy mildew in Germany. The Hüll Institute is also responsible for recently giving us great varieties like Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina Bavaria, Hull Melon .
