Azacca® Hops – Adding Mango Flavor to Beer
Azacca® Hop Profile
Previously called ADHA-483, Azacca® was named after the Haitian god of agriculture. It is big in Alpha Acids (14-16%) and has a bright and refreshing aroma with juicy mango, tropical fruits, and citrus. Azacca® is a dual-purpose hop that produces sensational single-hopped beers. Try whirlpooling with Azacca® after flameout to maximize the juicy flavors and sweet aroma.
Aroma: Fresh citrus, lemon, piney, tropical fruit

Great fruity hop – Tyler 2/16/20
“I’ve always liked Azacca® for the soft fruit profile, and YVH Azacca® is as good as you’d expect from such a great company. Used as part of an American Pale Ale hop bill that won first place in the American Ale category of the Taiwan National Homebrew Competition. I’m excited to use the rest in something that lets the soft stonefruit flavors dominate. Maybe a wheaty pale ale or white IPA with a bit of Amarillo or Citra. We’ll see :)”
