MEDUSA HOP PROFILE
One of the newest hops on the scene, Medusa™ is unlike anything you’ve encountered before. Native to Colorado and New Mexico, humulus lupulus neomexicanus is an entirely different species from its European cousin, humuls lupulus lupulus. Grown exclusively by CLS Farms in Yakima WA, where 8 different varieties of neomexicanus are being developed. Crazy Mountain Brewing Company and Sierra Nevada have played with this hop so far, with fantastic results.
Medusa™ delivers strong flavor and aroma characteristics of intense guava, melon, apricot and citrus fruit. Along with these highly desirable aroma and flavor characteristics, it comes in with low alpha levels. Excellent as an aroma hop in IPA’s, Pale Ales and anything that is looking for strong aromatics. Probably one of the most striking features of this hops is its multi-headed cone; it adds to the allure and story of Medusa™, truly a unique hop that is sure to become the talk of the industry.

“Very unique flavor in Sierra Nevada beer. Have been trying to get my hands on Neomexicanus strain hops for 5 years. Finally success. Look forward to many experimental beers.”
