STRATA™ HOP PROFILE
Strata™, formerly known as X-331, is Indie Hop’s first hop variety to be released out of the Oregon State Aroma Hop Breeding Program in Corvallis, Oregon. Born in 2009, Strata is the progeny of an open-pollinated Perle located in an Oregon State experimental field at Corvallis, Oregon. From the get-go, this hop was out to impress. Between its strong disease resistance, vigorous growing habit, and complex layers of aroma, X-331 rose to the top of an impressive group of competitors.
Brewing characteristics of Strata: Strawberry, Passion fruit, Grapefruit, Bubble Gum, Sage, Dank

Awesome – Weston S. 5/16/20
“I just brewed a 100% Strata NEIPA from the 2019 crop from YVH, this is a phenomenal hop. Very very dank flavor and aroma. Great strawberry fruitiness and citrusy undertones as well. This may be my new favorite hop.”
