Simcoe® hops, previously named YCR 14, were launched in 2000 by Select Botanicals Group. It has since become one of the most popular hops for the craft beer and home brewing industries. Simcoe® has great bittering qualities, but also contains complex aromas of stone fruit, pine resin and citrus zest. This hop can be used both alone in a SMASH and with a cocktail of other fruity hops in an IPA.
