SIDE ARM LENGTH: 20 to 40 inches

ALPHA ACIDS: 12 to 17%

BETA ACIDS: 5 to 6%

COHUMULONE: 26 to 28%

STORAGE STABILITY: good to very good, retained over 90% of original alpha acids after 6 months storage at room temperature

OIL: 2.33 ml/100 g (4 year range: 1.2 to 3.7 ml/100 g); myrcene 60.5%; humulene 18.5%; caryophyllene 4.1%; farnesene trace; H/C ratio = 3.50

MAJOR TRAITS: very high alpha acids content; good storge stability, low cohumulone content, very good yield potential

OTHER INFORMATION: Very large cones that tend to break up and shatter during picking. Some tendency to form angel cones (small leaflets in the cone which drives up leaf and stem data. The hop is a diploid, 2n= 20. This hop is the major high-alpha hop in Germany and is rapidly becoming the most widely grown hop in that country.
