Released to the world in 2000 by Yakima Chief Ranches, American variety Simcoe® has become wildly popular with craft brewers. With a high alpha percentage and low cohumulone, it makes a very nice foundational bittering hop. It is also noted though for its favorable aroma qualities. It has a pleasantly fruity, yet earthy herbal and piney aroma.

Simcoe is often compared to Cascade for its light aroma and dual purpose uses in brewing. An alpha acid range from 12% to 14% combined with a rich aroma of earthy pine and citrus makes Simcoe a well-rounded addition to just about any style of beer. 

Try these hops in your next Pale Ale, IPA, Saison, Wheat, or Bitter recipe. Since Simcoe is so popular in the craft and home brewing community, its usually easy to find both whole and pellet hops. If you are looking for a substitute, try Summit, Citra, or Mosaic instead. Get a taste of Simcoe in commercial brews like Row 2 Hill 56 from Russian River Brewing Company.
