This dual purpose hop is a high alpha varietal with a neutral bitterness and intense aroma. Floral and citrus notes come out in both aroma and flavor, but can be very pungent, which makes Columbus great for late additions to a boil or dry-hopping. Columbus is a perfect choice for IPAs, Pale and Imperial Ales. Also referred to as Tomahawk, Zeus, or CTZ.
