Nugget Hops Profile
Bred from Brewer’s Gold and a high alpha male, this American Hop was released in 1982 and has become increasingly popular. Though Nugget was first believed to be only a bittering hop, it is now generally accepted as a dual purpose brewing ingredient. This is due to Nugget’s very pleasant aroma of spice, herbs and soft notes of peach and pear that come through due to high oil levels in the hop.
