Simcoe® Hop Profile
Simcoe®, previously named YCR 14, was released in 2000 by Select Botanicals Group. It has since become one of the most popular hops for both the craft beer and homebrewing industries.

It truly is a dual purpose hop that is capable of standing on its own in single-hopped beers in a wide range of styles.
