Warrior Hops Profile

Warrior® hops have become the go-to bittering hop (Alpha Acid 15-18%) for many craft and commercial breweries across America. It was developed by Select Botanicals Group and Yakima Chief Ranches in the Yakima Valley. It has a very mild aroma and contributes balanced flavor, but the bitter bite is sought after for bigger IPAs and many Imperial styles. Its high myrcene oil content contributes to its piney and zesty character.

Aroma/Flavor: Grapefruity, lemony, Pineapple, and some sweet basil.
Alpha Acid: 15.0-18.0%
Typical Usage: Bittering
Beer Styles: Pale Ale, IPA
Beta Acids 4.3 – 5.3 %
Cohumulone 22 – 26 % of alpha acids
Total Oil 1.3 – 1.7 ml/100g
Myrcene 40 – 50 % of total oil
Humulene 15 – 19 % of total oil
Caryophyllene 9 – 11 % of total oil
Farnesene < 1 % of total oil

Though its true lineage is kept under wraps by Yakima Chief Ranches in Washington, Warrior® hops exhibit similar characteristics to Nugget and Columbus hops. This makes Warrior® a high alpha bittering hop, with mild aromatic notes of resin, citrus, and herbs.
