Zeus Leaf Hops (CTZ)
Zeus hops are the same variety as Tomahawk and Columbus, and are referred to as CTZ (Colombus/Tomahawk/Zeus). Used primarily for bittering, CTZ has a very high alpha acid content. Add a pungent spicy aroma, with subtle citrus overtones to your beer when you use Zeus. Ultimately, this variety is a descendant of Nugget and has many of the same characteristics. In recent years despite its high alpha acid, CTZ has been used during dry hop and whirlpool additions, providing a fruity aroma.
City Harvest Hop Co currently produces only leaf hops. Leaf hops refer to hops that have been picked and dried, but have not been milled down and compacted into pellets. Many brewers prefer leaf hops to pellet hops during certain stages of brewing, citing less cleanup. However, they do take up more room in a fridge or freezer. Regardless of whether you prefer leaf or pellet hops, you can rest assured the City Harvest Hops are more fresh than hops from the big producers.
