Strata, formally known as X-331, is Indie Hop’s first hop variety to be released out of the Oregon State Aroma Hop Breeding Program in Corvallis, Oregon
Brewing Profile: An IPA/Session-IPA/Pale Ale (and believe it or don’t, lager hop) with many layers of different fruit flavour, dried and fresh, anchored with a dried chili-cannabis-funk that does not have any diesel, machine oil, or catty “baggage”. Late hot side additions bring out layers of rounded-tropical plus bright-fresh fruit flavours: dry hopping yields more grapefruit and cannabis. Nice with roasted malts too.
