Strong heavy and herbal, spicy aroma and high bittering value (along with desirable growing traits) has brought this hop variety to the forefront of the industry. This hop has become increasingly popular for its herbal aromas with a pear and peach note.

Nugget’s super alpha acid content, low beta and low cohumulone percentages give it an excellent bittering kick popular in IPAs, Imperials and other super hoppy brews. It’s high myrcene content also results in a green, herbal aroma.

Daughter of Brewer’s Gold and mother of Millennium, Nugget’s popularity has grown quickly. Released in 1983, by 1987 it was producing 14% of the Pacific Northwest’s hops.
